Hi I'm Grace

I am from San Diego. My family is everything. I love the beach. Smiles are contagious. and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a born and raised California Girl. Swimming and playing in the waves of the Mama Pacific is the best medication. I appreciate the earth that God gave us and I feel closer to Him the more I am outside. I love doing things spontaneously but having a plan is good to! I love seeing new places but I also enjoy being home:) I have a few close friends who I love dearly and would do anything for and my family is everything and more to me and the future family I will have is the reason I live the way I live. I love meeting new people and talking to them about what makes them Happy. I am a little weird, I appreciate random thoughts and I love laughing! Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sharing it with others makes me happy and I am so grateful to know I will never go without the truth. I served a mission in the Illinois Nauvoo Mission and the Virginia Richmond Mission. I loved my mission and I am so grateful for all the people I met and all the experiences I had. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was fourteen the first time I really started make choices that could have led me down a bad path. Because of this my mom got down on her knees and asked God what she could do to help her children make better choices. She got an answer that really surprised her and she acted on it. My mom reached out to a friend she grew up with who was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. When I learned that Jesus Christ restored his church though a Prophet of God everything felt so right and so true. Every time the missionaries were at our home I just got this feeling I couldn't explain and later learned that it was the Holy Ghost that I was feeling. I knew that that good feeling I got from having them around, came from Heavenly Father. The Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ brings families close together and I recognized that happening to us almost immediately. I am Mormon because I have prayed and got an answer to know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and the more I read it the more I love the Bible. I am a Mormon because I have gained a personal relationship with my Savior and I know that he died for me and that he lives! Through his Atonement I not only can be healed but I can be cleansed and enabled to keep moving forward. I am Mormon because I know that this is Jesus Christ's true Gospel and his church that he once established, fully restored back on earth. Being baptized was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing what I know and believe with anyone who I talk to or who asks. I try to be like Jesus Christ each day. I live my faith by being a good example to those around me. I am in no way perfect so that is why I am so grateful to have repentance which allows me to fully access the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
