Hi I'm Mindee

I've lived in Utah my whole life. I'm a college student. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After 16 months straight of college classes, my love of learning shows no signs of stopping. I work as a youth gymnastics coach, and enjoy serving in the community with my roommates.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel so blessed to have been born into the Church. My parents have taught me the gospel of Christ since my youth, and I continue to follow it this day because I have learned for myself that it is true. Little by little, my testimony has grown as I've studied the Book of Mormon, prayed about it, and felt good inside. The Holy Ghost has born witness to me that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, that he really did translate the Book of Mormon by the power of God, and that God has restored the fullness of His gospel on this earth today. By following God's commandments, big and small, my testimony has grown day by day. I know with all my heart that Jesus Christ came to Earth, performed the Atonement to cleanse us from our sins, and was resurrected the third day after his crucifixion. I have no doubt that He lives today, right now. I can pray to my Heavenly Father, and He will answer because I am literally His daughter and He loves me. I am committed to living all my days in accordance with this gospel because I know that this is the only way I can truly be happy.

How I live my faith

Sundays are my favorite day of the week. This is when I have the blessing of leading the women in my neighborhood by teaching and learning with them. I sing in our church's choir after our meetings, and return home to quietly reflect on the past and future week and set goals for spiritual growth. Every day of the week, I rise early to pray and study the words of Christ--the scriptures--and continue my learning as I listen to the recent General Conference talks on my iPod while I walk to class. I look forward to attending religion classes three times a week, and at least once a week I serve and worship in the temple with my roommates. Keeping up this pattern of study and prayer gives me knowledge and power. In two months, I will become a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Through prayer and fasting, I've come to know that this great blessing is from God, and it is something He wants me to do. I I have been assigned to serve in another country for 18 months. I have never left the United States before, but I know this call is inspired. I have a great desire to go to a new land, learn a new language, and meet new people with whom I will share this gospel. I know that the most important choice in life is to accept and live the gospel. Doing so has brought me such happiness and comfort that I need to tell others about it.
