Hi I'm Deborah Faye

I am the oldest of 8. I love my family! I love doing anything outside. I love dancing! I love to make friends! :) I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love my family. I am the oldest of 8 and it is such a blast. Some people thinks that it is absolutely crazy that my parents had so many kids, but I could not picture my family complete without all 8 of us. We are all blessings to eachother and I love them all SO much! I love trying new things. Recently I have been trying to learn the ways of playing basketball, I have a friend who is showing me the ways, and I love it. I love playing sports. Volleyball, Ultimate Frisbee, Flag Football (they are the main ones) Really, I just love being outside. Hiking, playing sports, flying a kite, walking, looking at the clouds or the stars, or even just having a picnic. :) Life is too short to be inside all the time. I love looking around me and seeing all the many blessings that Heavenly Father has blessed me with.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church and I am the way I am because of the Church. I follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ because for one, I want to be obedient to His commandments. I have found, in my life, that when I am following Jesus Christ, I am the happiest! I also treat people differently- I see them as children of God. About 5 months ago my father suddenly passed away. It was such a shocker to all of my family and really, I felt broken. I didnt understand why my dad died, but I did know one thing for sure- I knew that my dad is not lost, because my parents were sealed for time and all eternity in the House of the Lord- the Temple. Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us which is called the Plan of Salvation or the Plan of Happiness. And the Atonement of Jesus Christ makes this Plan real and possible. I am so very thankful for the Plan of Happiness because it helps me keep the Eternal perspective. I know that everything will work out. Heavenly Father loves us! He gave us the best gift ever which is His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God restored on the earth. I also know that the Book of Mormon is Another Witness of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon gives us all the plain and precious truths that have been lost from the Bible and that the Bible is completed with the Book of Mormon. And because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I also know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that Thomas S. Monson is our Prophet today that leads and guides Christ's church.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have given 18 months to the Lord to find and help others come unto Christ and receive His Gospel. :) I love working with the members in my branch that I am currently serving in. The previous callings I have had is: Ward Missionary- where I got to go help out the Missionaries that were assigned to my ward and we did lots of other service and inviting others to come to church. Young Single Adult Representive- I was incharge of helping out with activities and getting other Young Single Adults (18-30yrs old) to go to activities! It was a blast and such a great way to meet new people my own age, it rocks! Nursey Teacher- Oh man, I have such a soft spot for this calling, Nursey is for little kids from 18 months to 3 years and we did play time and snack time, but my favorite time was when we taught the children about Jesus. It was so cute to hear all their answers to questions we would ask them, but all the little kids that, really taught me, about Jesus and how He loves all of us! There is so much to be learned by little children, we really should listen to them.
