About Me

I'm an elementary education major at BYU-Idaho. I love the outdoors and nature more than the city any day! I have been a member of this amazing church for a little over 2 1/2 years. It saved my life, literally. I was in a dark scary place before I found the healing light of the LDS church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this gospel saved my life. I was in a dark place where I began to doubt God's existence and if he really loved me. I started to not go to church and to hang around with the wrong crowd, who didn't believe in God or anything spiritual. My life was so depressive and lonely with out God, but I still doubted his true existence and love for me. Eventually. my best friend made me come to a LDS sacrament meeting. and right away I knew this is what I was looking for, The missing piece to why I felt abandoned by God. It was that I did not feel God's and Jesus' love from my congregation or any other Evangelical or Presbyterian churches I was attending. the first day in the LDS church I experienced and overwhelming, even shocking amount of Godly love an acceptance I had never felt before. I knew I had to be apart of it ! I was baptized 3 months after I started investigating. I have never been happier or ore fulfilled in my life. This church and gospel saved em from a life of pain, depression, feelings of abandonment, and spiritual deprivation.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing my happiness and testimony almost everyday. I try to find a new way to share my faith everyday, especially with close friends and loved ones. I also follow the rules of the gospel and the doctrine for I know it is there to nourish and strengthen my body and my soul.
