Hi I'm Whitney Sanders

I am from Southern Utah. I am a hairstylist and now a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a hairstylist. I went to cosmetology school when I was in high school where I learner much about the beauty industry. Also when I was in high school I did an internship with the Utah Division of Wildlife where I studied fish indigenous to my local river and about there habitats. I love being outside, camping, hiking and swimming. I am the oldest of 4 kids and live on the same street as my aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. There is always something going on in our neighborhood with my crazy fun family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because I know there is a Father in Heaven who loves His children. I have felt His love for me and the world. Because He loves us He has made a way for us to be happy through His son Jesus Christ. I know that even though I have made bad decisions and have done wrong things in my life those things can be forgiven and I can be free through Jesus Christ. I know that because Heavenly Father loves us He has given a prophet to guide us today so that we can have Heavenly Father's guidance and words to us specifically to bring us more happiness than we can imagine. I know The Book of Mormon is a true testament of Jesus Christ by the people who anciently lived in the Americas. I know that in addition to the Bible The Book of Mormon teaches us the ways we can live happy and how we can live with Heavenly Father and with our families forever. I have come to know for myself that these things are true through the answers of my prayers, through studying the scriptures, and by practicing the things I have learned. I know that you can find the truth for yourself by praying and asking Heavenly Father for the truth. Because He is your Father in Heaven He will do everything He can to provide you with the answers you need. He wants the best for you and wants you go be happy.

How I live my faith

I teach 8 and 9 year old children in church. We talk about the gospel and how it can make them happy by choosing to live it. I love singing with them in church. Over then summer I had the opportunity to help plan a girls camp for the youth 12 to 18 where we camped outside for 4 days and learned about nature and thing we need for survival. And now I am preparing to go on a mission where I will teach about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for 18 months.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Whitney Sanders
The Book of Mormon was written by people that lived in the Americas that came from Jerusalem about 600 years before Christ was born. Generations of these people kept this record of their people and their dealings with God. They new Heavenly Fathers plan and about the Savior Jesus Christ. It is also a witness that Christ came here to teach these people in the Americas. It supports and clarifies The Bible. Show more Show less
