Hi I'm Yvette

I'm an aspiring artist, singer, and writer. Oh, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing and dance. I grew up around them; singing in church and dancing hula with my extended family. I draw all the time and want to improve my painting skills. I write songs and want to learn to play the guitar and 'ukulele. I'm finishing up my Associate's Degree and hope to learn Midwifery after that. I really want

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but wasn't always obedient. I dealt, and still deal with, depression. For a short time, I tried looking for peace, support, something that would help me, all from outside sources. At my lowest point, I could only get on my knees and pray as I hadn't done for a while. I realized as I prayed that even though I had strayed, I could still come back. It was like an enormous weight had been lifted and I found more peace at that moment than I had thought I could ever have. I remembered what had helped me through some of my darkest times before. The knowledge that no matter how messed up I thought I was, I could remember that I had a Heavenly Father and a Savior, my elder brother, Jesus Christ, in my life. I remembered that they love me and that they can see who I am as well as who I may become. As I've re-committed myself, I've learned that it is not a one-time decision. It is a decision that must be made often. We will all make mistakes, but we can learn from them. The world is full of confusing and conflicting messages. It becomes so convoluted at times that one hardly knows where to go. But this church, its doctrines, and its leaders have helped me learn more about who I am, where I come from, and where I'm going.

How I live my faith

I enjoy sharing my feelings and opinions in classes. I try to be friendly with the members of my ward. I do not expect to be best friends with all of them, but I know what it feels like to feel totally left out. So I hope I help at least some feel welcome.
