Hi I'm Aubrey

I'm pretty cool, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah. I love my family. I love being Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy! Knowing that I am a daughter of God has changed the way I live. It means everything to me! Daily scripture study and prayer are my spiritual anchors, and I know that God can speak to us every day. Through prayer I came to know that this church is God's church, and it contains the covenants and priesthood power God has set forth for His children. This was witnessed to me by the Holy Ghost not with a bolt of lightning and a ground-shaking voice, but a feeling so sweet and strong that it couldn't be denied. I have felt it time and time again. Any person seeking to know whether or not this gospel is true with a sincere heart will receive a similar witness that it is true.

How I live my faith

The most dramatic way I am living my faith is in my decision to serve an 18 month mission. Speaking Spanish and sweating my guts out in McAllen Texas will be a great adventure and I am super excited! As wonderful and faith-strengthening as my mission will be, I know that it is in the efforts I make each day to become more like my Savior that I make the most important progress in living my faith. Being loving and honest at all times is something I strive toward and I've found that daily scripture study and prayer make it a lot easier for me to live a Christlike life. In my community and at church, music has provided me with many opportunities to serve others and feel closer to my Heavenly Father. For the last year I served on my ward's music committee, which means that I helped coordinate the music so that our meetings each week had lots of hymns to welcome in the Spirit. We also tried to help those who can sing and play instruments to share their talents with others. I absolutely love working with kids, and when I can I help my mom tend the toddlers while their parents are at Sunday school. I have also worked in an elementary school as a reading tutor, and I learned a lot from my wonderful kids! I love opportunities to teach because I end up learning the most.
