Hi I'm Arianna

I'm a student, photographer, artist, blogger, dog-lover, adventure enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon above everything else!

About Me

My name is Arianna, I go by Ari these days though. I am currently a student at UVU studying psychology in hopes to become a therapist. I've gone through a lot in the 20 years I've been alive. Everything thing I've gone through has taught me that God is real, and that this church is true, and I cannot deny it. There have been times in the past that I have turned my back on God and on the gospel. There have been many times that I have gone astray and lost my way. I don't believe I would be here today, or be the same person I am today without this Gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ truly saves, and changes souls and hearts. It has changed me in only good ways, and I have witnessed it save and change others for the better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know God is real, I know that Christ is his son and that died for all mankind so that we can live with our Heavenly Father again in Heaven. I have felt the truth of the gospel seep into my bones and change my life for the better. I haven't always wanted to be Mormon, I went through a doubting and rebellious phase in my life were I questioned the church and everything I believed. This time in my life was very difficult for many reasons, and I soon realized that I was missing something, and I knew that it was the church and God, and after I realized this my testimony in the truth and clarity of the Gospel grew 110% within my heart and soul. I am Mormon because I love it, I love the community I have that will always be there for me, I love that I have so many opportunities to help others and to grow and learn as a person. Being Mormon is probably the best thing to ever happen to me, and I am so thankful for everything I have, and for the people in the Church that have reached out to me when I was in need. I know this church has blessed and strengthened my life and many other peoples lives. I hope I will be able to share my faith with others who are searching for the truth and for a higher power. :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the way I live my life. Its taken me awhile to truly convert myself to the Gospel, in many ways I call myself a convert even though I was raised in the church. I live my faith by keeping the commandments, by being kind to others, by trying my best to be as Christ like as possible each day. I love going to church, because it uplifts and renews my testimony. I live my faith by surrounding myself with people who will buoy me up, instead of bring me down. I try my best to pray everyday, and read my scriptures daily as well. I have a blog, and a video-blog, where I talk about my faith and my religion as often as I can. I love sharing Mormon messages, or Conference talks on Facebook, because they are inspiring and an easy way to feel better.
