About Me

Alright, let me start off by saying I absolutely love to plank! It's a new hobby I am picking up. I will plank anywhere... On the fridge, on the Rocky-Steps, on a... You get the point. Haha I love science! I plan on studying biology at BYU-Idaho beginning January of 2014! I have always enjoyed playing sports. I started playing baseball and basketball at a very young age. Growing up in Idaho, I also grew up with a strong love for the outdoors. I will never pass up the opportunity to take a nice relaxing camping trip. Even if it's just for a few hours, I try to spend as much time as possible in the outdoors. I especially love going camping with my family! They are the best :) Spending time in the outdoors with my friends... Yeah, it is one of my favorite things to do! :) I'm so grateful for my family and my friends! Without them, I definitely would not be where I am at.

Why I am a Mormon

My personal testimony is based on prayer and understanding what God wants and expects of me. Through reading the Book of Mormon and praying I have found that my relationship with God increases, and that leads me to believe and feel that I am on the right path.

How I live my faith

In a world full of distractions, it can be hard to stay focused on my beliefs. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints isn't just about believing, though. We do our best to be doers, and not just hearers ( James 1:22). By doing, we come to not just believe, but we gain experience and understanding as to why we believe what we do. Our faith is about learning, and strengthening our faith by living it.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Joseph Smith is the Latter-Day prophet whom through him, had The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints established. This is the biggest event that happened in these latter-days. Although, we need to remember that this is The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. Jesus Christ originally established this exact gospel on the earth. Joseph Smith founded the church, Jesus Christ is the original establisher. Show more Show less
