Hi I'm Clara Dunn

I'm a dancer, photographer, and a sister missionary who grew up in Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I attended BYU-Idaho for 2 years, studying dance and photography. I love to be active and take pictures of practically any and everything. I also love to dance whenever I get the chance, it's a great way to express who I am and what I'm feeling. As of July 2013 I became a sister missionary and was originally called to the Brazil Curitiba South Mission, but am waiting for my visa and have been reassigned to the Ohio Cincinnati Mission! I have truly learned to trust in my Heavenly Father and the plan He has for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised into this church and have therefore been living it my whole life. Although, up until my first year of college, I was living off "borrowed light." Meaning instead of having a true testimony for myself, I was going off what other people would say. Then I had a change of heart and found out for myself that this gospel provides me with happiness, truth, and gives me a light that nothing else could. I found out for myself that this gospel is true and is right, and therefore grew my own testimony. Now I am able to share what I believe so that others can "borrow" my light until they too find out for themselves the truthfulness of this gospel. I believe full heartedly of what this church teaches that I have decided to dedicate 18 months of my life, where I will put every thing on hold and teach the people in the Cincinnati area and, hopefully, in Brasil. I am a Mormon because I know in my heart that it is true, because it brings peace, happiness, and understanding to my life.

How I live my faith

I strive to always live my faith. Faith leads to action. Faith in Christ leads me to become more like Him in my thoughts, words and actions. Faith in God leads me to pray to Him and to trust in Him. Faith to live in the world and not of the world leads me to make good choices and remember my divine nature. Faith in the gospel leads me to live a better live. I constantly live my faith and let it lead me to grow closer to my Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ.
