Hi I'm Delaney

I'm a musician, a statistician, and an accidental poet. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an optimistic redhead attending Brigham Young University. I love music. I play guitar, piano, and I sing. I'm also really into writing and good literature. Despite my love for all things relating to the humanities, I'm studying statistics and I love it. On the side, I like to bake and do yoga. I spent the first five years of my life in Alaska and have been lucky enough to go back during the summers to visit my extended family. I have been blessed to have amazing experiences in Alaska, including fishing, white water rafting, and flying in a small float plane. One day, I want to live by the beach or a lake and be able to spend my free time paddle boarding and swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the church because the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me true and lasting happiness. No matter what is happening in my life, I can feel happy because of the gospel. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and wants me to come back home to Him. He loves each of us so much that He sent His son Jesus Christ, the only perfect being, to atone for our sins. This is amazing to me. We are loved beyond our comprehension. To me, that's what being Mormon is about: learning to feel the love that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for each of us, and then sharing it with others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church each week and working with other young adults. I help organize weekly activities for a small group of young adults that are both fun and uplifting. I also am assigned to visit other girls I go to church with and share a spiritual message with them each month. This is one of my favorite things to do-it builds my friendships with those I go to church with and uplifts all of us. On an individual level, I study the Book of Mormon each day and try to find ways to apply it to my life. Doing this gives me strength and happiness.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

I know that as I have read the scriptures, I have drawn closer to Heavenly Father. I can feel His love for me in my daily life. I know that as I have diligently studied them, I have gained a testimony of their truthfulness. Scripture study brings a power into my daily life. I feel protected when I read the scriptures. I feel blessed and loved when I make the time to really study my scriptures everyday. Show more Show less
