Hi I'm Ariel

I love music. I love movies. I love my family. I love being a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Ariel! I was born in the Tri-Cities of Washington, and grew up in Spokane. I have two wonderful parents who have taught me about Jesus Christ my whole life, for which I am very grateful. :) I'm the ninth out of eleven kids, and I would definitely say that my siblings are my best friends! I love learning about and trying new things. I love to travel, and currently I can boast that I've been to nine different countries, but if you ask me where my favorite vacation spot is, I will always say Disney Land. (It's the happiest place on earth!) I like to draw, swim, and go on walks. Movie-quoting is also one of my favorite things. Currently, I'm serving in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to be born to amazing parents who put their family first and taught their children to love the Savior. Their testimonies have always been excellent examples for me, but I knew that I couldn't live off of their testimonies alone. I wanted to have that knowledge for myself! And so I studied the Book of Mormon and prayed about it, and the Holy Ghost confirmed to me that it's true. I'm a Mormon because I believe that I have a Father in Heaven who wants what is best for me and will help me through life so I can live with Him again someday! I also know that He sent His son, Jesus Christ to be my example and redeemer. I know that we have a prophet today who directs the church with God-given authority. The whole thing just makes sense.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow God's plan for me, and that means keeping the commandments and trying to emulate my savior, Jesus Christ.
