Hi I'm Aurelia

I am A missionary, a Sister, a Friend

About Me

I am 21 at the moment. I am a daughter of two talented people who met in a college play- (Guess who was Cinderella and who was the Prince?) I am a younger sister to a creative compassionate, goofy sister. I am an older sister to a fun loving, brave, crazy girl. I am the older sister of Two boys: a Six year old who knows the names of different dinosaurs, and a three-year-old that loves life. I love to write and I love literature. I'm a movie lover as well. I fall in love with cinematography and soundtracks, and could literally listen to string quartets and bagpipes all day. World Music stirs my soul, and I wish to travel and serve the world. I love pizza and spaghetti. My dad makes the best Spaghetti. Dancing has been in our family, and so has music. I'm so happy that I'm in a family that could sing a whole musical together, and all enjoy it. My Mother was diagnosed with M.S. around 2003. She is a dance choreographer, so I get to help her sometimes, and I am grateful for that! My older sister was diagnosed with Crohn's disease a year ago, and dropped to 98 pounds at some point, but she's got her weight back up now, which I am grateful for! My brother was born with Hypo-plastic - Left Heart Syndrome, which means a part of his heart was underdeveloped, and he had four open-heart surgeries by the time he was three. Our family has been through a lot of trials, but we've been blessed! I am now Serving in the Idaho Nampa Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My personal conversion was when I was Ten-years-old. I read that last chapter of the book of Mormon, just because, and I took the challenge to pray to my heavenly father and ask if the Book of Mormon was True, and if I was in the right Religion. It was night time. All my family had already gone to bed. I was kneeling in the hallway, praying in my mind- asking honestly and innocently. The Holy Ghost Confirmed that I was in the right Religion, and that the Book of Mormon was true, and all that my parents have taught me about the gospel was beautiful and right, and that I should keep it. I can't deny the feeling I had. It's like denying the sun has risen, or doubting that light is real when it's blinding to the eyes. It's something to this day that I can't deny. And when I'm having a hard time, and faith is hard to come by, I think back to that time, and I stand a little taller. Because I know that night I was converted in the church I had grown up in. If I knew it then, then I know it now. And that's why I'm a Mormon. I know- without a doubt- that the gospel is true. I know that Christ Lives and I know that he is my Savior. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book, and that Joseph Smith was a prophet. I know this.

How I live my faith

Everyday I live, and the gospel is intertwined in my life.
