Hi I'm Ariane Frost

I am a native Californian. I'm an aspiring pastry chef. I'm preparing to serve a full time Mission in Madrid Spain.

About Me

I have a natural desire to be around others and to make people happy. Especially children, I have a special love for children and their sweet spirits. The most favorite jobs I've ever had involve kids! I’m so excited to have a future family of my own. Post mission I plan to attend a pastry and baking program to pursue my dreams. I love food and I love what good food and an inviting atmosphere can do for the soul. I love this incredible Earth we have been so blessed to live on. I truly am in awe whenever I am able to visit somewhere new. I couldn't be more grateful to spend 18 months in Spain serving those wonderful people in such an incredible place.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know with a surety that it's the truth. I went through a time in my life where I felt that the Gospel wasn't really for me. Thankfully it only took me a year of unhappiness to know what was missing. The principles that Mormons live and the things that we believe and are taught just make sense! The joy I feel when I practice what I preach is amazing. I have been without the blessings of living the Gospel and I know how that made me feel and I never want to live like that again. Being a Mormon gives me the comfort, joy, and clarity that one wont find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I choose to live my faith by example. I know that as a representative of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that I am always being watched by those around me. I try to bring basic principles of the Gospel in to my daily life and to let my “light shine.” I enjoy living the “Mormon lifestyle.” I feel blessed with all the doors that have been opened up to me as a direct result of how I choose to live my life; through faith.

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Ariane Frost
I've always found it strange that other faiths pay people to preach to them. I mean Christ didn't go around physically benefiting for his counselling seeking worldly treasures. Do you know how much wasted money would go into paying each person who had a calling or responsibility to teach? Lots i'm sure. It's a privilege to be called to teach, a blessing in the form of service. Personally that's not what I want my hard earned money to go towards( Funding a pastor living in a large house while i'm barely scraping by) . Not only is it putting tithing funds to better use ( building temples, funding missions, etc) but it also allows members to have opportunities to learn and grow and to also serve and bless other peoples lives.
