Hi I'm Deidra.

I am from Idaho. I am the oldest of four girls. I am serving in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play the clarinet and piano. I love beautiful music. I love the outdoors. My family is so special to me and I love them so very much. I find satisfaction in working hard and making things happen. Nature is beautiful and has a very special place in my heart. I love to smile and laugh. I love the example that Jesus Christ has set for me. I know that he loves me, that he loves me so much that he helps me to change and be happier.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be. I go to church because I need the peace that I find there. I was born into a family that are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The gospel of Jesus Christ is such a huge part of my life and my life would be empty without it. I know that Jesus Christ loves me and suffered for all of my sins. I know that Heavenly Father is aware of my pains and sorrows. I believe that by following all the teachings of the gospel I can find true happiness. I know that the prophet receives revelation for me and other members of the church at this time. I love Jesus Christ and will always try to live up to his standards. God loved me so much that he gave his only begotten son for me. I cannot imagine what kind of suffering he endured for me. I am grateful for all that God has blessed me with.

How I live my faith

I study the scriptures daily. I pour out my heart to a loving Heavenly Father regularly because I need His help. I go to church every Sunday. I teach people about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I serve others who need the peace that Jesus Christ offers. I try to think positively as much as possible because that makes me happier. I love The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Temples are used to make families forever. We believe that temples are sacred and some people don't have the same respect for them as us. That is why only members of the church are allowed inside. Show more Show less
