Hi I'm Ciara

I love music. I love learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy reading, playing the piano and guitar, singing, and going for hikes. My family and I love to participate in 5 K runs and other races. I have gone to college for a little over two years and am studying exercise science. I am going to devote the next year and a half to serving a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has given my life purpose. I know that this life is a time for me to prepare to meet God by doing my best to learn and live the gospel of Jesus Christ everyday. By being faithful to God, I know that God will bless me with eternal life. Jesus Christ is the only way that this is possible. He atoned for all of my sins and experienced all the pain that I ever have and ever will experience so that He can comfort me and strengthen me. I love learning about the Atonement. I know that it is through the Atonement that I am strengthened to persevere through trials, overcome weaknesses and be cleansed from my sin. I am a Mormon because I know that it is through following God's prophet here on the Earth today and living the gospel of Jesus Christ that I can find lasting peace and happiness in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I love sharing and being reminded of the beauty and truth of the gospel through music. I have participated in a couple of choirs in college, and I loved being edified by singing music that shows God my love and appreciation for the blessings that come from the gospel of Jesus Christ. I look forward to participating in a choir again where I can hopefully help others realize how much God loves them. For now, I am preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have prepared to be the best missionary I can be by striving to read the scriptures daily and pray sincerely daily. I feel spiritually strengthened and blessed when I read the scriptures and pray thoughtfully to my Father in Heaven. I know that by doing these small and simple things, I am building a more meaningful and strong relationship with God and my Savior, and I am becoming more like Them.
