Hi I'm Whitney Waters

I'm a thinker, violinist, and a people person. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I absolutely love snow skiing, and you can find me boating all summer long. I also enjoy being apart of the Nordstrom BP Fashion Board, and dream of becoming a late night talk show host (compliments of Jimmy Fallon). At the same time, academics are very important in my life, and I have a very busy brain. My favorite things to do always involve my friends or family, whether it be hanging out in between classes, seeing a movie, or engaging prank warfare.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member because the church offers me comfort, and knowledge that I can build my life around. Knowing that my Father in Heaven loves ME, and that his son Jesus Christ atoned for my sins and died for ME is something I wouldn't trade for the world. Because of his church, I have a ward family that will always be there for me. I believe that if anything in my life was taken from me, such as my home, my friends, or even my family, then I could get through those trials with the help of this Gospel. On the other hand, if the Gospel were taken away from me, I would be helpless. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only thing that I can't live without, because it provides me strength and love. It provides me with the knowledge that God is our Eternal Father in Heaven, and Jesus Christ is the Savior of the World. I know that they will always be there for us, no matter what.

How I live my faith

I attend church regularly, read my scriptures every night, pray everyday, and make seminary a priority. All of these things increase my testimony of this Gospel, and make me a happier person!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Whitney Waters
I know that there is a God, because who else could create such an magnificent, diverse world? Who else could create billions of individuals, each with different looks and personalities? Who else could provide us with infinite blessings and tender mercies we have in our every day lives? I know that there is a God because of everything he has give me, like my family, my home, and my life. I also know because I have felt the Spirit in times where I feel peace, or have found something to be true. It testifies that God is there, he loves us, and is always rooting for us. We are his only priority, and that is why he has given us everything. Show more Show less
