Hi I'm Whitney

I am a 20 year old missionary in South Dakota. I'm the youngest of 6 children. I play the violin and rugby. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 20 year old that is serving a mission in Rapid City, South Dakota! Before my mission, I graduated with an Associates in Science from Dixie State University. I have played the violin since I was 5 and it is one of my biggest passions in life. I am also the youngest of 6 kids and absolutely love my entire family which includes 9 nieces and nephews. I have played almost every sport, but the ones I played in high school were soccer, cross country, basketball and rugby. The most important part of my life is the gospel and the happiness and comfort it brings to me everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel is simple to me. I have felt the special spirit, love and calmness when I am involved in it. Because of it I am truly happy. This happiness is not just a moment, but will last for eternity. It brings me happiness because of the hope it shares as well as the comfort that even though I may make mistakes I can someday become perfect and live with our Heavenly Father once again. After reading the Book of Mormon I truly know it is an inspired book and can answer any question or concern I may have. I love all the sweet men that are the Prophets and Apostles and know that they are inspired by our Heavenly Father and love each and every one of us. The gospel has made me the person I am today.

How I live my faith

I have been involved in this gospel since I was born and I wouldn't have it any other way. Right now I am serving as a full time missionary sharing my knowledge and joy with others currently in Bismarck, North Dakota. It's interesting looking back on my life and seeing the Lord's hand in even the most simple everyday things. I wouldn't be on a mission if I didn't KNOW that this church is true. I know that Jesus Christ is the Savior and that through Him and the Atonement He peformed I will be able to return to my Heavenly Father with joy one day. I want to share that happiness with everyone I meet!
