Hi I'm Destiny Brazeal

I am a convert to the church. My family is important to me. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an ambitious person who loves to learn and travel. Traveling the world has always been a goal of mine since I was young. I have traveled to Canada, France, and at least 40 states including my favorite, New York City. Education is important to me because I love to learn and apply what I know everyday. I am halfway through college and plan to get a degree in International Business. Dancing, writing, acting, and swimming are some of my favorite hobbies. I have danced for 13 years and have performed in the Nutcracker. I go to the beach as often as possible because I love to hear the sound of the ocean. I have been a member of the church since July 14th, 2012. I am the second member of my family to be baptized.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a LDS home. Because of certain circumstances, I had to wait until age 18 to be baptized. I have been active in the church all my life, but it was not until I was a young teenager when I decided to join the church. Living the Gospel makes me feel safe and happy. I am currently a missionary in Paris, France. I have found no greater happiness than living this Gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and participating in church activities. Following the council of church leaders and personal spiritual study also helps me live my faith. Attending yearly conferences gives me the opportunity to listen to important messages and meet new members or people who are interested in the church. I was called as a Primary teacher to teach young children about the importance of the gospel.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Destiny Brazeal
Families can be together forever. When we have completed our time in this life, we can be with those who have passed on and wait for those who are still living on Earth. A husband and wife can be sealed together in the temple and they can spend eternity with one another and their family. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Destiny Brazeal
Jesus Christ sacrificed himself for everyone on Earth so that we can be forgiven of our transgressions and live happily. Christ suffered both in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross. He felt the pain of our sins which led Him to bleed from every pore and suffer great pain. Through the Atonement, we can repent and ask for our errors to be forgiven if we promise not to repeat our wrongdoings. We must have faith in Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized and receive the gift of the holy ghost, and endure by following the commandments and the example of Christ. Through the Atonement, every person can have their burdens lifted and live with content knowing what Christ has done for them. Because of the Atonement, we can live with our Father in Heaven for eternity. Show more Show less
