Hi I'm Avery Miyahara

I'm a Californian ocean lover, an outdoor enthusiast, I'm passionate about people and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Avery, I mean "Sister Miyahara!" :) I'm currently serving as a full-time missionary and representative of our Lord, Jesus Christ in the glorious Geogia Atlanta Mission. I like to hike and surf and ride bikes and be in the sun! I'm a huge fan of people and slurpees. I'm studying Recreational Therapy at Brigham Young University. The plan is to work with "at risk youth/troubled teens" and help them see the goodness and glory of life! oh and duh I'm aspiring to be a kick-butt mama too. Family is #1, always and forever. I'm grateful for the peace, joy, understanding and hope the Gospel offers to everyone! I believe in Christ, so come what may (and love it!!).

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to faithfully be a Mormon because it is the absolute greatest thing on the face of the planet. The beliefs we live by are God given, the doctrine we read are God given, the ever so prevalent blessings in my life are God given. The Savior is the head of this church and when we choose to accept His gospel, I can guarantee you that you will have no greater joys than what is being offered as a member of this true church.

How I live my faith

I live by my faith everyday; this is not a part time church. I have taken on the name of Jesus Christ when I was baptized and I will not mock that commitment. By doing so, my days are filled with light and joy because of the Spirit it allows me to have. I try to be the best me I can be, everyday. When I am in that constant effort, I can be an example of Christ.
