Hi I'm Whitney Novotny

I'm from Oklahoma City. I love this life Heavenly Father has blessed me with. Serving in the Utah Ogden Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and have finished my freshman year at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas. My major is Health Promotion and Education. I hope to one day work in a hospital, where I can help others. My parents are both converts and I was raised in the church. I love to play the piano and I play a little guitar. I love to cook, especially desserts! I also love to workout and to progress with my workouts as time goes by. I am a very organized person. I love to clean and keep everything organized in my life. It keeps me sane. I am also serving as a full time missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know for myself that this gospel is true. I was raised in the church and was baptized at the age of 8, where I have continued to strengthen my testimony and expand upon my knowledge. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and that He sent His son to this Earth to atone for my sins and the sins of everyone. I know that Christ never leaves me alone to face my trails, He is always there to help. I know that He will help anyone who prays with a real intent. I know that we have a living prophet here on this Earth that receives revelation from Heavenly Father for this very time period. I believe in the living scriptures and all that it has to offer me and for everyone who truly studies. I love the happiness that I get from living the gospel and from following the commandments. I hope to be a good example to those around me and to bring the happiness that I feel from living the commandments to others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I love to serve and I love to see others happy. I taught the little kids in Primary. To see their bright smiles, big testimonies, and huge hearts, it brings me happiness and strengthens my testimony every Sunday. I exercise my faith by continuing to learn and grow in the gospel so I can share that knowledge and the happiness the Gospel brings me with others, as I serve as a full time missionary in Ogden Utah.
