Hi I'm Heidi

I love to sing. My favorite season is Fall. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For the past few months I have been working in retail. I have met lots of fun people and am always amazed at how a stranger is willing to open up when we find something in common! In high school I always loved performing in musicals and choir, and have continued singing in college. I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking, swinging, and camping. I also love playing games with my family on Sunday nights.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have felt the influence of a loving Heavenly Father in my life. God loves us as His children more than we can even comprehend! He has blessed me with a loving family, good friends, and a safe country to live in. Things aren't always this easy, but even in trials I have learned to have an "eternal perspective". When I look at the big picture of things, I am able to turn my seemingly mountainous problems into molehills, and focus my attention outside of myself. As a part of this church, I have always learned about the importance of serving others. This is an amazing lifestyle to try and live, because by serving those around us we can forget our own struggles. Combining this with my belief in God and our Savior, Jesus Christ, gives me a hopeful perspective on the future and the potential it contains. I believe that Jesus Christ allowed Himself to be sacrificed for us because He is a loving brother and He wants us to be able to forgive ourselves, forget our sins, and strive to be the best "us" that we can become. The Book of Mormon is a wonderful historical book full of truths that can bring absolute happiness into our lives if we choose to follow God's teachings. Although having faith can be scary, a faithful life conquers fear and brings us more confidence in ourselves and in the life Heavenly Father has planned for us. I am so thankful for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! It is full of truth and happiness, and I know it's the right place to be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending the Salt Lake Temple every week. There I am able to perform sacred work for myself and my ancestors to help us be a family forever. I also, because of my love of music, have had the opportunity to lead women in my ward in singing hymns of praise. One of the most fun experiences I've had is working with the teenage girls in my ward. We have become very good friends, and I have had a fulfilling time watching them develop and grow into strong young women.
