Hi I'm Barbara

I LOVE my family. I am a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I so happy! I am currently serving a mission in the NOM (Nebraska Omaha Mission) and it is such a great experience! I have loved being able to get to know new people and help them realize their purpose in life. It's amazing to see these individuals experience a change of heart and I am so privileged to get to serve them. My family is awesome! All of my family members are some of my closest friends and I am so blessed to be apart of the family I am in. My parents have always made sure to teach my siblings and I that we are children of God and that He loves us and they love us. Family is truly a gift from God and I am grateful that I can be with my family for eternity!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Mormon church, but I think that everyone has a conversion story...even if they have grown up in the church all their lives. Mine isn't, too, miraculous, but I know for myself that this church is true. Growing up I often questioned why I had to abide by so many rules and why my parents wanted me to go to church. I had many friends who weren't members and they were good people, so why couldn't I do what they were doing? I finally decided to know for myself. As I read the Book of Mormon and sought this truth for myself, I found my answer. I know that this church is true and that the Book of Mormon is the truest book written on the earth. It was specifically written for each one of us. I have found so many answers to questions that I have had through the Book of Mormon. It is amazing to know that my Heavenly Father knows me and answers me in a way that is most beneficial. I have felt in my heart that these things are true. I cannot deny what I have come to know. I know that everyone has the ability to find out for themselves. As you read, ponder, and pray with an open heart and are willing to listen, the Holy Ghost will answer you in a way that you will recognize the truth of these things.

How I live my faith

I have often asked myself the question: "Do I live in a way that people who don't know about Christ will want to know Him because they know me?" There are many times when I have thought to just go with the flow, but I know that if I just sat back and followed the current I would not be where I am today. It's easy to reflect on what life could be if I didn't live by my standards, but I know that it is because of the high standards that I hold that I can stand tall and know that I am a daughter of God...and I am not ashamed of it.
