Hi I'm Ruth

I grew up in California, went to school at BYU-Idaho, and am now preparing to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a cheerleader in High School and then went to college at BYU-Idaho and loved it! I am now preparing to serve a mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I didn't gain a testimony until college. I always knew it was true but never really invested myself in it. I went to college and was surrounded by many strong members of the church and I wanted to be like them. So I found out for myself. Through some trials and hard times I learned to lean upon the Lord and grow closer to him. I read the Book of Mormon and gained a testimony for myself of the truthfulness of that book. I love this gospel, through every trial and confusing time in my life it has led me to happiness. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to grow up as a Mormon and have such good values instilled in me as a small child.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a friend. I help with the small children at our church who are 6 and love it. I also go out with the missionaries and help them.
