Hi I'm Faithful

I love living in Colorado. I love art. I love Jesus Christ and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student studying Child Development/Family Sciences and Art. I will be serving as a full-time missionary in the California Los Angeles mission. I enjoy skiing, cooking, photography, scuba-diving, painting, travel, music, animals, hiking, and spending time with my crazy family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives me purpose! The fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ brings light and confidence into my life. It allows me to overcome hardships I have faced because I know I am not alone. I know that God is aware of each of us personally. He loves us perfectly and has provided a way to live with Him again. Being a Mormon is so fun! The best part is that it is not a temporary fun, but a joy that is lasting. One of my favorite scriptures in the Book of Mormon is Alma 26:16. "Therefore, let us glory, yea, we will glory in the Lord; yea, we will rejoice, for our joy is full; yea, we will praise our God forever. Behold, who can glory too much in the Lord? Yea, who can say too much of his great power, and of his mercy, and of his long-suffering towards the children of men? Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel." That is how I feel about this gospel. Jesus Christ is the ultimate light and joy, such a joy I cannot even say the smallest part which I feel!

How I live my faith

Growing up with many friends who have different religious backgrounds than myself, I learned the importance of trying to be a good example. I learned that people always remember the way we treat them and how we live what we believe. One thing that really helped me live my faith was being open with my friends and helping them feel free to ask questions. We would be involved in projects in the community together, which was the best way to put our beliefs into action!

What is the Book of Mormon?

Similarly to the Bible, The Book of Mormon teaches of Jesus Christ and His gospel. It is another testament that God has always had a plan for His children. It teaches how we can become closer to God by following His commandments. I leave those who read it with the invitation to pray to know of its truth. Show more Show less
