Hi I'm Beth

I grew up in Utah, I'm a runner, cyclist, and an accountant. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I have always loved school and I am currently pursuing a masters degree in tax accounting. Two years ago I took a break from school to serve a full-time mission in Florida. It was a really hard decision to make, but I am incredibly grateful that I went. I learned so much; my experience really solidified my testimony that we truly are children of a loving Heavenly Father who is mindful of us and has a plan for each of us.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and enjoyed being a part of the youth programs and activities. But as I grew older, I realized that the church is more than a social institution. I saw blessings come into my life as I read the Book of Mormon daily and applied its teachings into my life. I have prayed about it and know that it is truly another testament of Jesus Christ. Reading The Book of Mormon invites the spirit into my life and gives me power to withstand temptation. I am so grateful for the knowledge that we are children of a Heavenly Father and that he has a specific plan for us. I know that when we do what is right, He guides us along the path of life. I know that His plan extends beyond this life and that we can be with our families eternally. This is possible through the atonement of Christ. I know that Jesus Christ is Savior of the World and that with him, anything is possible. Through faith in him, our weaknesses can become strengths. I am grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because living the gospel fills me with hope and happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be like the Savior and serving in the church and community. I currently play the piano for the choir at church.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

We believe in baptism by immersion by one holding the proper authority. Baptism by water is incomplete without the accompanying ordinance of receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands. When we are baptized we promise to obey the commandments and always remember Christ. If we do so, we are blessed by the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost to lead and guide us.
