Hi I'm April

I'm a student at a University. I love getting to know different kinds of people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Growing up in a big family was fun. Although I admit, I was excited to get away for a least a few months at a time to be going to school. I've loved getting to know people that come from all over the world to study and further shape their future. Some things that I've enjoyed the most at school so far are: being in the orchestra, going to various outdoors activities, and learning how to work better with people. I have gotten to have a lot of different roommates throughout the semesters. Though sometimes there has been challenges with conflict, there has been good and memorable experiences with all of them. Weather at school or home, I like to get out and do things with others that benefit everyone.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because, I've learned through reading the scriptures and praying to my Father in Heaven that Christ's church has been restored to the earth in these days from his time by a prophet through the priesthood. When I feel God's love, I know that there is no imitation of feeling or anything else that feels like it. His spirit is strong and fills you with a better feeling. Conversion doesn't just happen once. I become converted on a daily basis to new things I learn in the gospel or to others that I have forgotten. I know that the teachings of Jesus are true from living them. When I live in a manner that reflects Christ's character I'm happy and know that that is the way to live. Whenever I have a question or am confused of how I should be living I search for the answer in scripture and think about what I can do and act on it. I know that when I pray for further direction that I must do things to find the answers and that He will let me know when should be doing something better or different. I know that in order to find something I must search for it diligently and prayerfully, and that it will come to me in time. Things often come though through unexpected means and not in your own timing. I'm a Mormon because, I know my Father in Heaven loves me and when I follow him, I know that the things I do in his will are right and will bring my family happiness.

How I live my faith

I enjoy going to visit and spend time with others to see how they are doing. It's good to see others progress. Whenever I have the opportunity to teach a lessen at church, I sometimes get a little nervous, but enjoy being able to learn so much from preparing for it, and from others insights during the lesson. In life, I try to always see the big picture of things and to remember to be patient with others and myself. At some times it's hard not to let things get you down, but I know that when you seek good you'll find it.
