Hi I'm Aria

"I grew up in California and Utah. I played college softball. I'm a Mormon."

About Me

Hello! My name is Aria and I love life! I try my best to find happiness in each day. I played college softball and am now preparing for a mission. My hobbies? I really have too many to name like most of us, but maybe I'll say just a few things. I am a movie fanatic, I love the movies (total nerd too)! I love to garden, because I love flowers. I am seriously considering, becoming a florist or something with design. I think history is fascinating, sometimes I wish I could just go exploring like Indiana Jones. The last thing I'll say is I really enjoy being around people, they give me energy. Life is wonderful and I love that I have the ability to make it that way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that this gospel brings you true and everlasting happiness. I have been lost in my life at times, and I didn't know what to do, where to go, or who I wanted to be. But the moment I sincerely and earnestly strived to live and learn this gospel, I found peace and clarity. I know why I am here, where I am going, and who I am. This Church has helped me see that I am a daughter of God and is helping me prepare to see my Savior again. I know that He lives, and that He loves us. This gospel was restored to this earth because of that very fact. Being a Mormon has blessed me more than anything, and I am so grateful to know that.

How I live my faith

I try to do my best at living my faith, by taking it one day at a time. I think most things in life are best done by taking it one step at a time while keeping the end goal in mind. I currently have no calling in the church, however I am preparing to become a missionary. In doing so I am rereading the Book of Mormon and studying other books, along with praying everyday in order to get ready for that opportunity to teach others about the gospel. I love attending church. The principles and lessons that are taught help me become better. I am uplifted by those around me, and I do my best to uplift others as well. I try my best to be a good example, especially to the youth. I am close to many of the girls and I love them dearly. I hope I set a good example, especially in the way I live my faith.

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in Heavenly Father, but to become closer to him we need to first believe and trust in Jesus Christ. He knows our hearts and has given His life so that we might be able to return to live with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
