Hi I'm Willow

I grew up in Oregon. I'm a student in Provo at BYU. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of 5 children. There are 4 of us girls, and a darling baby boy at the end who has Down Syndrome. Since his sisters are all at least 12 years older than him, he is very loved and gets a lot of attention. I love music and have been in many choirs. Most recently, I participated in BYU Women's Chorus. In my family, we play a variety of instruments. At least one of us has played the piano, harp, flute, guitar, ukulele, trumpet, harmonica, recorder, and pan flute. I am a student at BYU who loves to be spontaneous. I am about to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Central America.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up reading the Book of Mormon with my family and praying daily. It was just a way of life which I accepted. Growing up in the Church, I learned about Joseph Smith and the prophets and have always believed it. Although I grew up this way, I also learned for myself that the Book of Mormon was true by reading it myself. The Book of Mormon promises that if you pray and ask sincerely if it is true, you will receive an answer. The Spirit also can testify that Joseph Smith was a true prophet called of God. He could not have just invented this Church. He was led by the Lord to reestablish His church here. It is the same church that was around when Christ was on the Earth two thousand years ago. I know that this church is true and that it is led by a prophet of God.

How I live my faith

I go to church every week where I get to teach the 4 and 5-year-olds. We teach them lessons and play with them. I have also been involved in music in my church and was in a church choir composed of teens in my area while I was in high school. We would visit our churches and sing for the meetings, sharing our testimonies through music. While I was in college, I got to plan weekly activities with a small group of other students in my apartment complex . I read my scriptures daily by myself and with my family.
