Hi I'm Heather

Called to serve as a missionary in Montréal Canada. I love life, yoga, sunshine, and rice. Happy to say that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors and the beautiful world around us. I'm a fan of hiking, camping, boating, and traveling so as to experience the world around us. I love different cultures and people. I love to do yoga. I love music and am always singing. I love the sound of the guitar being played around the campfire. I am a lover of s'mores and rice. I love to cook. I am a blogger and I love to write. I am an artist. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Canada Montréal Mission. I am striving to learn French and I adore the French language and people. Before my mission, I spent a year at Snow College in Ephraim, Utah. I hope to study Family Life at Brigham Young University. I hope to be a marriage and family therapist and to help other families realize the importance of love and unity within their family. The family is so important to me, and I hope one day to be married and sealed to my own eternal companion. I hope to raise a family and have a marriage united under the Lord. I have aspirations for this life, but mostly I plan to be a faithful follower of Christ. I have a testimony of his gospel and want to forever be an example in bringing others to know of these things.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always had a desire to believe that God is real and to have a testimony for myself. At fifteen I began to question the testimony I'd been raised to have. I was born a Mormon, so never had a defining moment of conversion. I always went to church and lived the gospel because it was what my family did and what everyone expected. But at fifteen I really wanted to know. I wondered how I could really know the gospel was true. Was there really any proof? But I had such a desire to know and I wouldn't just forget the things I'd been raised to believe without testing their truth. I studied the Book of Mormon repeatedly. I read it cover to cover. I really sought to understand and I really prayed to know of its truth. I applied myself in my Miamaid and Laurel class callings. I did all I could to know for myself. The spirit did tell me these things were true. Not in a way I can explain or in a way that I can prove to anyone else. But the spirit has manifested to me in ways stronger than any visible force. I know these things are true. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings peace and that the atonement is real. The gospel is my source of joy in this life. I love life because of this gospel that gives me so much hope and reassurance. The gospel is my strength and confidence. I wouldn't be who I am without the role of the Savior in my life. I wouldn't have the same peace and happiness about me if not for the spirit brought as I read the Book of Mormon and pray to my Heavenly Father. I've studied, pondered, and prayed for myself. I have felt the strength of the spirit's confirming witness. I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored and that this is his church. I'm a Mormon. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. And I'm so happy to claim that title.

How I live my faith

I go to church every Sunday. It's been humbling to accept callings that I have felt inadequate to accept. In my student ward I was given callings I felt completely inadequate to fulfill. While these callings were a stretch for me, I did my best in them and tried to understand why I had been called to that calling. Whatever my calling, I do my best to fulfill what I've been called to do. I try to reach out to those in need of extra love, service, or friendship. I strive to be a friend and to show that I do have a testimony. I'm not perfect. I don't do a perfect job at my callings and I don't always make perfect comments at church. But I do my best and strive to humble myself enough that my Savior can do with me what he will as I try to serve him.
