Hi I'm Victoria

I grew up in Northern Nevada. I love to explore the great outdoors and learn new things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very curious person by nature. I love to be outdoors and see new things and meet new people. I am also an avid reader and love to learn about anything new or interesting. One of my favorite hobbies is to write. I write all the time about everything and anything. One of my dreams is to become an author and travel the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because I know it is the true and everlasting church of God. I have been able to grow up in this wonderful gospel and I never want to leave it. Throughout my life, I have witnessed enough tender mercies and felt His spirit enough times to know that this is where He wants me to be. I know that our Father in Heaven loves each and every one of us more than we can understand and wants us to follow the example of His son Jesus Christ. It is through Christ that we find peace, safety, and true happiness. Because of the restoration of the gospel through the prophet Joseph Smith, we have the Book of Mormon which contains a fullness of the truth of God. It is through the Book of Mormon that I have been able to find peace and comfort during times of loneliness and uncertainty. I am truly grateful for God's love for us and for all He has provided us that we may have joy and direction throughout our lives.

How I live my faith

I go to my weekly church meetings and try to participate in my sunday classes as much as possible to help promote meaningful discussions about the gospel. When given a calling or an assignment within my various church youth groups, I try to find ways to invite the spirit in ways that are both fun and uplifting. I also enjoy going to activities within my ward and offering my help wherever needed.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is an ancient record of God's dealings with the people living in the Americas. Like the Bible, it contains God's word and serves as another testament to His truth. In John 10:16 we read that Christ has "other sheep...which are not of this fold" that He must go and visit. These "other sheep" are the people written about in the Book of Mormon. Show more Show less
