Hi I'm Liana

I am a college student studying English, political science, and theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I try to be a very hard-working student. School is always a priority for me. I also work as a media specialist making and editing videos. I love to play the flute, make jewelry,act, write, and go adventuring. I'm not great at cooking, longboarding, or playing the piano, but I also love to incorporate those in my day as much as possible. I absolutely love eating and trying new foods; I'm not afraid to try anything... unless they are insects. I hate spiders, bugs, blood, and I don't have a very high pain tolerance. I like to learn new things and like being good at them even more! I have never lost at a thumb war and I like some good competition when it comes to playing California speed. I enjoy board games, card games, and word games- I love to win, but always believe in playing fair.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. I chose to continue being a member of this church because when I live the principles that it teaches I feel good about myself and about my life. I find that when I do not live the principles that this church teaches, I feel lost, confused, and like I want to give up. This church answers my questions in a way that makes sense to me. When I am at church or reading the Book of Mormon, I feel comfort and peace, joy and clarity about my present life and my life to come. I am a Mormon because this church has ALL of the answers and EVERYTHING I need to continue to be happy. I am a Mormon because I find my purpose through this gospel and it makes me feel good in all I do.

How I live my faith

I most recently was involved in a ward for young single adults at my college. There, I was the music coordinator, which meant I selected hymns to sing on Sunday and organized someone to share their musical talents each week before our lesson. As a visiting teacher, I visited sisters around my block at least every few weeks and sat to talk with them and gave them gifts that I thought they might need or want. I go to the temple at least once a week and attend my church meetings every Sunday and other activities throughout the week. I think the way I live my faith the best, though, is by the small choices I make every day. I have come to realize that the tiniest decisions I make every moment of my life are how I live my faith; by choosing what to wear in the morning, what to eat for lunch, what movie to watch on the weekends, when to turn in my assignments, what to study, and who to spend time with. I live my faith by first thinking of Christ before making my decisions throughout the day.
