Hi I'm Hillary

I play collegiate rugby. I will soon be going on an LDS mission to the Philippines, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Hillary. My passions include music, rugby, photography, and life! I love learning, and trying new things. I'm working toward being an R.N. and I will continue to go to school when I come home from my mission to the Philippines. I love experiencing new things and learning about different cultures. I love people! I especially love hearing peoples' stories and their views on life. I've been a member of this church my entire life, and am so eternally grateful. This church brings so many blessing into my life, and gives me so many opportunities that I know that I would not get any other way.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because through this gospel, I know exactly who I am, I better understand why I am on this earth, and what my purpose is. I know that I am a daughter of God. And because of this knowledge, I have confidence to be myself in a world that tells me that I'm not good enough, or pretty enough, or skinny enough, or smart enough. I know that I have gifts and talents that make me matter to the Lord. He loves me with an infinite love. He knows me, and he knows my heart. I'm so thankful that I was able to grow up knowing that I am a child of God.

How I live my faith

Right not I am preparing to be a full time missionary. I don't have a current calling in my ward right now, but soon I will be on my mission where I will have the opportunity to spread the word of God and help people to know about the love that Heavenly Father has for them. I love this gospel because there is a place for everyone. Everyone has the opportunity to grow and learn more and more about the church everyday. I love reading and studying the scriptures, as it helps me learn and make connections about the gospel that maybe I never realized before. All of life's hard questions can be answered through this religion. I absolutely LOVE that!

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We believe that God is the father of our spirits. And as His children, he loves us and wants us to be as happy as we can possibly be. I believe that Heavenly father has a plan for ME. And I was sent to this earth in this time, to this place, for a specific reason. I know that He is merciful, just, loving, kind, perfect, and all knowing. He knows all of his children, and still has time to be concerned about me, listen to my prayers and answer my questions. Show more Show less
