Hi I'm Bethany

I grew up in Utah and am serving as a full-time missionary in the Portugal Porto Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Utah all of my life. I am the youngest of ten kids. I love playing tennis, running, reading, watching movies, baking cookies, and being outside. I love spending time with my family and friends. Before serving a mission, I studied at Brigham Young University and plan on continuing studying there when I come home.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it bring me so much joy. I grew up in a Mormon family and as I got older and started to make decisions for myself regarding the church, I realized how much I loved being a part of it and how it blessed my life every day. Being a Mormon doesn't mean my life is easy, but it gives me hope that things will always work out and that I have a Heavenly Father who knows me and loves me. I know that even when I make mistakes, I can be forgiven through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Most importantly, I am grateful to know that I can be with my family forever. I am a Mormon because I feel in my heart every day that the gospel is true. I love it and I would not want to live my life without it.

How I live my faith

I love being a part of the LDS church. I live my faith by going to church every week to take the sacrament and renew my covenants. I try to visit the temple as often as I can and do my best to lift and serve those around me and fulfill my church callings. I try every day to be the best I can be and am always striving to become more like the Savior.
