Hi I'm Ariel

I was born and raised in Mississippi. I'm a soon to be missionary and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I'm very artsy. I enjoy drawing, painting, crafts, etc. Reading is my favorite pass time. I have 3 adorable nephews and 1 beautiful niece. I'm a lover of animals and simple joys in life. I placed 8th state wide in The National French Contest, Graduated with honors, and a Mississippi Scholar.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Latter-Day Saints. My parents started taking the missionary discussions in early 1992. I've stayed active because of the love and friendship that I have both with the ward members and with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth in my ward, and I am eager to serve those in need.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Growing up a black woman in the church I can honestly and truthfully say, that everyone is treated the same. My father was the first black bishop, stake presidency council member, and mission presidency council member. There is no limit to what a person can do because of their race. No matter what race or color we are, as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we love and welcome all. Show more Show less
