Hi I'm Debbie

I'm a small town California girl with a dream to save the world. I write poetry and climb trees. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm half Chinese and I was raised to love the cultures of Hawaii, Peru, Russia, and everything in between. I've studied English, Chinese, Spanish, German, and Latin but my favorite language is music. If I was at a piano right now, I would be playing Clair de Lune. I love the sound of the wind through the trees. Chocolate is always a good answer. I can't see a good oak tree without wanting to climb it and I can't see a bridge without crossing it. I prefer not to wear shoes and I love to waltz. I won't allow myself to settle for anything but my best effort. Some of my favorite artists are Rachmaninoff, Shakespeare, and Ingrid Michaelson. I have a wonderful mother, father, and step-mom as well as two fantastic married older siblings. One day I will be married to someone who I will love to pieces and back together again. I've lived in California, Utah, London, and American Samoa. I like to run and I love poetry. In bookstores and music shops I'm like a kid in a candy store. I'd rather hike by moonlight than by day. One day I will open primary schools in rural Chinese villages. I will stop what I'm doing to watch the sunlight dance across mountains. You can make me happy by loving my friends and treasuring yourself.

Why I am a Mormon

I cannot deny the love I have felt from God. I have little by little built a foundation of faith, one prayer at a time and one decision to follow His commandments at a time. Every time I pray I know God listens, because He answers my prayers in ways that I have learned to recognize. I truly never feel alone because I know in my heart that God is my loving heavenly father. There are many things I don't know in the world, but I cannot deny the everyday miracles I have seen that are worked by faith in an almighty God. I'm a Mormon because it brings me lasting, unshakable happiness, and it can bring peace and joy to every family for eternity.

How I live my faith

When I look at a person, I see the love God has for them radiating from their hearts and I can't help but love them too. God cannot be everywhere but I try to be His hands to lift and inspire His children in the world. I am serving an 18-month mission in Minneapolis, Minnesota to bring the message of Jesus Christ to His beloved children.
