Hi I'm Audrey C

I've grown up all around the Asia area. I love to perform and love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am number 5 in a family of 7 kids. I have three older brothers, an older sister, younger sister and a younger brother. Because of my dad's job I have moved and lived in many places around Asia. Though I was born in Pennsylvania I don't remember living there. I have lived in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Chengdu and Beijing China and in Maryland USA. I am definitely a TCK (third culture kid) and I love living in Asia! Currently I am serving as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am now in the missionary training center preparing to serve in Taichung Taiwan. I really enjoy performing. I sing in choirs at school and in the community. I also acted in several plays while I was in High School. I'm hoping to pursue theater and/or music in college after my mission. I want to get a vocal performance degree and am currently enrolled in BYU-Idaho but have deferred until after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but I have my own conversion story. Deep down inside, I've always known the Mormon church was right, but I never felt so strongly about it until I was 16. I had been struggling to keep up with my daily prayer and scripture study. I forgot a few nights because I was so exhausted from school and performances that I went to bed without reading or praying. I didn't feel the spirit as much in church and didn't feel like taking notes or writing down memories as extensively as before. I got angry at my siblings more often and just felt lazy, angry and occasionally depressed. Then one night I remember thinking "I don't like the way I'm feeling. There's something missing here. I'm not normally like this and I want to change it." That night, I said a heartfelt prayer to my father in heaven, asking for guidance and for the spirit as I opened my scriptures for the first time in a few months. The immediate feeling of peace and love from my father in heaven was so strong. I realized that the missing part of my life was my daily study and prayer. I studied out of my scriptures and church magazines and talks to help strengthen my spirit. After that moment, anytime I begin to have those feelings again, I turn back to the Lord and He hears me and helps me. I know He's there and is guiding me in the right direction. I have never felt the spirit more strongly than when I have read the Book of Mormon or participated in Church meetings. I know that this church will get me to where I want to be and Heavenly Father is helping me become the best person I can be through this church. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I am now called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I will be going to Taichung Taiwan to preach the gospel and share the message of our church with the people in Taiwan.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Audrey C
This is one of my favorite blessings received from being a member of the church. Having the constant companionship of the Holy Ghost allows us to receive our own personal revelation from God. I think that's the biggest blessing we receive. Sometimes we might be facing a really difficult decision. We can pray to God and read the scriptures to help us find an answer and the Holy Ghost can confirm that you are on the right path. Or when you are reading the Book of Mormon or even other scriptures and writings of the church, the Holy Ghost can make certain phrases or ideas pop out at you, a prompting that you should follow. i know there are several times a day when I feel like one of my friends might need a hug, or I should smile at that kid in the hallway at school. Those small promptings of the Holy Ghost can really help those around you as well as yourself. Show more Show less
