Hi I'm Heidi Roberts

I live in Sandy, Utah. I am going to be serving a mission in Boston, Massachusetts. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and enjoying life! I live in Sandy, Utah with my mom and 16 year old sister. My dad passed away when I was four and since that time we have gotten sealed in the temple and become closer as a family. I love singing and music. I was in choir and a bell choir in high school. I love basketball and hockey. After I serve my mission, I will be going to college to be a high school math teacher. I enjoy getting to know people and I love a good joke. People tell me I'm funny (I agree haha) and I love helping people. This past summer I worked at Oakcrest (an LDS Girls Camp) and it was the best summer of my entire life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know how living and not living the Gospel has affected my life. I know that no matter how hard my life gets that if I never lose sight of God that He will help me through everything. I know, through many many experiences, that trials are to make me strong. I know that Heavenly Father has a special plan for me on this Earth and that I will be the happiest when I am doing the Lord's work. He wants nothing more than for me to enjoy this life. Through the Gospel this is possible! I know that for a truth. I am happier when I am doing what the Lord wants me to do. I am kinder and more caring. What I want out of my life is what the Lord knows I need. He knows exactly what I need. I am happy because I live for the Lord and I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing what the Lord wants me to do. I accept all callings that come to me. I search for those that could use my help. I stay strong to my personal standards and do all I can to shine light into others lives. I love to go to the temple and I go as often as I can. I love learning about the church and I love teaching people. Which is why I will be serving a mission. Everyone needs the opportunity to know of this wonderful Gospel. When I was a camp counselor, I got the opportunity to teach tons of 13 year old girls (members, nonmembers, inactive) and I loved it. I try to help people know that living the Gospel is FUN. I have experienced that true happiness only comes when serving the Lord. I know that is true. I know the church is true. And I want the whole world to know the same.
