Hi I'm Bonnie

I love to create. I love Kingdom Hearts. I'm an artist and a writer. I don't always live in this world and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, currently I'm on a mission. I ADORE Kingdom Hearts, Pokemon, drawing, singing and having fun! I guess I should say that I adore stars. More than anything in the world next to family. I could sit outside and watch them all night long even when it's below zero (ok maybe not) I've been a Mormon my whole life, but I had to figure things out on my own. No I didn't follow every rule like I should have and I did some pretty stupid stuff, but thankfully the Atonement is real. I now enjoy reading the scriptures everyday and if I don't, I can feel the difference in the Spiritual absence. I have never felt such joy from reading such an awesome book. I've recently started the Bible and I hope to finish it at least twice before my mission is over.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon by choice now, but I've grown up in this. I know what it is because of the strength of my family in the faith. I was falling away from the church when I got to high school. Though my family were strong believers and attended church regularly, I didn't. I skipped out too many times to count. Then, when my junior year in high school hit I realized that I wasn't happy. I wasn't taking care of myself and I wasn't anything but a burden to those around me. I still tried to figure things out my senior year, but I kept falling back into the same hole of bitterness. I thought things would change in college. But nothing change. I did. but it didn't happen all at once. I had to figure things out the hard way still. I didn't want to be out and about, I was obsessed with what my body looked like and I cared about what everyone else did better than I did. It took some words of wisdom from my Institute teacher to break me out of those habits. "If you're not happy, then first check why. Why don't you enjoy the things God gave you? Is it you or the world?" So why am I a Mormon? Because I've seen and witnessed for myself that the atonement is real. I've seen the change that it has made for me. And right now I'm glad that I can serve my mission and share God's love with those around me. Because that's exactly what He did for me in my darkest hour, when I felt most alone. It was the new hope that was shown to me and given to me as a gift. I am so thankful for the Lord and my Brother Jesus Christ and everything that he does for me. And if you ever need something to think about when you're low. Just imagine Christ reaching His hands out to you, and holding you. Christ loves you. Remember that. He will always be there for you. You are not alone. He is Aware of YOU!

How I live my faith

I've learned while being here in the mission field, that yes, my testimony does matter. I'm trying to help others gain a testimony. It might be hard at times, but I'm pretty sure that through the Spirit, they'll catch on. I seek to share happiness where ever I go. I didn't in the beginning and I regret it. Just by being happy, you can share the love of God. If you're a happy person, God is already working through you to help someone out. It took me a while to figure that out. I am always on the look out for those that don't seem to have very many people care about them. One thing that my Stake President told me before I came out was, "Look for those who's hands hang low. They are the ones who need what you have to share. Seek them out." I never thought that I would be the one to do that for someone, but the Lord works in mysterious ways. Just keep reading and praying and always ask Jesus Christ for help. Because he'll always ALWAYS be there to help you. He'll never turn away. And that's what we should do. Never turn away.
