Hi I'm Päivi

I am Finnish and grew up in Finland. I study to be a nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I study nursing and I want to be a pediatric nurse. I love reading all kinds of books. I play piano and I really enjoy many different kinds of music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to this church. I always liked going to church when I was a child and as I grew older I started to develop my own testimony. Why am I in this church? Is this the true gospel on earth? . When I prayed about this and read the scriptures, went to church and really tried to open my mind for the spirit, I got really good feeling that this is good and right. As I have been studying more and always continued to do these things my testimony has grown. I know that we have a loving Heavenly father and Jesus Christ is our saviour and that they live. I know that when we open our minds and read the Book of Mormon and sincerely pray about it, we can know for ourselves that it is the word of God and this is He's gospel. I'm thankful that I have this knowledge. It brings great happiness to my life and assurity that our lives don't end when we die and we can be with our families forever and that we have someone who loves us watching over us always.

How I live my faith

I have worked in our branch with children and i have thought young girls. I enjoy working with them and learning from them. I also go visiting other sisters in our branch, which is also thought me a lot, and it is nice that we can learn from women all aged.
