Hi I'm Nalany Resek

I've lived in Utah my whole life. My name's Hawaiian, parents are Argentine, I have 6 amazing siblings. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student at Brigham Young University, and that has been filled with family, friends, food, and fun! I love to make others laugh and feel good about themselves. Reading is my favorite thing, but I also like to run when I have the motivation to do so. I like playing the piano, flute, and singing alto. I love Messi, though I don't play soccer. Most people say they hate a movie as a first date, but I don't think anything makes me happier than watching movies, probably because it's one of my family's favorite things to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because it just makes me feel so good! I have the knowledge that someone knows exactly what I'm going through (Jesus Christ), and that I'm never alone. I've seen how being a member of this church has blessed me, my family, and the relationships I've made with others. I am able to communicate with a loving Heavenly Father through prayer, who knows MY name, as well as YOURS. I know that our book-The Book of Mormon-is "the most correct of any book on this earth". It was translated by Joseph Smith, a prophet, and through this, the Gospel was restored upon the earth. I know that Jesus Christ lives today, and that our Heavenly Father WILL bless us if we only come unto Him and repent of our sins and try to do and be a little better every day. See for yourself, in Moroni 10 verses 4-5 :)

How I live my faith

You can live your faith by loving everyone. Give someone else the benefit of the doubt. Don't gossip. Live the golden rule. I had a job as a restaurant server before I served a missionary in Chile, and everyone knew not to swear around me and would apologize if doing so. I believe that social media is a great way to spread the Gospel, whether it be a quote, a scripture, or a talk by somebody-we can uplift those around us.
