Hi I'm Addie

I love to get to know new people!I love music,arts,the outdoors and making people smile.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I am currently a freshaman (first year) student at West Virginia University studying to get a child psychology major. I love music and am a member of the 400 sized "Pride of West Virginia" the WVU marching band ( I play the piccolo). I have also played in concert bands playing the flute and I have also played in orchestra's playing the violin which I had played for seven years. I love to play sports as well, such as soccer and ultimate frisbee. I love to be in the outdoors and do activities outside such as camping in tents and hiking.However I also enjoy staying in and curling up on the couch and reading a good book or simply relaxing. I love to travel and see new places and meet new people. I just find it fun and exciting to discover new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church and I have been so blessed to have it in my life. Without the Lord's gospel I really am not sure where I would be now. With the gospel in my life I have the knowledge and increased faith to know that the Lord is and always will be there for me.I know that if I need guidance and I ask and pray for it I will always receive an answer.It sometimes may be immediate or not the answer I was expecting but every time I followed and listened to it I have been blessed. I know that we are all children of God and that I am a daughter of a King.With the gospel in my life I have felt so happy and seem to always feel that way and try to always look on the positive side because with faith I know that things happen for a reason and that the Lord has a plan just for me because I am a unique child.I have the faith to know that I have been sent here to grow and learn and to be strengthened and that the Lord will never give us more than we can handle, even though it sometimes feels otherwise. I know that he will never leave our side and that we need to keep our heart open to him and let him in. I know that if we follow his plan for us and we follow his guidance that we and I will be blessed with happiness and other wonderful blessings. I have continued to follow the gospel because ever since my youth and in high school it has never led me astray and has given me answers and has given me wonderful blessings. I love the church with all my heart and soul and pray and hope that others too may be able to feel the happiness and comfort and blessings such as I have.

How I live my faith

I help organize and place together the activities here at the student ward and I am also a ward missionary. Which is just someone who keeps in touch with members to see if they need help and make sure they are doing okay and help pass along that they are always welcomed and loved by everyone in the ward.
