Hi I'm Miranda

I write novels. Music is my lifeline. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey there. I'm a member of the LDS church- a Mormon- and I love to write. Really, I do. Writing stories, music, and sometimes poems, though that's a little harder. I enjoy it. I live in my own world. I can play 5 instruments. I'm a band nerd and I love performances and everything about my life. My friends are crazy and I love them dearly for it. Not all of them are LDS, but most are and I've grown up like that.

Why I am a Mormon

I am born in the covenant, meaning my parents were LDS before I was born. Even though I don't get an amazing conversion story of, 'Oh, the missionaries found me when I needed them most' I do know that I wouldn't choose to do anything else, be anyone else, or live any other place. I love this church and it's really important for me to live in the center of where the "Mormons" really came. Otherwise I'm unsure of how my life would be. But I love it. This gospel has made my life so much easier and I have found so much strength I never would have found otherwise.

How I live my faith

I've been in several "presidencies" in the youth groups. Over the summer I was in the "leaders in training" group over Young Women's camp for our stake (group of members in our area) and so I helped teach, inspire, and love all of the girls in our area. At school I am not ashamed of my gospel and am willing to share with whoever asks. I attend Seminary, a gospel-teaching class during school hours (for me) and I love it so much.

What is being a Mormon like?

Sometimes being a Mormon is hard. Lots of people in the world don't understand us and assume some pretty strange things (We're human, too, so why do people think we have horns?? I've never understood that). But being able to have this gospel, to have extended neighborhood families that I can turn to, it's amazing. To be able to have the spirit of revelation in my life is so amazing for me. I love being able to pray and have them answered. Show more Show less
