Hi I'm Candice

I love listening to music, learning languages, and cooking. I'm Asian at heart. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 21 years old. I grew up in Utah with my family of five; two sisters, my parents and me. I love spending time with them. Some of my fondest memories growing up is of us talking and laughing around the dinner table. I also love learning about new cultures and seeing the beauties God has placed on this earth for us to enjoy. When I was 17 I went as an exchange student to Japan for a year. After this I started university where I was studying Japanese and Asian Studies. I am now taking time off to serve a full time mission for the church in Taichung, Taiwan.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that my Heavenly Father answers my prayers. Even though I grew up in the church, it took me a while to discover my own personal testimony. My experience in Japan helped me solidify my beliefs in my loving Heavenly Father. I learned to rely on Him and He gave me peace and comfort in a land so far from my own. I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that this is God's restored church on the earth today. I know that he has called prophets to lead and direct His church. I know that this gospel can provide answers to life's most challenging questions. Most of all, I am a Mormon because I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. He has already paid the price for our sins. Only through accepting Him can we fully repent and become clean and pure like Him. I am far from perfect but I know that through His Atonement I can change and get better everyday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be an example of Jesus Christ. In Alma chapter 17 verse 11 he says, "Go forth among thy brethren and establish my word; yet ye shall be patient in long-suffering and afflictions, that ye may show forth good examples unto them in me and I will make an instrument of thee in my hands unto the salvation of many souls". I know that it is our duty to be an example of Christ, to shine forth the light He has given us for all to see. They can come to know Him through us.
