Hi I'm Stephanie

I love to laugh, dance and socialize. I'm a redhead. I'm a Mormon and I'm a full-time missionary!

About Me

I am currently serving a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in California, San Jose and trying to speak Spanish. Before my mission, I worked at the University of Texas in Austin and enjoyed spending time with friends, eating great food, watching movies and lauging so hard it hurt. I love colorful clothing, anything that sparkles and have quite the collection of shoes. I can't stop dancing when I hear great music and love to smile as much as possible. I'm a fun redhead with a fiery personality who is not afraid to be Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I feel the burning truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ in my heart. I'm a Mormon because I know the principles taught carry an understanding of Christ's purpose to bring everlasting happiness, hope and a fulfilled life. I'm Mormon because it makes me the best possible person I can be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply embracing it, every day, in all I do. As a missionary it's easy to live our faith because we get to watch miracles happen all the time as a result of faith in Jesus Christ which in return strengthens our faith in Him. Before my mission, living the "Mormon life" wasn't as simple. As a young single professional in a big city, I did all I could to find my place in the world while still maintaining moral standards most no longer share. I knew by personal experience that true happiness only comes by living all the commandments of God and I was committed to this practice. It was never easy, but I started developing friendships with other members of my congreation so we could enjoy great times together while still upholding our shared values. The trials of life are much easier to face when you have a good friends that support and encourage you to keep the commandments of God. As members of the gospel of Jesus Christ, we continually strive to develop a community with a shared passion for following His teachings and bettering the lives of others as well as our own. It is through this journey that together we find hope, happiness and meaning in our lives. There is no other way to find the true joy-gems of life than through the gosepl of Jesus Christ and in His church you know you belong to part of something greater.
