Hi I'm Ivy D.

I'm from New York. I will be serving as a missionary in Guatemala for 18 months starting August 7. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freshman in college and love it! I love spending time with my family and friends. I love listening to music and play the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, my family went to Church together every Sunday and was baptized when I was 8 years old. Although my parents and many of my extended family are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, that isn't why I am a member, too. I am a member of the Church because I know that the teachings are true. I have both read and prayed about the Book of Mormon and know that the teachings in it are true. I know that there is a living prophet on this Earth, just like in Biblical times. I know that God is our Heavenly Father and that He does answer our prayers.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day by doing the things that I believe will help me come to know God and Jesus Christ better. I read the Book of Mormon each day and try to apply what I learned from my reading into my life. I pray throughout the day to thank my Heavenly Father for the numerous blessings that I have been given and turn to Him for comfort, strength, and guidance.
