Hi I'm Autumn

I am studying to be a surgeon. I love being in nature. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest child of five. I love art, anatomy, and anything outdoors. I love watching movies or reading books that teach me about the world around me or inspire me to become a better person. I am pre-med student working towards becoming a surgeon. If I am blessed with the opportunity to get married and have a family before med school I will work towards grad school to teach anatomy.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been raised in a prominent LDS family. While it took me several years to recognize that I'd actually developed my own testimony, the spirit has always spoken peace and understanding to my mind about and the truths I've grown up learning. It can be hard sometimes to follow the instructions I've been given to lead a righteous life, but through my own struggles and mistakes I've learned it ends up being MUCH harder NOT to follow the Savior. We all have to go through trials and it is infinitely easier to bear these troubles with the Savior standing by helping to make me strong and lift my load. I know that while I hope to be able to be a doctor and do as the Savior did in healing others physical ailments, the most important responsibility I've been sent here to accomplish is to be the best wife and mother I have the power to be. I do not intend to be a career woman and leave the raising of my children to someone else. If I am to stand confident before the Lord at the last day and say that I have done all I could in my power to teach and righteously raise His children He gave me stewardship over, I know that I must be there for them physically, emotionally and spiritually to help guide them through these increasingly difficult times.

How I live my faith

I have been a leader of the "Home Evening" groups in my church- In these groups we have Monday night activities to help strengthen faith and friendships of the young single adults within the church. This is a pattern that the Church encourages these young adults to carry on when they are married and have families of their own (then called Family Home Evenings- often referred to as FHE). These Monday nights are special memories in my life and are opportunities for families to grow closer in faith and love as they work together to make it through the craziness of life. Seeing as the family is the fundamental unit of not only the Lord's plan but also society, it is extremely important to build up a safe haven within the home to ward against the devil's attempts to tear the family apart.
