Hi I'm Ariel Peet

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an interior design student and just got married this past summer. My husband is a grad student and we long distance dated for almost a year before we got married. Now, we are both miles away from our families as we adjust to the joys of married life together. We are Nursery teachers and love teaching the children. We love to travel and love the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Utah and was surrounded by people who were LDS, though my family became inactive when I was only 8 years old. However, I always knew the church was true. I kept going because it made me happy and because deep down I knew it was the right thing to do and every time I attended church, read my scriptures, or talked about the gospel with my friends I would feel such an amazing warm feeling that what I was doing was right. My grandparents and friends and seminary teachers were great examples for me and helped me stay strong.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday and have the calling as a nursery teacher and teach young children, with my husband, about Jesus Christ, Heavenly Father, the Holy Ghost, prayer, families, etc. I am also a visiting teacher and visit women in our ward to send them uplifting messages and to be them whenever they need a helping hand.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Ariel Peet
Mormon lifestyle and the way we live is fairly similar to everyone around us; we attend school, have jobs, experience life's struggles just like everyone else, though in order to overcome these every day struggles and to feel joy we have personal and family prayer every day, scripture study from the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and attend church every Sunday. We abstain from harmful substances to the mind and body and keep the law of chastity. Families are also an essential part in our lives, so we are very family oriented and tend to have bigger families. We also strive to be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ, and believe in service - contributing to the church in ways of church callings, attending the temple, offering a helping hand when needed, contributing to the society outside of our church, and we have missionaries to spread and teach those who are unfamiliar with our beliefs.
