Hi I'm Angela

I'm a student, a sister, a friend, I want to be a teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love adventure, outdoors, animals, sports, and music. I enjoy learning and trying new things and I love meeting new people. I am a college student and I want to become a 7th grade teacher and basketball or volleyball coach. During summers I plan on creating an outdoor learning center, where troubled kids can come enjoy being outside and release some of their life problems. Everyone asks me why I want to teach 7th grade. I want to because that is the age that they are starting to decide who they are. That's the age that they need someone to really look up to and someone to be there for them. I want to be that person, so that I can help them develop confidence in who they are.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. Jesus Christ oversees this church because it is his. I know this because I've felt the truth of it. I prayed to God and his holy spirit bore witness to me that it is true. Every time I go to church, every time I read my scriptures, every time I pray, and every time I talk about my religion I feel peace. I feel love, and a sincere desire to be the best person I can be. This feeling of peace and love is the holy ghost, which testifies of truth. I know this is the true church upon the earth. I know that I have a Heavenly Father that loves me and all his children here upon the earth. I know that he answers prayers and he truly knows and understands me. I know my Savior, Jesus Christ died for me and now lives for me. I believe in life after death and I hope to live a life in which I can live with my Savior and my Heavenly Father again. This is my testimony and this is why I am a Mormon. I know that if any of us lack wisdom or if any of us wants to find purpose, to find truth or to find peace all we have to do is ask God in prayer. He answers prayers and he is just waiting for us to turn to him so he can help us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living for others. Jesus Christ is the ultimate example and I try to live a life that reflects him. In my church we have volunteer assignments or callings. I am serving as a leader of the women. I visit them, befriend, them and help everyone feel included. I look for anyone that needs help financially, emotionally, or physically, then I find ways to help them. Most of all I try to bring each person closer to Jesus Christ. I can only help or heal so much... but Jesus can help them perfectly. He knows each person better than they know themselves and if I turn them to him I know everything will work out for the best. My faith is about charity - the pure love of Jesus Christ. I love the people around me and I try to serve them as Christ would serve them.
