About Me

I was born in Idaho Falls and moved to Utah because I was born with Hypo Plastic right heart pulmonary atresia. I have had 6 open heart surgeries and I have a defibrilator. Life has been tough because of all of this but because of the gospel of Jesus Christ I have hope. I love my heart problem and I wouldnt trade it for anything. I play the piano, guitar, and the organ. I love skiing, and loving playing music. I love growing stuff and having a farm. I went to American Heritage school, and then did a semester at UVU. I am know serving a mission in Oakland/sanfranciso, where I get to share the gospel with others and bring them the joy that I have enjoyed.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Idaho Falls and moved to Utah because I was born with Hypo Plastic right heart pulmonary atresia. I have had 6 open heart surgeries and I have a defibrillator. Life has been tough because of all of this but because of the gospel of Jesus Christ I have hope. Proverbs 3:5-6 has been the scripture that has given me hope through all of these trials. Also because of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the priesthood I have seen many miracles in my life. Knowing that I can live again with my family and have a resurrected body has been something i have been able to hold onto. I love my heart problem and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Being a mormon helps me understand and also have a more meaningful view of the imprtance of the family. I love my family and they have been such an amazing support for me through all my trials. Having the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and in my family has taught me how to love, to be patient, to work hard, to be diligent, and to help others. I know this church is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and atoned for my sins so that I can return to live with my Father in heaven again. I know that families are eternal and that through the Gospel of Jesus I can live with my family forever. I know that miracles happen today just as they did in the Time of Jesus. I know that the same church that Christ established when he was on the earth is this same restored church. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of god and that the Book of Mormon is true and that it contains the fullness of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

As I grew up I went to church every Sunday with my family. I loved church. I participated in all the youth activities and made a lot of friends also in the scouting program and earned my eagle award. I did lots of service for others with my friends in these youth groups. I was called as a leader for some of these youth groups and so I was able to help them and to teach them and so that was a really good opportunity for me. My life is better because of this gospel, I love serving others and I give my time to help them. I went to Mexico twice on service with my school. we are all members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. We were able to build their homes and do service for them for two weeks. It was such a happy experience.
