Hi I'm Precia

I grew up in Idaho. I love to dance and sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have done ballet for most of my life, and I have taught it for a few years as well. I also did choir for six years and took private voice lessons. As you can tell, I love music and the performing arts. I also enjoy tennis, hiking, volleyball, and being active. I am a college student studying Teaching English as a Second Language, and I love it! I love people more than anything, so I really enjoy being with friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have sought and received my own, personal witness that this Church is true. This witness has come many times to me as I have participated in this Church, as I have prayed, as I have read the scriptures, and as I have lived in accordance with the teachings of this Church. This witness is something eternal, something deeper and more satisfying than any other emotion or feeling. It is sure and clear, and I know that it comes from the Holy Spirit. Most significantly, though, I have received many witnesses--the most notable being when I read the Book of Mormon for myself, that JESUS IS THE CHRIST, The Savior of all mankind. I know that this is His true Church. I can't deny this witness, and I have felt and received COUNTLESS blessings from joining and continuing in this Church.

How I live my faith

Being Mormon is a lifestyle, not just a Sunday activity. I participate as part of this Church in various ways. One of these ways is going to Church activities and getting to know other people. Sometimes those activities are service-oriented, spiritually-oriented, or just a way to strengthen relationships with other people. I attend Church every Sunday, and have held various callings (assignments) there. I love to teach people things that are important to me, so my favorite calling was being a Sunday School teacher for a class from the young adult congregation. One of the most significant ways I live my faith, however, is not just in attendance of activities and participation in assignments, but it is a personal pattern of living that includes regular scripture study, frequent prayer, and a commitment to living principles that I know to be true. It includes being honest and compassionate, reaching out to others, being virtuous, and having integrity. It means being willing to stand alone for what I know is right, if need be, because my commitment to Christ is much more important than my commitment to popularity.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Precia
Try it out and pray about it! Live the commandments you are taught, and see what feelings and what good comes to your life when you do. Also, ask God to know. He cares about each of His children and is willing and waiting to give answers to those who seek them. Pray to Him to know if what you are taught is true. As you do your part to have a sincere heart and be an honest seeker of truth, being willing to receive whatever the answer will be, and living in such a way to be able to feel the impressions from the Holy Ghost (so living the commandments), He WILL reveal the truth to you. He will do it in His own time and His own way, so you must be patient. But I promise that He will. God is a god of mercy and love. He desires for ALL of His children to return to Him (but of course, we each have our choice), so if this is the way back to Him, He will show that to you. Trust the feelings in your heart that come from the Holy Ghost. There is nothing as powerful and as sweet as the feelings of the Holy Ghost. Have faith that God can and will answer you, and have faith in the answer you receive. Check out Chapter 32 in Alma in the Book of Mormon to read more about trying it out and gaining your own witness! Show more Show less

Are Mormons Christians?

Precia
This is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. His name is in our title, so yes, we are Christians, in that we believe very strongly in Jesus Christ. He is the core of all of the doctrine and teachings in the Church. Everything we do and everything we teach in this Church comes back to Christ because it is through Him that we can receive salvation. Show more Show less
