Hi I'm Veronika

I grew up in South Jordan. I am a college student in southern Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in Utah my entire life which might sound typical for a member of the LDS church. However, I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I grew up in a nice neighborhood in northern Utah with my parents and six siblings. I treasure my family and am grateful to have eternity with them. I am a college student hoping to graduate and get a masters in applied behavioral psychology.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up as a member my entire life; however, I have tried to learn all I can about outside perspectives, other religious beliefs, and experiences different from my own. I have come to understand amazing spiritual concepts from incredible people of all backgrounds. I am grateful for these experiences because they make me question why my beliefs are the way they are. As I have dug deeper into what I believe, I have come to truly have a knowledge that there is a Father in Heaven who loves me and knows what I am going through. As I have read the Book of Mormon and the Joseph Smith story, I have felt the spirit confirm the truthfulness of these. As I have researched and studies various religions and physical evidences of God, miracles, and ancient records, I have discovered that truth and conviction undoubtedly comes from the Holy Ghost and by no other source. The spirit can testify of all truth whether it is read in the book of Luke from the New Testament or in the pages of a biology book. I am grateful for the knowledge of Jesus Christ in my life to bring hope and comfort when I need it. As a member of the Church I am constantly striving to improve myself and help all those around me for the better.

How I live my faith

I am an active church member who is currently a First Counselor in the Relief Society Presidency (a group of sisters united to provide service to those in need). Because of this I am often in meetings discussing how we can unite our sisters. I help set goals that bring our ward together as friends and how we can assist each other spiritually and temporally. I give service with the ward where service is needed and am continually looking out for ways to cheer up the sad and give a hand.
