Hi I'm Francesca

I'm a full-time missionary serving in Rome, Italy!

About Me

I am the oldest child out of 5 girls. I love to read, dance, play piano, and work on Family History. I graduated from Bowie High school. (Go Vols!) I'm currently a student at BYU and I'm studying English and Spanish. I love to write! I have been called to serve as a missionary in Rome, Italy where I'll be teaching in Italian! I love to watch Doctor Who, and I have a sick obsession with bacon. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the message of the gospel. We were sent here to be happy, I truly believe that. I know that Christ was sent here to be our example. I am so grateful for the sacrifice He made for me. I I know that Jesus Christ lives. I know that He atoned for my sins because He loves me and desperately wants me to see our Heavenly Father again. I know that God has a special plan for each of us, and that if we’re willing to just trust Him things will work out for us. I know that I have a Heavenly Mother who is watching over me and hears my pleas for comfort. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true account of the people in the Americas. I know that Christ visited and taught them. I know that by sincere prayer others can know this truth as well. I know that Joseph Smith saw God, Christ, and many heavenly messengers. I know that this is Christ’s true church on the earth. I know that when Christ comes again, I will most definitely be on His side, defending the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day! As a missionary for the Church, I get the wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with others every day. I live my faith by living up to the missionary standards, studying the scriptures, and staying in constant communication with my Heavenly Father through prayer. Previously, I served as a ward missionary and taught the Gospel Essentials class on Sundays. I was very involved with the youth, since my sisters are still in the program. I've also taught the 10 year old Primary class- they're amazing kids!
