Hi I'm Demi

I'm from California, a returned missionary, longboarder, senior in college, P.E. Intern, hopefully a surfer one day, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Demi. Hobbies that I have are sports, eating, dancing, hiking, adventuring, longboarding, and blogging. I went to BYU-I for two years as a exercise physiology major. I love to watch movies, read books and blog as well. I also love to spend time out doors playing sports, skating, going to the beach, hiking, having bon fires and camping as well.I love amusement parks! Six Flags is my favorite park by far! I really love to sing, dance and listen to music as well. There are so many things I want to do in this life which include traveling and experiencing different food, music and culture. My main goal in life is to find true happiness.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because I know that this gospel is true. There have been times in my life where I have had a deep depression and just really wanted to give up on life, and it was this gospel, this knowledge of knowing that god loves me and accepts me for who I am, no matter what past mistakes I have made in my life that got me through it. Its true because no matter what day it is, or what situation i'm going through, I know that my heavenly father will take care of me. I know that Jesus Christ gave his life for me and that my Heavenly Father loves me because I have felt his forgiveness, comfort and love. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet because he too was once like me wondering what was true and he felt the love of the Savior and our Father in heaven as well. I know this is true because I have prayed about it, and was confirmed with a peace that was so comforting that I didn't have to question it. My Father speaks to me through feelings, the way I know this is through experience. For example, I'm a runner and after a good long run, my body feels so relaxed and my mind is empty. Its like I'm in a trans you can say, and I love this feeling because it's such as relaxing and comforting feeling. When I prayed asking the lord if this is a true church, I waited, waited for a really long time that night. I remember I was expecting something dramatic like a huge pillar of light or singing angels, or a dream but nothing came. I decided to just try again the next day but for some weird reason I couldn't sleep, it wasn't an anxious kind of sleep either. It was just a calm and peaceful feeling the same feeling after a long run, and I felt comforted and knew that was my heavenly father reassuring me that this was and is the truth. I know that this is true, because my Heavenly Father has told me, I know he wants what is best for me, and I know that the only way to feel that complete peace in life is through this church which is full of his love for us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to practice loving everyone, even though at times it may be difficult, everyone in this life and in this world deserves to be loved. When given an opportunity to serve, I do my best to serve. Also just by doing three simple things: pray to God, read the scriptures, and attend church services every sunday, doing those three improve my days.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

mormon missionaries proselyte, because if we dont open our mouths and take every opportunity to talk to people we wont ever know who might find interest in learning more or maybe someday wanting to be apart of the church. Show more Show less
