Hi I'm Lani Gray

I've lived in Arizona all of my life. I graduated high school in 2014. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I played basketball in high school and I like to bake sometimes when I'm stressed. Haha I don't know why because I always have to clean up the big mess when I'm done making cookies or whatever. I went to community college for a semester and did well but now I'm preparing to go on a mission to Tahiti in March and don't have enough time to squeeze in another semester before I leave. I love psychology and can't wait to get a degree that will allow me to have a career that has to do with psychology in some way. I think I would really like to be a college professor but we'll see.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. There have been too many powerful moments when I've been hit by the spirit to deny that this church is true. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and that they love each one of us and they are completely aware of our struggles. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and because of the atonement I can repent and return to my Heavenly Father one day. I have a testimony of The Book of Mormon. It truly is another testament of Jesus Christ and we can have so much peace in our lives and gain so much knowledge if we take the time to study it. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and I am grateful for his faith and the amount of trials he went through for us to have the restored gospel on earth today. I know that family members that have passed away are watching over us and protecting us from the other side. I know that because of Temples families can be together forever and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

How I live my faith

I have a calling right now in the church. I teach 8-11 year olds every Sunday and I really enjoy it. Children are so innocent and sweet and if I want to be more Christ like I could just listen to them and treat people the way these children treat each other. They are encouraging and uplifting to each other and always willing to learn something new and I love that.
