Hi I'm Lacy

I am a college student. I am a small town girl. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the mountains. My home was nestled between two mountains in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Colville Washington. I spent my days at home hiking, riding my bike, and playing with the many cousins that lived close by. Currently, I am a full time student at Brigham Young University Idaho studying Graphic Design. When I'm not doing homework I love to play soccer, take photographs, and I try to love practicing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But I have not always had a strong testimony. As a child I accepted the things that my parents and church leaders said because that was all I knew. As I grew up I began to realize that other kids didn't believe the same things that I did. Some even thought that I would end up in Hell. I began to question things for myself. I read the scriptures every day, I prayed to Heavenly Father asking that I would know for myself if the Gospel was true. Over time it came to be that there was no doubt in my mind that it was. I know the Book of Mormon is full of revelation from God intended to help us learn more of Him and of Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a man, called of God, to help establish Christ's pure gospel upon the earth as it hadn't been since the time of Christ. I know that this knowledge and the principles it encompasses have brought me every moment of true happiness in my life. I can't imagine going throughout life without the comfort, peace and confidence that this knowledge gives me. I am a Mormon because it brings more joy and truth to my life than any other thing ever will.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my meetings and accepting calls to serve when they come to me. In the past I have been asked to be president over a group of girls my age. I was responsible for planning activities and making them feel loved. I have also had the experience of being the chorister for my ward. At the young age of 17 I got to pick out the songs for each sunday meeting and lead the congregation in singing. Currently I have accepted and am preparing to serve a full time mission in Lima Peru. I will have the chance to live Peru for 18 months and also learn the Spanish so that I can share my testimony with the people there in their native tongue.
