Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but both my parents were inactive. I was lucky enough that my dad still supported the Church and brought us to church services and other activities. I had a wonderful ward who took me and my siblings under their wings and taught us gospel principles. It wasn't until I left for college that my testimony of this Church soared. I was able to learn many things about myself and where I stand with my conviction. I am now serving a full time mission for the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I'll be serving for 18 months in the Philippines Baguio Mission. I'm a Mormon, because I choose to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I was blessed with the opportunity to attend a university where I was surrounded by people who believe in the exact same thing as I do, and I am uplifted constantly because of it.
