Hi I'm Miah

I grew up in Utah. I am a photographer of real life. I love making and eating chocolate chip cookies, and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 7 kids. My mom homeschooled us all and because of that I've had some fun opportunities and hobbies that make me who I am. I'm an avid reader of all things especially Alcott, Austin, Dickens, and Rowling. I enjoy baking, it's like therapy and attracts family and friends. Photography is my way of leaving a legacy. An expression, a feeling, a moment in time, all things words can not describe. Gardening, but more specifically, the earth and growing things is where I find my greatest joy. It is God's masterpiece, his camera, that I get to experience every day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know my Savior loves me. When you know something, you must act in accordance with that knowledge or live in torment. To every choice there is a consequence. When you choose to live as Jesus Christ lived and follow his example, the consequences are beautiful and allow my soul to live in peace. Knowledge of a loving Heavenly Father changes everything, it changes me. I believe there is opposition in all things. There have been times on this earth that mens hearts have failed them and they were not capable of feeling this love or God's power here on earth, but I know that today God's power is on the earth. It has been restored through a Prophet and lives through living prophets on the earth today, for "God is the same, yesterday, today, and forever."

How I live my faith

As a young woman I always admired the the women who served me. Having mentors and great Christlike examples make all the difference when you're growing up. I now have the opportunity to serve 12-13 year old girls and be the mentor for them that I had while growing up. Honestly, it doesn't take much to influence a young women. I play with them. I talk with them. I teach them. But most importantly I try to listen. I help plan activities, sometimes we make cookies, other times we rake leaves for neighbors or sometimes we just go on a hike. It's through these activities and experiences that we build relationships of trust that I can then lead them to their Savior, Jesus Christ, who can listen and heal them completely and perfectly.
