Hi I'm Bethany

I love God! I love Jesus Christ! And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

In my family, I have two younger sisters and my mom and dad. We like to play card games and watch movies together. I am working on getting my degree in psychology and early childhood development. I want to work with kids with mental disabilities. I love those kids! They are so great, and some of God's best souls! I love to play the piano and also sing to the radio in the car. My weakness is ice cream--any flavor except vanilla. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon. I always went to church with my family because it was the right thing to do. I always liked going to church. But I really gained a testimony of it when I was 13. I started praying every night and reading my scriptures more often. When I prayed, I knew that God was there. I knew He was an actual being listening to me and the concerns of my 7th grade life. That's when I started to find out for myself through the experiences I had that God was my Heavenly Father, who knew me before this life. I know God loves me very much, as He does all us. I know that the Book of Mormon holds the true words of God written by ancient prophets. I've had countless experiences where the Book of Mormon answered my questions. This gospel is what leads and guides my life today--the teachings and words of Jesus Christ and His example. I know that Jesus Christ performed the Atonement, which means that He suffered for every single sin, heartache, and sorrow that each of us will ever experience in our lives. He loves us so much that He suffered that and then died upon the cross so that He could triumph over death. After three days, Christ rose again. Christ lives today. He watches over us and loves us. I love God and Jesus Christ because they are my family. I know God is my Eternal Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, is my Brother. I know without a doubt that this gospel is true. I want to share it with the whole entire world because of the great happiness and guidance it brings me.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am serving as a full-time missionary. All day, each day for a year and a half, I share the teachings of Jesus Christ and help people strengthen their faith in Him. I love it! It is definitely a wonderful experience to sacrifice ALL of my time and energy to the Lord. And I do it because I love the Lord! I also do it because this church has brought me so much joy and direction and answers that I want to share it with everyone I meet!
