Hi I'm Savannah

I grew up in Idaho. I love life. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, a lot. I am also very keenly interested and affiliated with art. I enjoy writing, and find it an excellent place to vent your emotions. I like to design; clothes, buildings, etc. I am very in-tune with my artistic and creative side. I happen to be right-brain dominate as well! I’m young- currently only a sophomore in High school. I have a strong belief that everyone should know their self-worth, and learn their potential- despite opposition which comes through negative feedback and opinion. I am also a self-proclaimed optimist.

Why I am a Mormon

I may be young, but this is something that touches my heart and spirit. No other religion could fill the empty holes in my heart, and no other religion could help me achieve my true potential. As an LDS member, I strongly support my religion- its mission, purpose, and its accuracy. This religion has helped protect me from the sins of the world, acting as a shield. Its design has helped me overcome great pain and loss in my life. I never truly had a testimony until my grandmother passed away, and I wanted to live for the knowledge that 'I will see her again.' I know this gospel to be true-I know it in my mind, heart, soul, and spirit. I hope to let the spirit of Christ shine through my actions, and be a light for the world.

How I live my faith

I participate in the magnificent "Young Woman" program; helping young woman to recognize their divine potential.

What is being a Mormon like?

Savannah
Wonderful. It isn't always easy-it was never meant to be, but Mormonism holds all the joys life has to offer. If you find the silver lining in everything, you can face every trial with courage. Being a mormon doesn't nessacarily place us apart from any other normal person, and you can't judge the religion on one person. Mormons are normal people, but with the truth and fulfillment of the gospel. I love it! Show more Show less

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Savannah
I believe that modesty and chastity are related; by both being commandments, that when followed, will keep us morally and spiritually clean. When you're modest, you not only keep everything covered, you also wear things that reflect what you believe, and who you are as a child of God. Chastity is keeping yourself morally clean, and avoiding things that could hurt your spiritual well-being, as well as make it more difficult to progress without regrets. Chances are, if you're modest, you'll likely have an easier time being chaste. I believe parents, not being one myself (so please bear with me), can teach through example. Not only keeping the same standards they want their children to uphold, but also teaching their children when others around them aren't upholding the same standards. But this also means the parents shouldn't condemn those who don't follow the same standards, just a simple nudge towards their children would suffice. Show more Show less
