Hi I'm Desirrae Barnett

I'm from Texas. I'm obsessed with understanding family dynamics. I'm the favorite child. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up a city girl. I love playing sports...revenge dodge ball, racquetball, basketball, snowboarding(except I think I may have gotten a concussion the last time I went), etc. I love playing the piano! Especially fast songs! My grandparents raised me! That's definitely the best way to be raised. I am the middle of 3, so I have 2 sisters. I am currently studying Marriage and Family at Brigham Young University-Idaho and I love it. I served a mission for my church in Phoenix, Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandparents told me their conversion story when I grew up as a little girl. It is still one of my favorite stories. They have blessed me with the opportunity to grow up with truth and the knowledge that Heavenly Father knows and loves us. I believe God has a plan for me and that He loves me. I suppose I keep living this Mormon life because I find answers to my soul-searching questions.

How I live my faith

Oh stories I could tell... It's hard and it's easy to live my faith in this cool world. I find that it's hard because I stand out so much by the way I dress, eat, drink, and talk. I find it's easy to live my faith because I am surrounded by people who do it every day. I am also quite aware of the social science, scholarship, and research surrounding LDS practices. But this still does not answer the questions of how I live my faith. I'm still figuring this out. I'll get back to you when I do.
