Hi I'm Constanze

I am from Germany and live now in Louisiana. I love singing, dancing, medieval sword fighting and I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Germany, mostly close to Darmstadt! I really loved it there and I miss my family and friends. Now I am in Louisiana,far away from home! Why?? Well I guess one could say a desire for adventure, but even though it was hard for me to leave my parents, siblings and friends behind it simply said felt like it was the right thing to do. I became a nurse and I really enjoy helping people, not only with medications, but also to stand by them when they need emotional support. I also met my husband here, he really is one of the greatest blessings I have ever received in my life!!! I love allot of things, I love music, dance are just a few. I like to be creative, contrary to school times I also even now like history (even though I can't remember dates right), I love medieval sword fighting and I love being a wife, and I love the gospel!

Why I am a Mormon

Good question. First of all I was born to loving Mormon parents who raised me in our faith, but even when you are born as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints, there comes a point in life where you have to find out for your self, if this IS right for you. All my life I knew that someone is there listening when I prayed, I came across many miracles, I knew that the story of Joseph Smith might have sounded weird to many or all of my class mates in school, but to me it made sense, and I knew that in my heart, so all was well one would say! When I was about 22 or so I came to a point in my life where I just wanted to give up. I know I was young.. and I still am, but never the less, loss of loved ones, life changing events and tragedy will not pass you buy just because you are young. I didn't know how to get through all what was in the past, and most importantly how to tackle my future, and how to learn how to trust again. I found a scripture in that time where it says: " Be patient in afflictions, for though shalt have many; but endure them, for, lo, I am with thee, even unto the end of thy days". First I thought to my self "well thanks, I will have many, really!!" I thought I could not talk to anyone about my problems. I went on my knees and had one of the longest prayers of my life. I felt the lords love and his sadness to see me that way, it almost felt like he literally put his arms around me, to comfort me, and he did! Of course after that not everything was easy, BUT I knew no matter what HE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE! And now 11 yrs later I have to say, even if the hard ships got, lets say less intense for now, they still come, BUT not ALWAYS and when they come my Savior is there to carry them with or even for me, if I let him! Now I started to understand what the savior meant when he said: "I never said it would be easy I only said it would be worth it!" IT IS!!

How I live my faith

Currently I help with activities with our young Ladies (12 - 18 yr old's). It can be challenging, but its allot of fun! I also try to help and support people who feel the way I felt, I try to help them see that life in that moment seems hopeless, but there are still times in life that were good times and that the future can be AMAZING! And that there is hope for all of us! I try to be a good friend, since I experienced how important good friends in hard situations can be! (I was luckily blessed with very dear and good ones!!) I love going out with our Missionaries! They are great examples to me, they have a wonderful spirit and it is fun to share our beliefs with others. I try to be a true follower of Christ, help where help is needed, willing to forgive easily, attending church, serve others, and try to set a good example. Of course I'm not good in ether of these categories and I still have to learn many things! But I love life and the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I try to live that way!
