Hi I'm Zoe

I am a Cali girl at heart, a future nurse, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college, and just started the nursing program. I am the 3rd child of four, and live in a very small town in Northern California. My family owns a whitewater rafting company, and we take hundreds of customers down the American River every year. I love being outdoors! Hiking, biking, swimming. I love to be happy!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe it makes me the happiest. Because my family started going to church when I was a young child, I was able to grow up with the wonderful support of the Church. My dad was baptized a few years after my brother, sister, and I. I am Mormon because I know that with the blessings of the Mormon church we can be together as a family forever, even in heaven. I am so happy that we are able to be together. I am a Mormon because I believe that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. It is the same as the church Christ organized while he was on earth, with Prophets, Apostles, and a similar organization. Some think that the guidelines of the church are strict or hard to follow, but it all makes sense in the long run. Everything that our church recommends that we as members do truly makes me happy and a better person.

How I live my faith

I try to be just like Jesus Christ by loving others and helping them in any way I can. By being happy I share my light with others and help others be happy. When Jesus Christ was here on earth, one thing he did was help those that are sick. By going to nursing school to become a nurse, I will be doing what he want me to do here on earth- help those who are less fortunate. I live my faith by following Christ and his teachings. Nothing helps me do this more than being a Mormon.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

One thing that I LOVE about the Mormon church is that we help everyone!! Everyone is a child of God and deserves to be helped in any way they need it. Not growing up in the church, I have seen the help they have given me and others around me. Show more Show less
