Hi I'm Celeste Bagley

I love Sonic slushes, Taylor Swift and the color pink. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Phoenix, Arizona. I have 4 older brothers, 1 little brother, and 1 little sister. My little sister is my best friend. We love late night talks, Sonic slushes and Taylor Swift. I love social dancing, whether its country swing or the waltz. With four older brothers I love sports. I played tennis for four years in high school. I have two fantasy football teams and a fantasy basketball team. I am currently studying medical laboratory science at Brigham Young University. I hope to someday be like my hero, my dad, and work in the medical field.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the LDS church. Since I can remember, I've known who my Heavenly Father is and what that means to me. Knowing this, has made all the difference in my life. This has helped me realize that life does not end with death, nor begin at birth. Knowledge of my Heavenly Father brings me hope, comfort, and peace. Besides having a Heavenly Father, we have a loving older brother, Jesus Christ. As our Savior, Christ died and was resurrected so that we may one day return to live with God. Christ paid for the sins of the world. Through Christ, we can be forgiven for our sins and become perfect. I'm a Mormon, because this gospel brings me peace and joy. By living the teachings of charity, love, and service, I feel happier.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life after the pattern of our Savior. I'm far from perfect, but by looking to His example, I know that I can become better. Everyday, I read my scriptures. I find comfort in the words of the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I look to the scriptures to find God's words to us today Whether I feel lost or discouraged, happy or grateful, I pray to my Heavenly Father. By communicating with God, I feel his love for me. In high school, I relied on my family a lot. The family is God's central unit on this earth. We were given families to help each other return to God. By continuing to have strong family relationships I feel closer to our Savior.
