Hi I'm Victoria

I have grown spending lots of time at my grandfather's ranch. I love people, especially my family. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy sports and had dreamed of playing basketball at Tennessee. My Freshman year of high school, I made the Varsity basketball team and then totally blew my knee out. After two major surgeries and two years of physical therapy, I was blessed to be able to walk. During my Sophomore year I was asked to radio broadcast some of the high school basketball games. I found it to be a way to stay somewhat in the game and liked broadcasting. So I have now begun college and am working on becoming a sports broadcaster. While it is not exactly what I had planned for myself, I have been able to change directions. From a young age, I have worked as a tour guide at my grandfather's ranch. I enjoy meeting people and learning about different cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the same church that existed when Christ was upon the earth. It is His church and has been restored for us in these latter days. I know that my Heavenly Father lives and loves each one of us. He has given us a prophet, Thomas S. Monson, to guide us now, just as He had prophets to lead and guide the people in Old and New Testament times. I love to read the Book of Mormon and know that Christ appeared to the people in the Book of Mormon after He was crucified on the other side of the world. The gospel makes me happy and gives me answers to many of life's questions such as: Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? It provides the way for me to experience joy in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

While I was in high school, I went to the elementary school and helped students who had difficulty reading. It was very satisfying to read to and with the children. I have been the President of several of my Young Women classes. During the past two summers I have had the opportunity to participate in the Nauvoo pageant. While there I was able to portray, learn about, and teach others about the wonderful people who built up and left the city of Nauvoo. I taught visitors how to dance the dances of the 1800's and I taught children how to tie rags, construct whirly gigs, and make dolls. I have been a member of my ward choir for many years. As a Freshman in college, I was called to be a ward missionary. I have served as a nursery worker and love the little children. I am currently preparing to serve an 18 month mission and am so very happy to be able to serve the Lord.
