Hi I'm Stephanie

I'm a Vegas girl, I'm a red head, I'm a returned missionary from Norway, and I'm a Mormon! :)

About Me

My name is Stephanie. I'm currently pursuing my college education at a university in Utah. The things I love most in this life include my family, learning, Norway, and the Gospel. I recently returned home from the Oslo Norway mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true. The knowledge that I am a spiritual daughter of God the Eternal Father and that He loves me has been an anchor in my life. I know through losses of loved ones that it is better to trust God that to trust in mankind. I recognize how imperfect I am and how reliant I am on Christ and His Atonement. I testify that it is only through His grace, love and sacrifice we can return to live with God and our families forever. Through Him, our weaknesses can become strengths. Through Him, we can grow to Love ourselves and Love others. Through Him, we will find happiness in this life and everlasting joy in the life to come. He is my hope, and it is because of this hope that I continue to follow His gospel. He has shown the way and is waiting for each of us to take the first step in following Him. I have been through periods of my life where I have reached out through the gospel to build my relationship with Him, and I have also been through times in my life where I have regressed and slipped away from His light because I was focused on distractions this world is so ready to trick us with. I know that life is so much better and sweeter when we accept Christ and invite Him to be apart of our lives. He has promised to help us and pleads for us to seek Him. I am happy and at peace when I choose Christ over the world. He has so much to offer; and his blessings continue into the next life. I know He loves me, and I know He loves every soul that has lived, is currently living, and will yet live on the earth. I know because I have felt His love in my life and have seen how it blesses others. This is His gospel, His truth, and the way that will lead us to a glorious life with Him after death.

How I live my faith

I strive to follow the example of our Savior, Jesus Christ, wherever I am. I love to attend the temple to provide service for those who have passed on and to find peace. One of my favorite ways to share my testimony is through music. When I lived in Las Vegas, I was blessed to be a participant in the Zion's Youth Symphony and Chorus program.
