Hi I'm Whitney

I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah! I love music, theatre, sign language, laughing, & pizza; but above all else- I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I am grateful for every single day and the beauty and new adventure it holds! I am a very happy person and quite honestly just love to laugh and be a little silly! As I said I love music; I am a Vocal Performance major at Snow College, but am taking the next 18 months off so that I can serve an LDS mission. I could not be more excited and am so grateful for this new chapter in my life that is about to begin! My favorite everyday things in life include : coloring, being outside, eating pizza, laughing with (sometimes AT) my family, watching the sunset, quoting movies, singing and dancing around the house, signing, and probably eating!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was very blessed to be born into this church. However, I am my own person and choose to be a Mormon. It's my decision to read my scriptures everyday. It is my decision to go to church-my parents do not force me. It is my decision to live the way I do, and it is my decision to hold dear to the values which I have been taught. I am a Mormon because I know of the truth of this gospel. I know and I have seen how it has changed people's lives (including my own). The love I feel from my Savior is unlike any other. I have the knowledge that no matter what I have done-or will do, he will love me unconditionally. How many times have we felt alone, unloved or like no one understands what we are going through? Jesus Christ is the one who reminds us that we are never alone, we will always be loved and of great worth to him, and that he knows exactly what we are going through or the pain we feel. He is the best friend that each and every one of us needs. If we let him, he will take away our pain, sorrow, and sins. I don't know what I would do without this gospel. The joy I feel from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is absolutely incredible. I would not be the person I am without this church and the other wonderful members who help lift me up. This gospel makes me the happy. It is beautiful and simple: this. gospel. makes. me. happy.

How I live my faith

"By small and simple things are great things come to pass". I live my faith everyday by doing the small and simple thing such as reading my scriptures everyday, saying my prayers, and trying to become like Jesus Christ. On Sundays I have the opportunity attend church with my family and learn things to help me in the upcoming week or even for the rest of my life. "Actions speak louder than words" This is very true when it comes to our beliefs. It is the things you don't say on an everyday basis and things that you do that show who you are. I live my faith by trying a little harder each and every day to become a better person.
