Hi I'm Darcy

I was born and raised in a small farming community in Northern California and am pursuing a career in Biology.

About Me

I love the ocean! There is nothing I enjoy more than to walk along a cold Northern California beach or perhaps venture out onto the rocks and look at all the critters in the tide pools. This love has brought me to work towards gaining my bachelor's degree in Biology. But I am going to take a break from school to serve a full time mission in the Kansas Wichita Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert of almost a year and a half. I was baptized in October 2012. I made the decision to be baptized because of the overwhelming comfort I felt. I grew to know the power of prayer. Through prayer, I was able to know that baptism into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would put me on the path Heavenly Father wanted me to be on. I am so grateful to be a part of this church and to know that this is right and true. We are so fortunate to have living prophets and for the guidance they give us. The happiness I feel is all thanks to this Gospel, the church, and the Restoration. It is an amazing blessing that I am grateful to have in my life! I am excited to grow stronger and grow closer to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a light and a positive influence in the lives of all those around me. I try to be a friend, a helper, a listener, a sister to all those in my community. I work hard to serve others because that's how you learn to love others. And that is what I believe this life is all about. Christ showed us compassion. He showed us patience, love, and forgiveness. He is who I choose to follow by trying to do good. By trying to better myself everyday. And by following the commandments and standards of the church.
