Hi I'm Heidi Morrill

I am a small person with many interests, I enjoy having fun and making people smile. I'm a Missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Heidi! I'm 20 years old and I am currently serving my mission in Utica, New York! I live in the "Mormon State" :) I am 4' 11" and the oldest of four. Two sisters and a brother. I also have a dog, Milo! I enjoy drawing and looking at other's work. I love picking up tips from my fellow artists and improving. I play the beautiful viola and have been playing it since I was 12 years old. I also play Softball and have played it since I was about 8, first base and outfield. I'm also a World of Warcraft nerd! For the Alliance! Reading fiction is something I love to do in my spare time; I love exploring new worlds! I love to smile and laugh and have fun. I love making others smile too! :) I plan on going to college when I get off my mission. What I'll go into is yet to be decided. It'll be something amazing though! But for now, I serve the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has always been Mormon, I grew up in the church, reading my little scriptures, going to church, going to week day activities. As I got older, I resented going to church. I struggled with my parents as they tried to get me to go, I would get angry and I would sit outside during class or I would walk home. It wasn't until my family was hit with one of our greatest trials that I got on my knees and pleaded to know if He was really there and if everything would be okay. Every day I prayed that I would be strong enough to make it through this time in my life. One day, my young women leaders invited me to church. We learned a lesson about how we are daughters of our Heavenly Father, He loves us and He knows what we're going through, He listens to our prayers and answers them. That lesson hit home. I knew I was looked after and I knew he was listening to my prayers every night. I have a firm testimony that God loves us and He will never let us go through something alone, He is always at our side. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Well, I'm serving my Lord in New York on a mission for a start :) Simply smiling is a great way to help others feel the love of Christ. Again, I enjoy smiling and making others smile! I love saying a simple hello to someone on the street or waving at people driving by. You wouldn't believe how that could help someone. When I receive a calling or responsability in the church, I do all I can to magnify it. I go above and beyond to do all I can to serve those around me. I strive to obey God's commandments and be someone He can truly be proud of. I do my best to follow my Savior's example and have charity for everyone around me. We're all God's children and He loves us all. Why shouldn't we love each other? :)
