Hi I'm Hope

I grew up Utah, I'm my parents favorite child, I'm serving a full time mission in Omaha, Nebraska, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I am one of 7 children in my family and my siblings are my best friends. I have 3 handsome nephews and 4 beautiful nieces. I love to go camping and be outdoors. I love to travel and see new things. I enjoy a good nap, boating, and all puppies everywhere. I'm currently serving a mission in the Nebraska Omaha Mission. Although I love and miss my family dearly, I love being a missionary and spreading the happy news the Gospel of Jesus Christ brings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is Christ's original church He established when He was here. Even though I was brought up by Mormon parents, there came a time when I had to choose for myself. I knew my parents loved the Lord and lead a happy life because they had the gospel, but was it really all true? I had to read the Book of Mormon and pray to see for myself. I received an answer that it WAS really all true and if we follow the gospel and Jesus Christ, it will bring real and lasting happiness into our lives. That's why I chose to serve a mission! This Gospel makes me so happy that I want everyone else to feel the happiness I do :)

How I live my faith

I live my faith by making the Gospel of Jesus Christ part of my everyday routine. I try each day to rely on my Savior and do what He would have me do. Being a missionary definitely helps me do that. But, before my mission I had the opportunity to teach in the nursery at my church. I got to teach little children about Christ and help them learn. The time I spent teaching them is near and dear to my heart. It taught me so much about leading by example. Christ is our perfect example and we can always look to and follow Him and we will find happiness.
