Hi I'm Odessa

Hi, my name is Odessa Bell, I was born in Rapid City, South Dakota and I am proud to say that I am a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am just a short, fun-sized, Mia maid in Young Womens and I love electronics, designing graphics on my computer and at school, I sort of "not really" know how to play the guitar, and I have a dog named Lily, she is a Saint Bernard, I have a Rag doll cat named Fritz, and 4 chinchillas named Smoky(FATTY), Snowball(evil or Poopy), Chandler( sweet), and Spaz and his name pretty much explains his personality. I love to skateboard, sing, computer things, genealogy with my Grandpa, and listen to music. Although it is hard to always follow the rules I still try and I occasionally make mistakes and sometimes I make HUGE mistakes. But, my parents help me through it. I love my parents

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I like the feeling that I get when the Holy Spirit confirms to me that what was said or what I learned is true and I didn't have to get baptised, it was my choice and no one ever said that I shouldn't or that I have to. I love the fact that I have free agency.

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to bring the spirit wherever I go but it doesn't always work out as planned. I enjoy going to YW especially on Birthday Sunday.

What is being a Mormon like?

Honestly, I think that being a Mormon is cool at times but it is really difficult for me as an individual to follow the rules and standards. But when i have Young Womens activities, I go into it saying "Dude, I am so bored" but I come out of it saying " Can I stay a little longer?" So I always end up having the time of my life.
