Hi I'm Conner

I am 19 years old. I'm a girl (don't let the name fool you). I am serving a mission in Columbus, Ohio. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Two of my favorite things are photography and writing. I've recently taken up blogging. I grew up in New Mexico; but moved to Idaho my Junior year of high school. I graduated in May of 2014 and attended a semester of college in Logan Utah (which I loved!). I am currently serving as a sister missionary for the LDS church in the Columbus, Ohio Mission! When I come home, I plan to return to college and get my degree in Communication Studies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. Growing up, it was just a way of life for me. Then in my early teens I decided that maybe I didn't want to do all the things Mormons are suppose to do. I rebelled a little against my parents and my church leaders. One summer, I was challenged to read the entire Book of Mormon. As I did, my heart began to change. I felt the love of my Heavenly Father all around me and began to recognize His hand in my life. All the sudden, I wanted to share my feelings with everyone. It was like a flame had ignited within my soul and I changed. I began to live all the standards of the Church again and found that I was much happier. I had better friends, a better relationship with my family members and a better attitude. Since then, I've continued to grow in the gospel and to share it with my friends. It has brought me more happiness than anything else!

How I live my faith

I love to share my testimony with others through social media! I am always posting on Instgram and Facebook about my faith and how the church has blessed my life. It is an easy way to let others know who I am and what I believe in! I am also currently serving as a Mormon Missionary. Each day I get to go out and share with people the Message of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ; which is that Christ's church has been restored upon the earth and that through Jesus Christ we can be forgiven of sin, healed of pains and sorrows, and transformed into His disciples if we will follow His example and commandments!

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

A missionary's purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ. When we come to someone's home, we come with the intention of sharing a message that will help bring those we visit closer to God and to the Savior. We share messages about the Restoration of Christ's Church, God's Plan for us, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We also share special commandments that have been revealed to us by God's chosen prophets on the earth today. As we share these messages, we seek to help others gain an understanding of how they can come closer to Jesus Christ and how following His ways will allow them to find joy and happiness in their lives.
