Hi I'm Candace

I'm a nurse. I'm a daughter of God. And I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in St. George, Utah with a loving family. I have two brothers and a younger sister who is my best friend. We love to spend time together as a family and our activities are usually always centered around the water. I LOVE to go boating and my favorite place in the world is Lake Powell. As a family we also love to travel and visit tropical places around the world. I love the water, whether it's in a lake or at the beach and I have come to see the beauty of the earth because of it. I recently graduated from Utah Valley University with my nursing degree. I love to help serve people and I want to do that through my nursing career. I love people, but I especially love children. I hope that through nursing I will be able to help kids through their illness and try to be a bright spot in their dark hour.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints. In my family we grew up going to church and learning about the gospel; that's just what we did. But now that I am grown, I continue to be active in the gospel of Jesus Christ because of my personal testimony that I know this is the true church. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who restored this gospel back to the earth. I know that we have modern prophets on the earth today that communicate with God and reveal to us what He wants us to know. I know that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me and loves me and wants me to live according to His gospel so I can return to live with Him again. I know that Jesus Christ performed the ultimate act of love through His atonement for the world. I know that he atoned for my sins, my short-comings, my sicknesses, and all of my weaknesses. He did it because He loves me and as I apply His atoning sacrifice in my life I can be forgiven of my sins, and receive divine help in my life everyday. I continue to be a member of this church because of the happiness that it brings into my life. When I live according to the commandments of God, and follow the teachings of His modern prophets I find peace and joy in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by putting the gospel of Jesus Christ as the center of my life. As I make my Savior and His church as my number one priority in my life, everything else falls into place. In a few weeks I will be leaving my family, my home, my country and the things that I love, to serve a full-time mission in Argentina. During the next 18 months I will be giving my whole heart and energy to help bring the people of Argentina to Christ. I will be serving them, loving them, and teaching them about the gospel, about our Heavenly Father and about our Savior. I have a strong testimony, and I know that I am a daughter of God. I know that I lived with Him before I came to this earth, and I know that if I live my life according to His commandments and His word then I will be able to return to live with Him again. This knowledge has changed my life and I know that it can change others as well. I want the people in Argentina to understand what I know, and experience the indescribable joy I have found in this gospel.
