Hi I'm Hollie

I grew up in Utah. I love horse riding and archery. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated high school and am looking forward to serving a mission. I love my family and all of the people I am around. My hobbies are horse riding, archery, karate, hiking, mountain climbing, and pretty much anything active. One of the things I enjoy most is visiting some of my elderly neighbors and hearing their amazing life stories. I love this gospel and it brings so much joy to my life! I also have trained as an Emergency Medical Responder. I love medical stuff and helping people. Kids bring me so much joy! Just seeing a kids smiling face changes my attitude completely! These are the things that make me I guess.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Father in Heaven. Through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I have come to understand my Heavenly Father. I love this Church because it has the Book of Mormon. Using this book I have learned things about Heavenly Father and Jesus that I never could have learned using only the bible. I read the bible and it just didn't seem complete to me. It talked about the works of Jesus a bit but didn't capture the full and perfect love of our Heavenly Father. The Book of Mormon completes the feelings that I have had in my heart about Jesus and God. I know that Jesus came down to this earth. I know that he suffered and died so that imperfect people like me can repent and be able to join my family and be with them forever after we have died. I know that my Heavenly Father has a body like mans, but that his is perfect and he loves us so much. He was willing to sacrifice his own son to help us learn and have life. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the church on the earth that has the fullness of the gospel. I know that everyone past present and future are part of my Heavenly family. They all have a loving Heavenly Father watching out for them. He watches and hopes and dreams with them. He cries with them and loves with them. He has always been there. I have been saved so many times by Him, I can't help but feel joy just walking into the church building! I want all of my spiritual brothers and sisters to feel the love of their Heavenly Father. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Every week I attend my church meetings on Sunday. I was called to help young women, I helped plan fun activities and service projects that I hoped would enrich their lives. I also make sure to check up on and visit with people in my ward/neighborhood. It is fulfilling to me to help others in my community. I like to keep an eye out for people in need. Sometimes someone just needs a friendly face to talk to, I try to just listen and be the best friend I can be.
