Hi I'm Francesca

American. Returned Missionary. Italian. Student. Friend. Daughter. Sister. Aunt. Mormon.Wife.

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University Idaho. My end goal is to be a mom. I played volleyball in high school, it is one of my ways to relieve stress. Along side that, I love playing piano. I've recently picked up running. My family loves to see the world and visit new places, but our favorite place in the world is our home in Utah. I served as missionary in Milan, Italy from 2013-2014. The two things I love the most in this world are my covenants from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and my family. My husband and I were married in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple in August 2015. Each day is an adventure in our life. We seek to serve, to play and to love!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter Day Saint because I feel safe within all the Church has to offer. Everything within the Gospel of Jesus Christ is governed by God himself. There is peace in that fact. The gospel is perfect, the people may not be, but the gospel is. I have found when I'm in the darkest of places, literally and figuratively, that when I pray to my Father in Heaven and rely on my brother Jesus Christ I find peace, safety and a surety that I will be okay. The fully restored gospel brings that to me. When I am ill I can rely on the restored priesthood to heal me according to my faith. My relationship with my Father is so sacred and tangible that no one can take it from me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by showing my dedication to Christ. I follow Church guidelines, I am modest in my clothing and language. I live by the saying from Saint Francesco Di Assisi, "Always preach the gospel, if necessary use words."

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

We as Latter Day Saints see every single person that walks or has walked on this earth as a son or daughter of our beloved Father in Heaven. Because of this we all see each other as brothers and sisters. When a fellow brother or sister is in need of aid we come in haste to help carry their burden. It doesn't matter their ethnicity, gender, religion or race, but rather their spirit which is of our Heavenly Father. We help all God's children no matter what. Show more Show less
