Hi I'm Simuka Dittmer

I love to read, run, and watch movies. I am a hard working student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am student learning to become a certified sign language interpreter. I enjoy working with deaf blind individuals and attending activities with them. I was married at the end of 2013 and still feel like a newlywed bride. I love to run outside and enjoy my surroundings. I love participating in road races and fun runs like: color run, electric run, and obstacle courses. I love being a part of Relay for Life and being involved!

Why I am a Mormon

I have strived to live the teachings of the Mormon faith and have found an abundance of peace and happiness. Membership in the church has helped me grow closer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I have learned to have faith and trust in the Lord as I have attended church and that the Lord will strengthen me through my trials. I testify that I am a daughter of a King. Each and every one of us are brothers and sisters and sons and daughters of a Heavenly Father. The Holy Ghost has testified this to me and I know that we can return to live with our father in heaven and Brother Jesus Christ again. The gospel has shaped my life into what it is today and it has given me joy and assurance to know that the Lord watches over me. I can communicate with him as I pray and He will speak to my heart through the Holy Spirit and his written word. I know that The Book of Mormon alongside The Holy Bible is true because I have prayed to my Heavenly Father to be assured of it. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the restored gospel and that it is Christ’s true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving every day to be better than the day before. I realize that I am not going to be perfect, but I can be perfect in trying. I study Christ and his attributes so that I may follow His example through my actions. I feast from His scriptures to be enlightened and learn how to live righteously. I love to get to know people in my church and love to form new friendships as I visit with sisters every month. I try to obey the Lord's commandments in a strict way so that I might have joy in this life. I attend the Latter Day Saints Temple regularly so that I may receive strength during hard times and grow spiritually strong. I also try to live my faith by assisting missionaries in spreading the great news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a member missionary is a sacred work and one of my most prized responsibilities each member of our church holds. It is a call to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and to help others to find everlasting joy through Him.
