Hi I'm Dakotah

I grew up in Maine. I am a cosmetologist and a student at BYU. I am a sister, a daughter and a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a small family just my younger brother and I. My parents are divorced but nonetheless I grew up happy because I had the gospel in my life. I was very involved in my high school to be sure that I could get the most out of my time there. I played high school basketball and powder-puff football and developed a love for these two sports. I went on to attend Brigham Young University and Paul Mitchell-the school in Provo. I am now a licensed cosmetologist. I love music; I play the guitar and I love to sing. And though I leave my heart back in my small hometown, I love to travel and see the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true. To me it makes sense. In a world of darkness and confusion it gives me light, peace and happiness. I know that I am blessed each day by a Heavenly Father who loves me when I choose the right . I have had personal experiences that have confirmed the truths of this gospel to me and with each new experience my testimony continues to grow stronger. I know that the gospel was restored to this earth by Joseph smith and I know that we have a living prophet on earth today who is called of God and guides us by His counsel. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and I know that as I continue to read it my testimony will grow stronger. Simply put I know this gospel is true and I am a Mormon today because it makes me happy and a better person!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be an example of Christ in all that I do. I hold my standards high when the world seems to keep trying to push them down. I choose to be around friends that know my standards and respect them and stay away from those who seem to care less. Each day I try to be a motivator to do good, a friendly smile, and an example to my friends, the way Christ was. I am about to serve a mission for the church in Curitiba, Brazil, and I couldn't be happier! I know that my life is blessed because I strive to follow the teachings of our prophets and our Heavenly Father each day.
