Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in Colorado in a musical family. I like trying new things. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm the 7th child of 10 of children. I'm a twin. I play the piano, violin, and guitar. I am getting ready to serve a Mission for my church in Portland, Oregon. I like to read fiction. I like to spend time with my family and play card games. I love getting to know new people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I have also learned that God is real and that the Book of Mormon testifies of Jesus Christ. One night when I was really discouraged I decided I wanted to know for myself that the Book of Mormon was true and that God answers my prayers. I got on my knees and prayed my heart out. I was overcome with a wonderful feeling and I was so happy I cried. I know that this church helps lead you to happiness. As I continue to increase my testimony I continue to know why this church has helped me and brought me closer to God. I don't know everything but I do know how I have felt and that is fundamental!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a good example to my friends and acquaintances. I also live my faith by serving Gods children and my brothers and sisters. I live my faith by trusting in God that he can help me overcome my weaknesses and hardships so that one day I can gain Eternal Life. Faith is a lifelong goal and it is crucial for a true conversion. Having faith is to make the right choice because you love God and you want to keep his commandments. Having faith is being able to repent and come unto Christ. Believing in Christ's Atonement is key to find everlasting happiness. Faith will help us all pass safely through trials and see miracles in our lives. I have also heard that faith precedes miracles. If we have faith we will see all of Gods wonderful creations. I live my faith by praying for strength to choose what I want to major in and what is Gods will for me in this life. I also pray for forgiveness and mercy and that I can do all I can do to serve and please my Heavenly Parents

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We can know our Heavenly Father by being humble and having a desire to feel his love and guidance in our lives that most often comes through prayer and scripture study. A scripture most people know is, "Faith without works is dead." We need to have faith that we can know our Heavenly Father but first we need to do our part. We need to try to become like him. We can also show our love for his as we obey his commandments and serve with full purpose of heart. We also need to remember that getting to know someone and having a personal relationship with them does not immediately happen. It needs to grow and flourish over time. Show more Show less
