Hi I'm Della Birdsall

I was born and raised into the church. Always been active and have always loved. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Della! I am a 16 year old junior in high school. I have played volleyball since second grade and am continuing to play and am also trying cheerleading for the first time this year. I have also played softball, and done track all within the 2 years I have been in high school.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a born and raised Mormon and I wouldn't have it any other way, I have gotten the full experience that some other teenagers my age haven't. When my faith is tested I feel that I get an easier time trying to be righteous because I have such a strong foundation and long history in the church. I have had strong testaments of the temple in my life multiple times and I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by actively participating and anxiously engaging in all church activities and programs avalible to me. I also stand by my standards around non-member friends who respect my morals. I honestly love going to church activities knowing that when I go I am surrounded by people with my same standards that i do.

What is the priesthood?

Della Birdsall
We believe that the priesthood is the authority to act in the name of God. All the male members of our church have the opportunity to receive this gift. When they accept it they can lead congregations of the church, perform ordinances of the church and bless those that are sick. Men holding the priesthood serve with love, gentleness, and kindness.
