About Me

Hi! I'm 21 years old. I love reading, photography, music, fashion, movies, food, cats, road trips, life.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life, but there was a time when I lost faith in everything and became atheistic. I was not rebelling against the religion I had grown up with, it was simply a time my faith was being tested and it happened to be faith I didn't really have. I thought I was content not having any belief in God, believing instead in reincarnation or evolution or whatever I felt like believing in that day, but I was slowly becoming depressed. When I realized how unhappy I was, I tried going back to church because it reminded me of times when I was happier. I noticed a significant difference in myself because going to church with an open heart invited the Spirit back into my life, and it changed me! I gained a testimony by continuing to go to church, reading the Book of Mormon and sincerely praying about it. It took time and a lot of effort and prayers, but I now know that God loves me and that Jesus Christ died for me. The gospel brings the purest happiness I have ever known, even through the hardest times!

How I live my faith

I contribute to my church mostly by sharing my musical talents- by playing on the piano hymns we sing in our meetings or for talent shows or church parties. Right now however, I'm a full-time missionary and I love it!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Valerie Loveless
We try to pattern our lives after how Jesus Christ lived! He was the perfect example of humility, patience, and love. We know that we'll never be exactly like Him in this life, but we try our best! We know that doing things that God has commanded us, such as reading the scriptures, praying, loving others, etc. will help us be more like our Savior. Show more Show less
