Hi I'm Beka Haderlie

I grew up in Utah. I help run an Instagram account called 'LDSthought' where I get to share my testimony every day. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah and am called to serve in the Alabama Birmingham mission! I love hiking, rock climbing and swimming! I love traveling to new places and experiencing new cultures. In my spare time I help run the Instagram account 'LDSthought' with two of my best buddies where I get to share spiritual thoughts whenever I want.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was raised in an LDS home, I've never known anything but Mormon culture. But as I've gotten to travel around and peek into different cultures and lifestyles, I've found that one thing set's Mormon's apart from the rest: true and lasting happiness. To have a connection with God through prayer and divine revelation received through modern day prophets and a complete set of scriptures is what makes us happier than ever. I know the truth, and that which I do not know, I can pray about and learn for myself. Following the commandments brings apparent happiness that I see in my everyday life, and I've seen it in other's as they introduce the gospel's teachings into their lives.

How I live my faith

I'd say the best way I live my faith is through service. I have had the opportunity to do a lot of local service in my Utah community as well as international service in central Africa. I am about to head out to 18 years of serving people in the best way possible, by giving them knowledge of the true and living church on the Earth today. Our LDS church. :)
