Hi I'm Lia

I'm your average, everyday teen: I jump rope. I'm a singer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am on a competitive jump rope team called the Claim Jumpers, which has been around for 3 years now. We are involved in the American Heart Association's Jump Rope for Heart program that raises money for kids who have heart diseases. It is a great program that helps kids see how they can help other kids who are sick. I also sing. I love doing it, too! I am my ward and school choirs. I also made the Middle School Honor Choir, which we had to try out for. Music is my passion. I love it! My family is an important part of my life as well. I am the oldest of four kids who have two loving parents. I am blessed to be in this family. They have such sweet personalities that treat me so kindly and so well. We are so fortunate to have the gospel in our home.

Why I am a Mormon

I was "Born in the Covenant", and I am grateful for that. I don't know if I would have been able or even willing to be a part of this Church if my grandparents hadn't joined the Church when they were younger. I love this Church so much. I am so glad that I have been able to nurture a testimony that it is the only true Church on Earth today. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, and my Father in Heaven live and that they love me very much. I know that I can live with my family eternally after we die and are resurrected. I am grateful for that promise that was given through the sealing power in the temple. I am so thankful for the chance that I have each week to renew my baptismal covenant with God and for His willingness to forgive me for my many sins. I am thankful that Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and Savior, was willing to die for me and to go through the Atonement so that I can live with Him again. I love the truthfulness of the gospel, and for the knowledge that I have of it. I hope that this truth reaches everyone so that they, too, can be able to return to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again.

How I live my faith

I served in my 12-13 year old Class Presidency for almost two years in the Young Women program. I am currently the Mia Maid (14-15) Class President. Young Women is an amazing program where I feel so safe an secure around my fellow Young Women and our leaders. I love being in the program, especially because I perform service more than I would have done had the program not been around. I look for an opportunity every day to help and serve someone else so that I may become a better person.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

As it says in Moroni 10:5, "...by the power of the Holy Ghost, ye may know the truth of all things." So, Pray fervently to have this confirming Spirit. A peaceful feeling might come, and this is the Spirit acknowledging the truth of the Gospel. Show more Show less
