Hi I'm Deanna Behr

I'm a very happy person and I have a great passion for life, so I smile alot.

About Me

I love to sing and be silly. Laughing is my favourite exercise. I've always loved the outdoors, and I hope to travel the world someday. I'm really interested in being involved in humanitarian services abroad and sharing myself, my beliefs and my love with all of God's children.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because somewhere deep inside me I know its where I belong. I know that I have close to nothing without this gospel. When I am living the way I've been taught to and being true to myself I am my happiest. I have such a strong desire to do good and progress as a human being. The church has given me a hope in myself despite my many flaws. It gives me the compassion and love for people and the desire to be strong and happy through life. I've experienced life without the church and it really isn't the life I want to lead. The church has given me a confidence that I couldn't have achieved on my own. I've felt the unmistakable love of my Heavenly Father and my saviour Jesus Christ. They bear me up, even when I don't feel worth it and I'm at my lowest. If there is one thing my church has taught me is that I'm always worth it, I'm never not loved, and that there is always support waiting to for me when I need it. I'm a Mormon because I'm taught that what I have to give is important and that I have a greater capacity for changing this world than I could have ever imagined.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving people. It is very important to me to be friends with whoever I can and be accepting of all people whatever their circumstances. I try my best to make others feel welcome and happy in my presence and among my friends and family. One of God's greatest commandments is to love his children, and that's what I've been taught to do since I was a small child, is to be loving and kind to everyone. If nothing else I live my faith by love, which is why Im showing my faith by serving as a missionary in the Tampa Florida Mission. I've come to know by experience that there is no greater way to show love than to help them know Jesus Christ and follow his teachings. That is the only way to be truly happy.
