Hi I'm Valerie

I grew up in Oregon. I am going to school to become an Elementary teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the third child out of four. I have to older brothers and a younger sister. I love to read, and write. I rewrite my favorite fairy tales. I also play the piano. I have recently graduated from high school, and will be attending college after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member my entire life. There is nothing I would change. I love everything about this gospel. Most of all I love how we center our church around the teachings of Christ. I have the knowledge that I will be with my family for eternity. We are all here to make it back to our Heavenly Father, who knows and loves each and everyone of us. He loves us so much that he sent Jesus Christ to die for us, so that we are able to return to him. This church is true and I know it with my whole heart.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. I help plan activities for the youth to participate in. I have been called to be a leader for the youth several times, and loved getting to know the youth around my age.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We believe the Bible to be written by apostles and prophets. The Bible is holy scripture and is the word of God. The Bible brings us closer to God. The teachings in the Bible are there to help us grow closer to God. Show more Show less
