Hi I'm Deb

I'm an artist. I'm a student. I'm an athlete. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a junior studying food science at Brigham Young University, I'm also minoring in visual arts and chemistry. I take my time to study well for school so that one day I might be able to enter into a professional field of possibly pharmaceuticals. I love playing sports; some of my favorites include volleyball, track and field, ultimate frisbee, football, basketball, and dodge ball. I also have a passion as an artist. I enjoy drawing portraits and painting landscapes. Overall, I like participating in a variety of activities.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon makes me happy. I feel like I am doing what is right when I am living the principles I am taught.

How I live my faith

Living my faith includes, but also extends past, Sabbath-day observance. On Sundays I go to Church meetings with other members in my neighborhood. I participate in a small group choir, after church, where we sing beautiful arrangements of music about good values and Jesus Christ. I have the assignment to plan activities, once a week, for about 15 people in my church group. We do activities and share lessons about our faith. I also do personal study by reading scriptures and saying prayers.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Wards are divided by geographical area and member population. Wards can be as small as a couple of dormitory halls up to spanning cities. The geographical area size of a ward depends upon the concentration of Mormons. Wards usually consist of a couple hundred of people. Each ward has a bishop at the head. Stakes are made up of multiple wards, usually about a dozen. A stake president is at the head of a stake. A Branch functions almost the same as a ward, but they usually aren't as large as a ward. A branch president heads a branch. Show more Show less
