Hi I'm Autumn

I'm a reader and a dreamer. I love to dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! So my name is Autumn. Currently I'm in high school, balancing a family life with my parents and two brothers, my aggressive need to read, a home school music orchestra and choir that I'm passionate about, a newly formed venture crew that promises some tales to share, and the ever present question of what I'm going to make of my life. Fortunately in a world of changes, I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, and that helps strengthen me daily to do the things I love.

Why I am a Mormon

Life sometimes feels like an uphill battle. I'll walk through the school hallways, or the busy mall and I get slammed with a deafening amount of information that tries to say how to sound, look, and be better than others. Sometimes it even contradicts itself in the process. It's the scriptures, prayer, our prophet, the For the Strength of Youth (a pamphlet of standards) that have always brought me peace among the noise. I try live my faith by action in all the things that I think, say, and do. This is where I have found happiness.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? My parents were not active in the church when they were growing up. In fact, I can remember the day my Dad got baptized. The following year we got to go to the temple as a family to take part in the ordinance, promise, of having an eternal family. Even from that young age, I knew that what were taking part in was real. Since then I've been able to learn more on my own. The lessons are easy to access, so I read and thought about the things I found, and prayed about it. Each time I have felt of the truth of this gospel. It has always been a light for me during difficult times. With my leadership role with the youth I even get to share these lessons with my friends and family. Often I get to participate in the local community service projects our church supports. Most often I feel I live it in the little things of the day. I feel that through my faith, I'm able to better able to support a friend who is experiencing a loss, or share a scripture with a classmate who is struggling, or join in a prayer with a family member as we give thanks for the blessings we've received.
