Hi I'm Sister Conover

I'm a college student, a musician, a writer, a friend, a Californian, and the youngest of five kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California with my loving family and wonderful friends. I love music - listening to it, composing it, or playing it. I'm a college student studying English and I am loving every minute of it, even the stressful parts. I am going to serve a mission in Guatemala for the next few years and I am excited to teach the people there. My friends are the best I could ask for and I try to be the best friend that I can be for them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have attended church with my family my whole life. I am a member of this church because I know that it is true. I have felt the Spirit testify that to me on many occasions. The doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints help me to know who I am, where I came from, why I am here, where I am going, and what my purpose is in life. Coming to college makes you think about why you believe in your beliefs and I have found out for myself that this church is true and that its teachings are also true. I know that I am not perfect - far from it - but I know that Heavenly Father (God) will help me if I ask in prayer and in faith. I am a daughter of God that loves me and wants to help me, but He also wants me to use my agency to choose to ask for His help. I know that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world and that He did it willingly. The Book of Mormon is true and there are Prophets on the earth today. Being a member of this church makes me happy in knowing that the truth is on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to my friends and family that are around me. Some of my friends have told me that my example has helped them to be more true to their own beliefs and to themselves. I try to bear my testimony whenever I can. I used to talk with my physics teacher during lunch about what I believe and it has helped me talk about my beliefs easier with people. I love doing service for people - be it a smile, cleaning up their yard, making dinner for them during a hard time in their lives, what have you. It's helps the people I am serving and it also helps me because I know that I am doing what Christ would have me do. I strive to be more like Christ everyday and try to grow closer to Him by reading the scriptures, praying, and obeying God's commandments.
