Hi I'm Randee

I grew up in a Merced, California. I'm an art major with a minor in illustration. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Theres nothing much to tell really, I grew up in a relatively small town as the youngest of three daughters. I barely scrapped by in school. I have dyslexia and that always seemed to make things a little bit harder in the learning department. I broke a lot of bones in Middle School (I hadn't really grown into all of my limbs). Luckily that changed in highschool, and I was on the Tennis and Swimming team all four years. I love to draw. It's nothing real special though, at best it's fancy stick figures but I'd love to develop this talent which is why I changed my business major over to Art with an emphasis in illustration. My dyslexia is easier to deal with now and over time one of my weakest classes growing up (english) became my favorite. I've grown up a lot of over the years but the one constant in my life has always been the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church but I don't think that's a good enough reason. Just because you are born in a situation doesn't mean you will stay there. At the age of fifteen or sixteen I started to really gain a testimony for myself. It started when I began to ask questions. I wanted to know if I was in the right place and if this is where the truth was. I found out for myself the answers to those questions and I'm still here. The reason I am a Mormon is because it's the truth and I can't deny that.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith... hmmm that's a good question. I'm supposed to talk about the callings I have in this section but I'm going to talk a little about the calling I just accepted last night. Last night I was set apart as a missionary. This is something that I was never sure I wanted to do. I thought that it took someone stronger to go on a mission and I didn't think that was me. I've realized though that through Heavenly Father weak things can become strong and that if Heavenly Father wants me to go on a mission then that's where I need to be. So how do I live my faith? By trusting in Lord and knowing that wherever I am I won't be there alone. Heavenly Father will be walking beside me the entire time.
