Hi I'm Ariana

I love traveling and music. I study in Switzerland. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I converted to the church, baptized in October 27th, 2007. My hobbies include reading and playing the flute and piccolo. Because of my love of cultures, languages, and nature, I have traveled to 25 countries. I currently attend a university in the Ticino region of Switzerland, majoring in international communications. I'd love to travel to Antarctica someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true and purely remarkable. I learned about the church after visiting the Salt Lake City temple visitor's center in Utah while on a road trip in the West. When I first started going to the local LDS church, I felt welcomed and immediately had a liking toward the hymns. From having missionary discussions and attending and participating in church and the youth activities for a couple of years, I had slowly gained a testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Book of Mormon, the restoration of the gospel, and the prophet. I then decided to be baptized and have been an active member ever since.

How I live my faith

After being baptized in the church, I've strived to live my faith. I try to go to church every Sunday and read the scriptures daily. Other ways that I try to live my faith include making an effort to smile more, help others, dress modestly, use clean language, and listen to clean music.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Each and every one of us has a divine purpose in life. Mormons believe that the purpose of life is to prepare, learn, develop, and progress to become more like Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
