Hi I'm Acacia

My mother left my father 14 years ago because she was afraid for our safety. I grew up with no father. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time student at Dixie State University. I'm majoring in Nursing and minoring in Business. Growing up, I was a ballerina and ballroom dancer and I absolutely loved it. I now work for my Grandparents RV Park and am so grateful to my Opa, who was the most amazing "father-figure" anyone could ask for. He taught me so many things, from all about boys to how to read the meters in the RV Park and how to work with all challenges of running the RV Park. I really enjoy working with all the the residents that live there. Being raised by a single mother who depends and has faith in the Lord in everything she does has made me who I am. I wouldn't change it for the world because it has brought me so close to her and she is my best friend and mentor. My mom recently was remarried to a very nice man. He a great example of good guy who honors his Priesthood and is calm, loving and non-violent in our home. I'm thankful for his faithful influence in our lives. I was born and raised in the church and have been in several leader positions in the Young Women's and enjoyed serving the Lord an lots of different ways.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church because being Mormon has given me the answer to the most puzzling questions in life. It brings peace to my heart and soul to know that I am a child of a God, a real loving Father in Heaven. Even though I do make mistakes, I know that I can repent and and that he loves me and that I can still be perfect in my the Savior's eyes. It gives meaning and purpose to my life and my loved ones. Feeling the spirit is one of the greatest feelings in the world. From being in Sacrament meeting when a new baby is blessed, to being in the middle of the woods at girls camp while everyone is taking their turn sharing their testimony. There is no greater feeling! And even though we all experience the Holy Spirit in different ways, each and everyone of us should seek out the Spirit in prayer and study to know what the Spirit feels like so that we can have the Holy Ghost be our guide throughout this life.

How I live my faith

I was just recently the Young Women's Laurel's President in the Stone Cliff Ward but was released because I graduated from High School. I've been going to church with my Grandmother at her ward ever since my Grandfather passed in February of this year. I help her live her faith and help her understand and remind her when she gets really lonely that she will be with my grandfather again some day and in eternity, they will never have to be apart again. I live my faith in my everyday life... in my work, family, friends, school and etc. Not just in church on Sunday. Living moment to moment my world depends on my love and relationship with Jesus Christ. I love serving the elderly and I love working with children, and look forward to being a mom someday, but in the meantime, I hope to soon have a calling to serve in the primary -- especially with the nursery children.
