Hi I'm Genevieve

I grew up in Utah and recently graduated from college. I'm now serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest in a family consisting primarily of girls. Our home was always filled with fast-paced conversations and laughter. We were always encouraged by our parents to ponder life deeply and to live our lives with the full integrity of our beliefs. Because of this I love to read great books, to write contemplatively, and to discuss all manner of things with others. I found this has served me well in obtaining my Bachelor's (which I recently earned with a degree in History and a minor in Latin) and in always finding something new and interesting in the world and in the people around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from multiple generations of faithful Mormons and such a heritage as hugely influenced my faith. But as I have traveled the world and as I studied history in an academic setting with professors and other students of all faiths and backgrounds, I have found my faith has enlarged with my world view. I can't profess to understand all the workings of either the world or the Gospel, but I have always found answers to my questions through the Gospel and especially through prayer. Most importantly to me, belonging to this church and being an active member has provided me with support and stability regardless of the conflicts or confusions around me.

How I live my faith

I am serving an eighteenth month mission and hoping that in doing so I can share with others the overall happiness of the Gospel and the light it has brought me all throughout my life. I'm starting my mission a little later than most girls do, but I decided to dedicate this time at this point in my life because of how strongly I do feel God's love for me. I want to share these feelings of peace, happiness, and direction to all who seek them. Being a Mormon is all about the daily attitudes and habits, and while I'm an imperfect representation of my faith, I do have a perfect faith that for those who seek to live the Church's precepts, there is happiness in their hearts and direction in their lives.
