Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a daughter, a sister, a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

We live in an amazing world created by a loving Heavenly Father. I love to travel around the world seeing the beautiful things He has created, and meeting His wonderful children in many different cultures. I have a strong love for children and their perspective on life. I have spent a lot of time in Asia and I am serving a mission in the Philippines. Family is everything to me, and I love teaching people how they can be with their families forever.

Why I am a Mormon

This is truly the gospel of happiness. There is nothing in my life that makes me happier than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that we are God's children, and that He loves us. I know that this gospel blesses families, because I have seen its impact on my family. I know that we have a prophet on this earth that leads and guides us. I know that Jesus Christ came down to this earth and set up his church, and that he died for us so that we can live with our Father in Heaven again. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ, and that he translated the Book of Mormon. I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by putting God first in everything, because I know that if I do everything else will work out. I love this gospel! I love spending time in the temple. I am serving a full time mission in the Philippines. I live my faith by sharing it with others. God's plan truly is a plan of happiness, and everyone deserves the peace and happiness that the gospel brings. I really enjoy learning more about this gospel, by studying, going to classes, anything that will add to my knowledge. I have a personal relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. He is my older brother, my Redeemer, and my best friend. I know that I can do all things through Christ.

Are Mormons Christians?

Whitney
Many people wonder if ‘Mormons’are Christians. Yes we are! The official name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. But being Christian goes beyond just a name. We believe that God is our loving Heavenly Father, who created a plan that would make it possible for all of His children to one day return to Him. The role of Jesus Christ is central to this plan. Jesus Christ is the Savior of all humankind. The mission He performed while on the earth was crucial in helping us overcome the obstacles that separate us from God and prevent us from returning to Him. Though Jesus Christ we are able to make necessary changes in our lives and overcome weaknesses. In other words, we can repent and be forgiven of our sins. Show more Show less
