Hi I'm Delanie

I am from Idaho. I have grown up working on a farm. My family is everything to me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from high school in 2014. I attended a year of college at a local community college where I studied horticulture. I enjoy the beautiful outdoors. My family is big into atv riding. My favorite thing to do is take my kayak up to the lake and fish for the day. In high school I was required to do a senior project and I chose to go to Ecuador and work in an orphanage for two weeks. It has been so influential in my life; making me grateful for all that I have and completely falling in love with the babies I cared for. I am now preparing to serve a mission for 18 months. I am very excited to be going to serve the people of Texas. I can't wait to share the happiness and love that I feel from my Heavenly Father with the people of Texas.

Why I am a Mormon

My grandpa was a convert to the church a few years after he married my grandma. I contribute my membership in the church to him. He was a strong and faithful member that led his family in the church. My parents are strong active members as well. I was baptized when I was 8. I was truly converted when I finished the Book of Mormon when I was senior in high school. I had prayed to know if what I had read was true and I received my answer. I now know with all my heart that this church is true. I am truly happy because I have the church in my life. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows me personally and it gives me such comfort to continue on through the good and bad in life.

How I live my faith

I have been a part of this church my whole life. I got really involved in my young women's program. We did many service projects that included baking goodies or weeding flower beds for many of the elderly folks in our community. We did Family Home Evenings at the retirement home once a month. When I went to college, I attended the young single adult church. I had a calling to visit teach a couple of the girls in the ward. I loved doing this because I got to know so many new people. Sometimes they'd be short conversations, or long, but they were always meaningful and I could feel my love growing for these sisters.
