Hi I'm Heather

I am an artist, I have gingery-brown hair, I love watching movies, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am mid-way through a degree in art. I know, you just stopped taking me seriously right there. In all seriousness though, art school is WAY harder than you would expect! I am taking 7 courses, with three hours per class per week, that leaves hardly any time for homework, and really no time for my job. I work in retail, and I love it. I love talking to people, helping the little twelve year olds get thier first pair of big girl jeans, or finding a gift for a friend. When I am not working, or at school, I like to "relax" with friends and watch a movie. I say "relax" ironically because I hardly ever relax while watching a movie. I usually do homework! The late night classes make for late nights, and even later mornings. I cant wait for the day when I am employed somewhere with REGULAR hours. Oh sweet bliss.

Why I am a Mormon

Having recently moved away from home, each time I go home I am reminded why I live the way I do. And even more than that, when all the siblings are together, along with the spouses and children, Its then that I am the most myself. They drive me insane, my dad makes me roll my eyes, my mom wierds me out with how similar we are and it strikes me that I wish that we all lived together again. I start wishing no one had jobs, or other obligations they have to go back to. and then I think "Not this day, but one day soon." knowing that I will be with my family forever is the biggest comfort I could ever ask for. But, it is also the biggest challenge. I have to work every day to keep myself doing the things I know will help me to not only live with them forever, but to return to the loving arms of my Savior.

How I live my faith

I attend a Young Single Adult congregation for unmarried 18-30 yearolds. I am one of the youngest being only 19, but I am a teacher once a month to all the women in the last hour of our sunday meetings. It is a huge responsibility and it is a little daunting at times, but i am learning so much both about the gospel of christ, and about myself. Each time I teach I know that there is a reason that it is me teaching rather than someone else. I was asked to volunteer of my time to teach because it is what I needed. If I reach no one through my lessons, me being apointed as a teacher will still have been a success, because I have been moved every time I teach. My testimony of christ grows each time, as does my love for the women that I teach.
