Hi I'm Roxanne

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student. I am studying K-12 special education and I want to be an elementary school teacher. I love fashion, Pinterest, shoes, pedicures, reading, playing the piano, listening to music, writing, doing yoga, and spending time with my friends and family members.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith. I have not always been into the gospel, but through many learning experiences in my life, I have come to know that the gospel taught in the Mormon church is true. I know that Jesus Christ loves me. He is my Savior and He atoned for my sins. I know that His Spirit is always with me. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and we have living prophets on the earth today. They guide me and give me direction in my life because they help me know what God would have me do here on earth. I love prayer as well. Prayer is how I can communicate with God. I enjoy telling God things that have been on my mind, how my day is going, who I am crushing on, serious things, goofy things, etc. because I know that He is listening to every word that I say. He gives me comfort when I need comfort, joy when I need joy, a friend when I need a friend, happiness when I am sad, courage when I am weak, and faith to journey onward through whatever I am experiencing. He gives me the strength I need to stand up again after life knocks me down. I have felt God's love for me during happy times, sad times, times when I am confused, times when I am stressed, and times when I just feel like I need a hug! I do think that God gives us more than we can handle sometimes--alone, at least. God gives us trials that push us just over our comfort zone because doing so helps us reach up to Him so that He can helps us face our trials with courage. He tests our limits, but He is there throughout the testing process. I know that God's love is there for me always, whether or not I feel like I deserve His perfecting love. To God, nothing is impossible. He has given me the Book of Mormon, the prophets, my family, and my Church leaders to help me through anything I may face. That is how I know He loves me. That is why I am a part of God's Church. I am a part of the Church because I know that God loves me and I feel His love when I make the Church the #1 priority in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently the president of the women's organization in my local Church group. I love working with the women I serve. I help them learn more about the gospel, but also plan parties and social gatherings for them to attend. I also volunteer part-time with a program that helps adults with mental and physical handicaps. I enjoy spending my time with these people. It is so rewarding and helps me feel grateful for what I have, so I love doing it.
