Hi I'm Dayla

I love food. I love dancing. I love creating beautiful things. I love plants. I love traveling. I love life. I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Dayla and I love food. I love to cook and bake and throw flour at people. Besides creating delicious edible things, I also love to make lots of other stuff. Jewelry, hair accessories, cards, scrapbooks, suspenders, rugs, pillow cases, beads, you name it! I love all things creative and crafty. I also love nature. I'm learning how to be a floral designer because plants are one of the best things ever. Don't ask me what my favorite color is because I can't choose just one.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it's awesome. Throughout my life I have learned about my Savior Jesus Christ and I understand that He knows me personally and loves me completely. Because Christ cares for all of us, He came to earth to be an example of how we should live. I know that by following Christ's example, I can come closer to my Heavenly Father and one day return to live with Him. I know that Joseph Smith was chosen by Heavenly Father to restore the full gospel to this earth so that we could come to know it. I know that Thomas S. Monson, the current prophet of the church, is called by God to lead us through this dispensation. By listening to his council, through prayer, and listening to the Holy Spirit I can know what God wants me to do in my life and how to become better each day. The restored gospel defines the importance of choosing the right way to live and inspires me to attend the Temple. I know that the Temple is the House of the Lord and that by living worthy to enter it, I can be closer to Heavenly Father than anywhere else on this earth.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full time mission for our church. This means that I spend everyday for 18 months teaching others about the gospel, serving those around me and continuing to learn from Heavenly Father. My faith in Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father have brought me so much happiness and meaning into my life that I want to share it with others who have not heard our message to the world. I love this work.
