Hi I'm Justyna

I'm a high school senior. I'm a member of the FFA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm basically your average teenager. I am the oldest of six kids. I live in a rural town where the closest Walmart is a twenty minute drive away, but I enjoy it. I go to a public school and take all the normal classes. I'm in FFA and I love competing in FFA floral competitions. I enjoy making floral designs for weddings and other occasions. My favorite class in school by far is Advanced Art. I love working with my hands. I also enjoy learning new languages like Spanish. I babysit on the weekends for extra money. This year I graduate high school and will move on to college. After that I hope to be married to the right guy and be sealed in God's temple. I love the Gospel. It by far plays the largest role in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? Well that's a great question! There are many reasons why I am Mormon, number one being that I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all my heart! I know that Christ died for me and I know I can return to live with him again. I guess the next question would be, well there are a lot of other Christian churches that believe that, why the Mormon church? I go to this church because I know that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that the plates that he found and translated that later became the Book of Mormon contain God's word for us today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true because I have prayed so much to know just that. God doesn't lie, and I know that anyone who reads and ponders the Book of Mormon, and truly wants to know if it is true, will receive and answer from God. Because I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet, and I know that we have prophets today that help to lead and guide us. That is why I am Mormon, because if this church is true, then the prophets and apostles of the church are true, and they can help lead and guide me today.

How I live my faith

Well, there are lots of ways I try to live my faith in many ways. I attend as many church meetings as I can because they help to strengthen me, like exercise for your spirit. I go to seminary every morning before school to participate in a Bible Study class. I love going to this class because it just sets my day right. If I wake up in a bad mood, helps me to have a better attitude and be more Christ-like. I also study scriptures, like the Bible and the Book of Mormon, they help me to see Gods plan, and know my part in it. Oftentimes, when I'm struggling with something, I will find the answer in the scriptures. I guess the main thing I do to live my faith is I try to be as close to God as possible and show God's love to everyone I meet. My faith is precious to me, so I want to share it as much as I can.
