Hi I'm Bethany

I'm a junior in Chemical Engineering, a champion babysitter, and a lover of anything bright orange. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a junior in college, studying Chemical Engineering. I'm a huge nerd who loves math and logic. I come from a big family--there's nine of us--and I love hanging out with them. We go four-wheeling and camping and shooting. I love reading books and having movie nights. I love to bake cookies and dance around in my kitchen.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm the kind of person that worries a lot--about school, my family, my future career, etc. The world is a pretty crazy place, but because I have a knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that things will work out. I know that God is my Father in Heaven, and He loves me very much. He wants me to be happy. Whether I am excited or stressed, happy or heartbroken, I can talk to Him through prayer, and He hears me. He wants the very best for me, and so if I stay close to Him and keep His commandments, He will bless me. He knows that I am not perfect, and so He has provided a Savior and Redeemer, even His son Jesus Christ. Because Jesus Christ suffered and died for my sins, I can repent and be forgiven, and I can return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. I love this gospel. I love learning from the scriptures. I love that my family can be together forever, even after this life. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's church restored on the earth, and it is the only place wherein we find true happiness.

How I live my faith

For the next year and a half I will serve an LDS mission in the Philippines Cebu Mission. It will be very hard work, and I will have to learn a new language and adapt to a new culture, but I am ridiculously excited. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings me so much happiness, and I can't wait to share this happiness with my brothers and sisters in the Philippines.
