Hi I'm Darcy

I grew up in Washington State. I like geocaching. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music. I love to read. I love learning about people and places. I lived in Japan and taught English there. I spent part of my summer in Guatemala doing humanitarian work and learning how the people lived. I'm an editor. I love editing because I get paid to read. I love the smell of fall. I love my family. And I love God.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon all my life. But that's not why I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because some time between my childhood and my teenage years, and then on into my adulthood, I realized that everything I had been taught was true. It didn't come in a blinding flash...I just knew. I knew that Joseph Smith was a prophet, called of God to restore his church. I knew that because Joseph Smith was a prophet and because he was called of God, his translation of the Book of Mormon had to be true. And if the Book of Mormon was true, then I knew that God could speak to us now, like he did his followers in the Bible. I'm a Mormon because I know. I know this is God's Church. I know his son lived and died for me. I know that if I live my life according to Christ's teachings, I can return to be with him again. I know.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? Every day. I go to work every day, I practice the violin, I go shopping, and in the same breaths and in the same settings, I try to be a better person. I try to be like Jesus. I try to love people as Jesus would. I try to be what he would have me be.
