Hi I'm Beth

I grew up in Tampa, Florida. I am currently serving a mission in Boise, Idaho!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Boise, Idaho and I LOVE it!! I love waking up every morning and knowing that the Lord will guide me to who I need to see that day. I have seen hearts change and miracles occur because of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Everything I do and say reflect Him and I plan on always being His disciple!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I grew up as a Mormon, I made the choice to live this lifestyle because of how it makes me feel. I am happier and more confident when I am living in accordance with God's commandments. The things that I avoid as a member of this church protect me in my daily life from physical and spiritual harm. When I read the Bible and especially The Book of Mormon, I feel the love of my Savior, Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father. Sometimes what He asks us to do is hard because it is unpopular or even strange to society, but Heavenly Father wants me and all of us to learn about Him and to grow closer to Him, and prayer and scripture study will help us to do that. I have had personal experiences where I can feel Christ healing me, teaching me, and guiding me through the Holy Spirit. I testify that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is true and if we come to Him and let Him change us, we can reach our potential and have clarity in a world of chaos.

How I live my faith

I have tried to live my faith by being an example to those around me who are memebers of the Mormon church and to those who are not. I strive to align my life with the will of God and do good things that help others in their journey through life. Most importantly I live my faith by loving others. No one is perfect in this life, and everyone has their struggles. I try to be kind to everyone and love them as Christ would, because no matter what our differences are, we are all children of God and deserve to be treated as such.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

For young women in the church a mission is not required. I have chosen to serve a mission because I know that the atonement Christ performed for all mankind can heal us and can change us. I am currently serving a mission in Boise, Idaho and every day I feel the love of God as I serve others and help them understand who they are. Show more Show less
