Hi I'm Holly

I love to ride horses and be outside. I love chocolate and watching movies. I know that families are forever. I am a Mormon. (:

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission. I also served 3 months of my mission in the Virginia Richmond Mission. My life has changed completely since serving as a missionary. I wasn't always strong in this gospel growing up but serving a mission has made me realize just how much I need it in my life. Back home I really loved to just have fun with my family and friends. I loved to watch movies and be outside whether at the beach or in the mountains. God's creations have really changed my life and I feel closer to Him when I am exploring what He created for me. I have a little brother who passed away and knowing that I will see him again keeps me going through this life. I love reading the Book of Mormon and discovering new things in it that I didn't recognize before. I love having the spirit in my life because I feel more happier and I have peace. I also like cats and snuggling with them when they let me. (:

Why I am a Mormon

The answer to the question of why I am a Mormon is because I simply grew up in this church. But, the answer as to why I stayed a Mormon is because God wouldn't let me leave. I have often wondered why me. Why did I choose to stay in the church. There was a time in my life where I didn't want to be a part of it, but somehow God brought me back. I don't know how it started or how I am where I am now. That is why all I can say is God needed me in this church. He saved my life and showed me that true happiness can really be reached in this life. On my mission I have been converted to the gospel in a way that I have a hard time explaining my testimony in words. I have gotten confirmation after confirmation of the truthfulness of this church. I have had to many experiences to look at someone and tell them that it isn't true. I have come to know God and that if you want to grow closer to Him more than anything else, it has to be through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Mormon because its all I've known. I stayed a Mormon because God changed my heart. I will forever be grateful that He gave me a second chance.

How I live my faith

Before my mission I didn't exactly live my faith. Being from Southern California, it was hard to live the standards that this church teaches. Coming on my mission has showed and taught me that no matter where I am or who I'm with I can be a shining light. I really want to be a better example, especially to my family and friends so that they can see just how much we need this church in our lives. I try to be the best Christ-like example to all so that they can know I'm not just a part of this church, but it is in my heart and I am converted to it. I try to pray always and do the best job I can as a missionary so that everyone can see the light of Christ in this church. I plan to go home and help my family who are struggling with this gospel and also my friends so that they can have the joy and peace that I have developed in my life because of this gospel. I live my faith every second of my life, because it is what saved mine.
