Hi I'm Heidi

I grew up in Utah. I am a writer and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I have been a member of the church for my entire life. I grew up in a loving family of eight, one of whom has passed away. I recently graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. I am a writer of young adult fiction, and I hope some day to be a full time writer and stay at home mom. I love to help with charity and service and to spend time with friends. I love going to movies, listening to music, singing, playing my guitar, violin, or piano, and reading. I am the chef of my family, so I get to plan out all the meals and do the shopping and cooking. Though it can be stressful, I love it! Cooking is one of my favorite hobbies. My favorite holidays are Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! I am really into the 1950s, and my record player is one of my best friends. My other best friends include my three dogs, who are my most constant companions. I also have some best friends who are actually people too :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I know that it is true. I was raised in the gospel, but that is not why I am a member. I have found out for myself that it is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I have a strong testimony of that, and it will not be broken. I become discouraged, like everyone else, but I still know that the gospel is true, and I constantly turn to the Lord for comfort and guidance. There is nothing that has brought me more peace than this gospel has. I continue to live this way because I know that I need it and I know that it is good for me. The guidelines that have been put in place by the Lord are not meant to be restrictive. In following them I know that I am safer and happier and that I will have a better life.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith in everything that I do. I regularly attend my local singles ward. I love the singles ward and that we are all around the same age and in roughly the same stage of life. I am the ward Media Specialist, which just means that I created the program for Sacrament Meeting each week. It can be stressful, but I like it. I am also a visiting teacher, which means I have the opportunity to go out and visit with and teach other girls in my ward.
