Hi I'm Victoria

I'm just living life, starting out on my own. I am in the medical field and love helping others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a certified MA, medical assistant. Meaning I draw blood, give injections, perform X-rays, sutures..etc in a doctor's office. I love helping others and aspire to go onto PA school. I love seeing the joy when a problem is solved, an anxiety lifted, or something is being done to find out a problem. The relief you can see on someone's face is incredible! I also have a profound love for the outdoors. Being at one with what God created is only what you can get from being out in nature. It brings a reality back into your senses, a sense of being, a sense of purpose. I always have to get away once in awhile to the nearby mountains or canyon to get grounded to the real reality of life. I love sports, namely soccer. I love running and working out. It brings a rush and a feeling that only pushing yourself past your limit and feeling a sense of accomplishment can bring. I love horses, I have an Arabian named Maria. I have had her for six years and she is a beautiful mare, that would do anything to please. I love her!

Why I am a Mormon

My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 bladder cancer, with a 1% chance to live. Yet he picked to fight it and I watched as he went through each round of chemotherapy, getting closer to death. He went through multiple surgeries. He was within hours of death multiple times, but lived. He has been in remission for 5 years now. But the thing that stood out to me was what he took from going through the fight against cancer. He never said why me, but he said try me. He became even closer to the Lord and I saw a change in him that inspired me to find out for myself. It was a tough week, a lot of change in the coming weeks, I was struggling and there was no one to reach out to. I tried praying,but got no feeling of relief. Then something dawned on me..I need to want this, I need to want it so bad that I pray with all of my heart. You need to meet the Savior half way and he will do the rest. I prayed my heart out that night, and the feeling of peace I got was incredible, my soul was getting soothed by it's maker..no other words could describe the feeling. Then my testimony of the Book of Mormon was shaky, not rock solid. Until the next night I prayed to know if Christ was there, to just feel him with me. I saw my Book of Mormon, it stood out to me, I flipped to Enos. Enos did what I did, he poured his heart out to the Lord and the Lord met him halfway, recognized the wants of his heart and his faith. Then it goes on to talk about how Enos lives his life for Christ, and in the last verse or two he talks about the peace he feels and what awaits him in heaven after this life...I felt that peace in my heart, I felt Enos's peace that he felt as he inscribed those last few symbols on the plates. Now I have no doubt that the Book of Mormon is true. These men were real, they lived and they died just like us. They were as real as you and I. Men died for the Book of Mormon, ancient and modern. It is a book of God. I am a mormon because I KNOW, for myself, that this church is true.

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? I live my faith by living up to the standards and expectations that were put forth by Christ, not by my leaders or my peers, but Christ's standards. I answer to Christ in the end, and I will forever be in debt to him, why not live up to his standards..the one that gave all? I live my faith by always trying to give to others before myself. To reach out to those in need, to help those that might deserve it least but need it most. To give to others the knowledge that I have, the peace that I have through the gospel. It is something that only through living it yourself, that you can truly bring to others. I participate in my FHE in my single's ward, helping plan and coordinate with the activities to make it so others will actually want to come. It makes it as an escape from other things, to have some fun, but also incorporate the gospel with our every week.
