Hi I'm Georgia

I grew up in England. I study Physics at University and I am a recent convert. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in England all of my life, and I am currently in my final year of studying Physics at University. I am planning on training to be a Physics teacher after University. I love learning, and have been really grateful to study complex topics such as quantum mechanics and astrophysics as part of my degree. They have given me a really strong scientific grounding, and this helped me a lot when I was first investigating the church. For the past four years, I have also worked in a children's adventure playground during the Summer. I absolutely love travelling and over the past couple of years, I have volunteered in places as diverse as Mongolia, Ecuador and Kenya. I am keen to do more volunteer work, and would love to visit more countries in the near future.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found truth in the church. As a Physicist, I like things to be logical. It seemed logical to me that if there were a God, all I had to do was ask him if he was truly there. After a lot of prayer, I had several experiences which confirmed to me that there is more to this life than what we can see, and all we have to do is ask God, and he will manifest himself to us in His time and in a way that we will understand. I have found so much peace and meaning in my life since joining the church, and I am grateful to know where I came from, who I am, and where I am going. I had several 'lightbulb' moments which showed me that the church is true, and joining the church was the next logical step after that.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being honest with everyone that I meet and trying not to judge other people, especially those with different beliefs to me. I strongly believe that there is a lot of beauty and truth to be found in other religious beliefs, and being tolerant and accepting is so important for me in how I live my faith. As for my church life, I also work with the 12-18 year old young women, teaching them and helping them with any problems that they may have. I pray and read the scriptures everyday, and I also attend church each week on a Sunday morning. My main aim is to show people that being a Mormon doesn't have to restrict you; it's actually really fun! I love my life and try to show my faith in everything that I do. It doesn't have to be obvious - sometimes just smiling at someone on the street is enough. Rather than trying to be a "good Mormon", I'm just trying to live my faith by being a good person and living by Gospel standards, and I have found this to bring a lot of joy and happiness to my life.
