Hi I'm Phoebe

I'm a born and raised Idahoan. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I love to run, eat, bike, sleep, laugh, smile, and be happy! I completed one semester at Utah State University, and will shortly leave for my mission to MTC on April 2nd. I cannot wait to serve the people in Pennsylvania!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born into this church, which I believe was for a purpose. I needed to have a strong basis so that I could be able to spread the gospel more fully. I didn't have an "a-ha" moment where everything just clicked. I have learned and still am learning things every day that help to strengthen my testimony. It will continue to grow throughout my life and in the life to come. I know my heavenly father loves me and all of his children. He gave us this earth to live on and prosper. He gives us countless opportunities to make ourselves better by making our own decisions that lead to actions. He will not give us anything we cannot overcome. These trials can be overcome as we keep the commandments, read the scriptures, and pray to Him. We are all His children, and I know that we all have the potential to be wonderful, bright people as long as we do everything we can to follow Jesus Christ. Christ is the only begotten son of our heavenly father. He atoned for our sins so that we might be forgiven of our misdeeds and wrong choices. I know that this is true as I have felt the forgiving power of Heavenly Father in my life. It helps me to move on and not feel the guilt that often accompanies a mistake. Christ is our perfect example of how to live our lives. He was a very loving and giving person. He taught the people while he was on earth, and then suffered for our sins. He is our brother and our mentor. The more we strive to be like him, the more we will grow as individuals. I know this gospel is true and I know that Heavenly Father is our father in heaven. I speak with him daily and do my best to follow his instructions. Jesus Christ is the son of God. I know this gospel was restored to the earth by Joseph Smith so that Heavenly Father's children would be able to return to him. I know that this church is led by a prophet that is sent from God at this moment in time. I love this gospel and all the blessings I have by living it.

How I live my faith

I'm a teacher at church, where I teach the 12 year old youth of our ward. They are awesome kids that love the gospel as much as I do. I find those who lack joy and happiness to help because I feel they need it the most. I always think what my life would be like if I didn't have the gospel to help bring these things into my life. It would be hard and difficult, but I know with the Savior's help I can have these things and more!
