Hi I'm Naomi

I am 20 years old, sophomore in college, I am going on a mission to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and i'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a sophomore in college and still unsure on what to study. I played lacrosse for 6 years and wish I continued to play. I love being around people and enjoy talking and getting to know peoples stories. I love making jewelry and other crafts. I don't buy anything full price so you could say I'm a thrifter. My favorite places to shop are of course the DI and the Good Will. My family and especially my siblings are my best friends. I wouldn't choose to spend my time with anyone else.

Why I am a Mormon

My love for my church and religion comes fully from the joy and love I feel from it. I know that it is true. I cannot deny the peace and guidance I feel from reading the scriptures. They direct me in this crazy world. I know that the Lord atoned for my sins and through him I can be whole through repentance. The atonement was not for just major sins but for when i'm feeling down or stress. He knows all and is there when I need him. This is the church that built upon Christ. It is run by the modern latter-day prophet that leads and guides this church. I know with all my heart that by keeping the commandments and living what I believe that I am an example for others and I can influence and bring people to the gospel that brings so much comfort to me.

How I live my faith

It's hard to put into words 'how I live my faith' without actions or showing someone. If I were to describe how I do live my faith I would say that attending all my church meetings and fulfilling all my church callings. I whole handily believe in little acts of kindness also, by extending love and support to those around you and in your community. This can uplift and bring not only them but yourself closer to Christ.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Missions are all voluntary and not required for women. As a 20 year old girl, it is not required of me to serve a mission. I have always had to the strong desire to serve and bring others to the peace and comfort I feel from the gospel. I have a testimony that I want to share and serve others. I have gotten a strong conformation that serving a mission right now is what the Lord would have me do. That is why I have chosen to serve a misison. Show more Show less
