Hi I'm Bonnie

I grew up in rural Utah. I love sports and the outdoors. I enjoy science and math. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University studying mathematics. I love it here and I enjoy learning and applying myself. I am the youngest of six children. I love my big family: they are everything to me. I am very goal oriented and am a bit of a perfectionist. I love everything outdoors. I would prefer to always be up in the mountains. In high school I played soccer and I am a school record holder in track. I also was part of student government, the debate team, math team, service clubs, and the band. I love meeting new people and sharing ideas with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my church, more than I can express. It has brought me more joy than anything else. It gives me hope when I have nothing else to go on. I believe in a loving God who knows my name. He listens to me when I pray. He cares about my successes and failures. I love Him and I know He is there. I devote my life to His service. Through the church I have learned that we continue to live after we pass from this life. We can see our loved ones again forever and live in happiness. I can't imagine how I could live if I didn't know I could see those I have lost again. This church has made me the person I am today. The truths I have learned have shaped who I am. I love the person it is helping me become.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I love to serve others. Growing up I was always encouraged to reach out to those around me. I completed many projects with my family in effort to help others who were struggling. Now at college I have responsibilities in my church. Every month, I visit some of the girls that attend my ward to share a message of hope with them. I am their friend and they know I am always willing to talk or help them in any way. I am also on a committee to help people in our ward feel welcomed in our ward while they are so far away from their families. I love helping these students. It makes it easier for me to be apart from my own family when I can be a part of making my peers happier.
