Hi I'm Bethany Johnson

I'm a Southern girl who loves books, dogs, music, and laughing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Probably best described as dynamic and kind of quirky, my hobbies include hiking with my dog, belting tunes to my car radio, curling up with a good book, and getting to know other people. I studied biophysics in college but most recently have been exploring the highly regulated but rewarding career of being a banker. The eldest child of three, I like to have all my decisions planned with precision. However one of the greatest lessons I've learned so far is to have faith in the Lord in the face of the unexpected and to trust in His plan for me, even when I don't fully understand it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know I am daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. He loves me so much He allowed His son Jesus Christ to suffer and die for me, then live again so someday I can return to Him. He loves His children so much He's blessed us with prophets to lead and guide us, not just several thousand years ago, but has restored His gospel with a living prophet on the Earth today. I know Heavenly Father has plan for each other His children and that families can be together for eternity and not just this lifetime. I love the gospel and the precious truths it contains with all my heart.

How I live my faith

My faith is an integral part of my life. It influences my thought and actions. While I have a lot of work still as a disciple of Jesus Christ, I can see the difference in my life when I follow his teachings. I cherish being able to attend church on Sunday's and serve through the week in leadership roles, music, teaching, and learning more about my family through genealogy. I love the to read the scriptures and attend the temple. They are such great blessings in my life.
