Hi I'm Olivia

I grew up in Sunny St. George, I love Diet Coke, I am a missionary in the Jacksonville Florida Mission, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and enjoyed being surrounded by family and friends. In High School I loved being as involved as I could. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet so many different people. I realized how much I loved being creative and found myself picking up photography. When I was a Junior I started taking pictures just for fun, but eventually started doing it to pay for College. Now I love doing anything that gets my creative juices rolling! I went off to College but quickly realized I needed to do something different. After a lot of prayer I received the answer that I needed to go on a mission! Now, I am serving as a full-time missionary in Florida!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because it makes me so happy! I have prayed to know if this was truly Christ's Church on the earth, and I know that it is. I have been so blessed in my life and I want others to feel the same joy that I have from being a member of his church. I have witnessed how the gospel can change lives and help us to grow closer to our Heavenly Father. All I have ever wanted in life was to make a difference and living the gospel helps me feel successful in that.

How I live my faith

There are many things I LOVE about being a Mormon, but one that stands out to me is the opportunity I have to LIVE the gospel. Because nobody is paid, the members of the congregation get to participate in church service by teaching classes, holding activities for the youth, or giving talks to the congregation. I have been able to teach the young children in Primary, go to many girls camps, and get involved so many service projects because I am a Mormon. I also live my faith by teaching the gospel every day and being obedient to Gods commandments.
