Hi I'm Desiree

I Grew up in Arizona, I'll be serving a mission soon, I love laughing and making people laugh and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the small town casa grande, not having a lot to do, I grew to love country music and country swing dancing. I love hanging out with my friends, and we love to laugh! I also enjoy listening to people and their life experiences.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church but I wasn't really converted until I was 18. I knew that the book of Mormon was true when I was 15 but I didn't really do much after I found that out. I made choices that weren't the best and let others around me influence my life in the wrong way. It wasn't until I graduated high school and moved to Idaho that I started realizing that my heavenly father really loves and cares about me personally. I began to see that he had a plan for me and that I could choose to be happy and live the gospel OR turn away from him and miss the opportunities that he was giving me. I chose to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of later day saints because I want to be happy and help others to be happy too! I know that Jesus Christ lives and is our brother. He did exactly what our heavenly father wanted him to do, he died for us so that we have the opportunity to return to him again, He gave us the perfect example of how to go about doing things so we CAN return to him, He showed us how to truly love others and show them that heavenly father has a plan for them. Without knowing these things I feel that my life would not have any meaning, but because I know these things my life has purpose! I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

The congregation I attend is a group of young single adults ages 18-30. I am in charge of planning activities for the women of our group, I also help to conduct and teach some of the classes that we have on Sundays. I have grown to love the people that I work with and have built many friendships as we have learned and spent time together at institute weekly ( like a bible study class). I love having people around that I can depend on and have fun with! we all learn and grow together, come closer to Christ and help others to do the same.
