Hi I'm Whitney

I grew up in the Salt Lake valley, Utah. I love life, my family is my passion and Jesus is my Savior. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing, country swing dance, rock climb, water ski. I am an avid lover of virtually any kind of game. I love to laugh and making people laugh! I graduated from high school at sixteen and began attending the community college when I was seventeen, studying general education. A year later I chose to specifically study linguistics and transferred to a four year university, and love what I am studying and learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and chose when I was eight years old to become a baptized member of the church. I choose to continue in my faith, as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, because I have been given testimony through my study of the holy scriptures and through my seeking in earnest prayer to know of it's truthfulness. And it is true. Heavenly Father answered my prayers and blessed my heart with a swelling, like a warm, comforting fire, a confirmation that it is true. I testify that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is this book, a record of the Lord's people in the Americas, that is the corner stone of this church. It is upon the words in the Book of Mormon, the words of the prophets of God, that the church is built. Joseph Smith is and was a prophet of God, who restored the gospel to the earth through much sacrifice and trial. I testify that the prophet Thomas S. Monson who leads the church today, is likewise a prophet of God. I testify that Jesus Christ lived, he died and he lives once more as our resurrected Lord and Savior. He lives!

How I live my faith

How do I live my faith? I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. When I was fourteen years old, I was called to serve as a leader in my group of young women and served in that calling for about two years. I was responsible for organizing activities, planning and giving lessons in class on Sundays, contacting the other young women over whom I had responsibilities and inviting girls who were not as active with our group to every activity and Sunday lesson. I learned to love my girls and I learned the importance of fulfilling my responsibilities. I live my faith when I pray in the mornings, when I turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer throughout my day seeking guidance and comfort, when I kneel to pray once more at the end of my day. I live my faith when I see someone in need and take the time to give of my substance.
