Hi I'm Justyne

I'm a college student, an actress, and a musician. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I'm a college student trying to get into a theatre education program. Some of my favorite things to do are theatre, sing, dance, draw, bake, cook, and anything that's remotely connected to that. I've been in a few theatre productions and I've sung at a few events. I love my family and spend time with them as often as I can, which is hard sometimes while I'm at school. Well, that's kind of me in a nutshell.

Why I am a Mormon

Oftentimes, the daily struggle with the world is overwhelming. It can be hard to know what to do. I'm a Mormon because the comfort and peace that I gain helps me through everything that crosses my path. There have been very special and sacred experiences in my life that have helped me strengthen my testimony of this gospel. I know this gospel is true and I know that the Savior and our Heavenly Father love each of us, everyone one on Earth, individually and that we are known by name. I know that Joseph Smith restored this gospel to the Earth and that Thomas S Monson is the prophet today and receives revelation relevant to us. Everything that this Church teaches me helps me to continue to strive to be a better person everyday. Without my testimony, I don't know where I would be.

How I live my faith

My ward is always planning something and I do my best to attend every function, especially church on Sundays. I'm not perfect, in fact, no one's perfect but we all strive to do our very best. I have had callings/positions in the Church and still do. Currently, I'm on the Institute council. Institute is basically a class taught one night of the week where more doctrine is taught to the members. Often, this calling includes cleaning up after refreshments and inviting people to come but it's such a great experience. In my own life, I know that I lean on the Savior every day to help me make it through. Whether it's classes, exhaustion, trying to understand the scriptures, or just how I can help someone else, it's through Him that I am able to keep going.
