Hi I'm Celene

I'm in college. I love theatre. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really love the power that theatre has and the affect it has on people. I also love the incredible power and influence of the Spirit on people. Together, it's so vastly effective and can truly change people. I don't want to pursue theatre to become rich or famous. I want to pursue theatre to give them the gift that Lord has given me. I want to inspire, uplift, and change people-- just like Christ does to me. I believe theatre can unite people and bring them closer to their Savior. In this increasingly divisive world we could use a little more unity.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the peace, comfort, joy, and love I've received. Because I'm a Mormon Christ is the center of my life and He has always been there for me and has given me what I need the moment I need it. I'm a Mormon because of the light the scriptures and the doctrines of the gospel. I'm a Mormon because of the authority and priesthood power given by Christ. Ernest Hemmingway once said “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.” The more I learn in the world, especially in the news, the more happiness seems impossible. But the more I learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more happiness feels inevitable. The knowledge of the gospel is the only knowledge that gives me happiness. And when I add Christ into the equation all other knowledge and things in the world give me so much hope, peace, and joy. I am a Mormon because I believe and I trust in my Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by becoming better everyday. We all have our failings and our flaws, but Christ is there to help us overcome them and master ourselves. I love the empathy that theatre allows me to experience. It's amazing when you make Christ the center of your life, how spiritual and profound secular and daily things can become. To me theatre is such a spiritual experience because I'm allowed to glimpse a person in the way that Christ sees them. And in turn gives me so much charity and love for those around me. Loving those around me is the best way to live my faith, and it's the best way to draw them to Christ and give them the peace and happiness I've found.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Celene
Whenever I think of modesty I think of a quote I once heard: "Dressing immodestly is a lot like rolling around in mud, sure you'll attract a lot of attention, mostly from pigs and flies." How you dress sends a message about who you are. Show your respect for yourself and your gratitude for your body to Heavenly Father by dressing and behaving modestly. You want to attract people that will be respectful of you, not the pigs and flies. It's hard to respect someone who doesn't show respect for themselves. Show more Show less

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Celene
We believe marriage to be an eternal covenant you make in the temple. We believe a man and women can be sealed together for all eternity, they will be married literally forever and will continue to progress forever. Men and women are different for a great purpose. Togother a man and a woman make the ultimate team. We believe the only way to eternally progress is to be sealed to a spouse in a temple of God. To allow a homosexual relationship is not fair to the two parites involved. They become stuck and it's impossible for them to eternally progress because they will be missing that key factor that the opposite gender would be able to bring. Show more Show less
