Hi I'm Peri.

I love beautiful things--places, writings, pictures, and people. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My passions have taken me to over 20 countries. I simply love learning, and I want to soak up all the beauty that this earth provides through people, their creations, and their histories. I love art. It teaches me and helps me connect everything. I went to college and got a degree in advertising and graphic design. So I like to do that. I practice and teach yoga. It's a way of life and being. Yoga has taught me to be more kind toward and accepting of myself, and to balance competing demands on my energy. I love eating good food and riding my motorcycle (it's a 1963 Honda).

Why I am a Mormon

Being a free spirit is important to me. I find that when I'm following the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that I am just that...free. Jesus Christ encourages me to understand and love myself. He helps me as I stretch myself and grow. He calms my worries and reminds me that true happiness comes from following his example. It is simple and challenging at the same time. Seeing others and myself the way Jesus Christ does is the opposite of limiting! I've prayed about all of this a lot. I have felt him teach me what is true and right. That is how I know the Book of Mormon is true... I asked him! There is nothing he will withhold from us if we just ask!

How I live my faith

It means everything to me. Right now, I'm a missionary for the church. I'm serving in New York. Whatever season of life I am in I hope to share the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ, with everyone I meet.
