Hi I'm Desiree

I'm a recent college graduate. I'm a learner, a sister, a friend, and a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Desiree. I am from Washington state. I am 24 years old and the oldest of seven kids. I have a bachelor's degree in Biophysics from Brigham Young University. I've been to 10 countries, and I've run a marathon. I love stars, ice cream, fireflies, and dancing. I also love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to serve Him, come to know and follow Him more fully, and help others come closer to Him as well.

Why I am a Mormon

This Church has always been a significant part of my life; it is something constant, a source of direction and meaning. I feel so much assurance, so much joy and sense of purpose from following the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 7 teaches that every good tree brings forth good fruit. This gospel gives so much goodness to my life. I am a Mormon because I truly believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is good and true, that it is actually led by Jesus Christ. It brings hope and purpose to my life.

How I live my faith

The most important way I feel I can live my faith is through daily efforts to live my life in accordance with the teachings of Jesus Christ. I try to do things every day that demonstrate my commitment to follow Jesus Christ, such as praying, studying the scriptures, making choices that adhere to my high standards, and treating others with Christlike kindness and love.
