Hi I'm Angela

I'm a student. I love languages. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a university student who is studying French/Education, and when I graduate I hope to be a French teacher or work in a French immersion school. I am also very passionate about other languages and linguistics in general. Other than French, I have a basic understanding of German and I hope to start learning more languages one day as well! I am the oldest of my siblings, I have a step-sister and two half-brothers. My parents were divorced when I was very young, so not all of my siblings are from the same family and live in different cities. The way my family is organized is kind of different and confusing, but I'm okay with that because I love them all the same! I am also a recent convert to the Church, I was baptized at the end of March.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I started to date a member of the church and started to meet with the missionaries. My conversion was made much easier by all of the wonderful people I have met while becoming Mormon. If it weren't for them making the decision to become Mormon would have been a lot more difficult. The missionaries who taught me were very patient with me which really helped! Their patience allowed me to take my time to decide if I wanted to get baptized or not. Also one of the missionaries was a convert himself, so it was really nice to know someone who had the same experiences as I did. There was never one specific event that made me decide to join the church, but rather many small things that helped me make my choice to convert. I once heard someone compare gaining a testimony to a sunrise. It doesn't happen all at once, but slowly. And that is how I feel about my testimony in the church. I know I made the right choice in joining the church, but my confidence in that choice didn't just happen over night.

How I live my faith

Getting baptized has been a huge part of how I live my faith. I had a few concerns before I joined, but the missionaries invited me to take a leap of faith and get baptized. I am incredibly happy I did, because of this "leap of faith", I've noticed so many wonderful things have been happening it doesn't even seem real. Besides getting baptized, I attend church weekly and try to live by my faith in everyday life.
