Hi I'm Colette

I love to have fun and laugh, I eat ketchup on almost everything, I love the summertime and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the great land of Utah! I have 3 other siblings who i love to death, they are my best friends! I love being outside and enjoying the fresh air. I like to play all kinds of sports even if I'm not good at them. I enjoy watching movies, playing games, helium balloons, and knitting. I went to school at Southern Utah University and studied elementary education, I plan to be a kindergarten teacher. I love to smile, laugh and just have a good time, being around the people I love brings me the greatest joy. I love serving others and seeing the happiness it brings to them. My weakness is ice cream, any day anytime.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love living this gospel. It has brought so much joy and many blessings to my life. I was born into the church and so I've known it my entire life. I don't know what my life would be like without it. I've had many trials throughout my life and the only way I've been able to make it through those trials is with the power of prayer and support from my loving family and friends. I pray to my Heavenly Father every day and i know that he helps me through this hard difficult life. I love feeling the holy ghost and my Father's love for me. I love reading the Book of Mormon because it brings me comfort and peace. When i read the stories I can relate it to my own life and receive answers. Knowing that I am a daughter of God helps me get through times when i don't feel like I am good enough or when things of the world become overpowering to my self esteem. It gives me the reassurance that it doesn't matter what the world thinks of me, it only matters what my Heavenly Father thinks. I am a Mormon because I know this church is true and having the true gospel of Jesus Christ in my life is the only way I can have true and lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

Currently I am a missionary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and I serve people every single day. I have the chance to teach people about Jesus Christ and how much he loves every single one of us. I live my faith by being an example to those around me. I try to do my best every single day by treating everyone with love and serving every chance I get. I pray to my Heavenly Father every day and He helps me endure the trials I face and to come out even stronger.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Mormons believe families can be together forever by being sealed in the temple. Family is the central unit to God's plan. With families we endure hard trials, love each other and help build each other up through sorrows and tough times. Having a loving family here on earth is the greatest proof that our Heavenly Father loves us. Show more Show less
