Hi I'm Rhiannon

I'm a student. I'm a singer. I'm a reader. I'm a banana bread baker. And I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I am a generally happy, multidimensional person. I absolutely love to sing. I collect stuffed animal camels. I think that I owe it to the world to make it a better place. I think that reliability is ultra important. I think that it's important to embrace who you are, but possibly even more important to be able to look at yourself and see when you need to change. I absolutely love to make oatmeal raisin cookies, guacamole, and banana bread. I love to read, I love to learn, I love politics. I think that it's important to realize that being born on third base doesn't mean that you've hit a triple, and that teaching people is one of the greatest forms of service. I don't make snap judgments, I think things through for hours and hours. I'm the daughter of two wonderful parents that have raised me well and taught me to think independently. I'm the older sister of two younger brothers, and the younger sister of an older sister, and I strive everyday to be a worthy example for them and to learn from them.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church on the earth today. I know that my Savior lives and that he loves me. I know that I have a Heavenly Father, and that he knows me personally. He knows my trials and he loves me in spite of them. I know that I am his daughter, and that, with this royal heritage comes great responsibility to do what is right. I know that Joseph Smith restored the gospel to the earth, and that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that I have a purpose on this earth and I strive to fulfill it. I know that sometimes the first step of forgiveness is repentance. I know that families are meant to be eternal. I love this gospel, I love my Savior, I love my Heavenly Father. I know that this is true, not because I've been told it by leaders or by my parents or by my friends, but because of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints isn't a weekly thing. It isn't something that only applies while I'm at my church building or at my early morning seminary class. It is truly a lifestyle. You live it and you love it and you share it. It reflects in the way you speak, dress and act and I strive each day to act as a witness of Christ, to do as he would do and to love as he would love. I don't swear, I don't drink, I don't gamble, I don't smoke, I don't go shopping on Sundays. It isn't that I Cannot do any of these things, it's that I Will Not. And that's an important distinction. To be a Mormon is to serve. That is one of the fundamental parts of our religion, and one that I'm working to implement more into my life. Doing as Christ would do and loving our neighbors, being considerate of everyone we encounter, sharing what we have....That is how I live my faith.
