Hi I'm Heli

i'm from finland. i'm serving as a missionary on temple square. i love seeing people smile. i love to laugh. i am a mormon.

About Me

i was born and raised in finland. i'm the oldest of 6 children so i'm used to having a lot of people around me but i still enjoy my time alone. i love spending time with the people i love. i like to travel and see new places. i'm always up for an adventure. i love to read. i would like to do something cool as a profession, but i'm still trying to figure out what that is. i love the nature. i suck in sports but i still enjoy them. i play piano really badly but i love listening to music. i was born and raised believing in God but i still had to come to know Him personally. i'm happy to know that i have a loving Heavenly Father. i have no idea about where the future takes me but i am happy to grow older.

Why I am a Mormon

both of my parents joined the church through missionaries in finland so i had the privilege to be born in the church. yet i consider myself as a convert because there was a point in my life when i had to know for myself. i love the knowledge i have of a loving Heavenly Father who knows all of us personally and knows the struggles and events we are going through in our lives. He loves us and wants to help us and that has always given me great comfort. i know that He is real because i have felt His love in my life numerous times. i know He loves us also because i know He sent his son Jesus Christ to the earth. through Christ we all can change and become more like the people God knows we can become. i know nothing is impossible. we all have huge potential. there is nothing we can do to "ruin" our opportunities as children of God. He loves us too much to let that happen. i think there are far more deeper reasons why i am a member of this church but it all comes down to the knowledge i have that my Heavenly Father loves me, and because he loves me, we have been given the full knowledge of the plan that He has for all of us.

How I live my faith

i think living my faith to me simply means doing the things i know to be right. i guess the best way yo describe it is just the way i live my life. my faith is behind everything that i do. i believe having a faith in God isn't a restrictive thing - i gives me more meaning in life than anything else. right now the biggest thing i do to live my faith is by serving as a full-time missionary and helping others discover the same peace i have received through the gospel.
