About Me

I just graduated from college with a degree in Human Development. I moved back to my hometown for some quality time with my parents and for some time to figure out what direction the rest of my education should take. Soon, I hope to go back and get a graduate degree. As soon as I figure out what I want to do with the rest of my working career! I am now working as a "community-based rehabilitative services" worker. I help children who have been diagnosed with anger management disorders, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, etc. I love seeing these kids grow and learn to be successful as I work with them! I love love LOVE to read any kind of books: fantasy, historical fiction, adventure, mystery-you name it! I have been playing the piano since I was 5 and clarinet since I was 10. I love music and everything it can convey; sometimes I wish I could spend all my time at the piano!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? I know that God loves His children more than any of us can comprehend. He has created more than is understandable to the human mind, and yet each individual person who has ever or will ever live on this earth is of the most importance to Him. I know that Jesus Christ gave His life for us-me and you-so that we can return to our home as we live righteously and do our best to become what He has in store for us. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lead The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and want what is best for their family. I am a Mormon because I trust my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

Every day is a gift, and I spend my time trying to give back in order to show how grateful I am for everything I have. I do this through attending church and giving my time to lead others in various activities and lessons. I also try to be positive every day so that, hopefully, I can lift someone else's spirits and remind them that life is worth living! :) I don't view service as a chore-I see it as an opportunity to create friends, give to others and learn new skills. My faith is action-serving my brothers and sisters across the world.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Death, although it causes great sorrow when loved ones leave us, is a necessary step in Heavenly Father's great plan for His children. When anyone on this earth dies, they are reunited with family and friends who have gone on before them in the spirit world. The spirit world is a place of rest from worldly cares and sorrows; it is a place where the teachings of Jesus Christ continue to be preached to those who did not have a chance to hear that wonderful message of joy during the earthly life. Those who die are in a happy state. They continue to be interested in their family and friends' lives. I know that loved ones I have lost still love and care for me; they still support me in my decisions and trials. I look forward to the time when, after I have completed my earthly mission, I will see and be with them again. Show more Show less
