Hi I'm Olivia

I play lacrosse for Brigham Young University. I love to study plants and animals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am in my last year of college studying wildlife and wildlands conservation. I play lacrosse for my scool and enjoy making friends and traveling with a team. Hiking and riding my bike are things I love to do while the weather is good. Especially in this time of my life, I really enjoy going out of my way to meet new people and hear about them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful to have been born in the church. Every day I relearn something I was taught as a child and understand it in a new way. I have seen in my life the blessings as I am obedient to my Heavenly Father, and the sorrow and guilt I feel when I stray from the things I know to be true. Having the Atonement of Jesus Christ is something I am grateful for because I can repent and be renewed every day. I know it is worth it to try to be like my Father in Heaven because I enjoy my life and feel optimistic about the future when I do.

How I live my faith

I am not only a representative of my university as a student-althlete, but a representative of the Church as well. Wherever I travel, I carry the name of Christ with me, so I am extra sure to uphold the beliefs and charity of the Church. I also love to make friends with the women in my ward by visiting a couple of them once a month and allowing them to call upon me for service.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that through God's marvelous plan of redemption, and following the doctrine of Jesus Christ: faith, repentance, baptism, receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end, all families can live and progress together for all eternity. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Faith is believing that God will bless you when you act on the principles you have learned. Having faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ means believing that they are there and through the Atonement you can be cleansed and comforted. Ultimately, faith is acting and following the example of Jesus Christ being baptized for the remission of your sins and enduring to the end of your life as a disciple of Christ. Show more Show less
