Hi I'm Paige

You can find me hiking up the peaceful Smokey Mountains or playing soccer on Georgia's coast. Oh, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the sweet Southern state of Georgia! I am the youngest of three children. My favorite things to do are hiking, going to the beach, traveling, and listening to The Beatles. I enjoy making others laugh. I was blessed to be born into the church where I have made the greatest of friends. I am leaving in May to serve a mission for the church in the Spain Barcelona Mission. I love the Lord, and I am excited to be his instrument!

Why I am a Mormon

It took me 18 years of my life to realize that I have a testimony of the true gospel. Growing up, I worried about if I was good enough and I let that get to me. I always knew the church was true, I just never cared about it. It took me a while to have a desire of the gospel. In May 2015, I graduated from high school and was planning to attend Georgia State University. During the summer, I was invited to a mission prep course that my Stake offered. There I discovered that God loves me and that he knows that I am enough. It was like a huge punch in the face to be able to feel the Spirit. Even for life long members, there is a true conversion process. The thought of going on a mission came into my head. One night I got on my hands and knees and prayed for guidance. That night, I saw the quote, "Often, the answer to our prayer does not come while we're on our knees, but while we're on our feet serving the Lord and serving those around us." (Uchtdorf) that someone posted on Facebook. I took that as my answer. A few days later, I deferred from college. This is the happiest I have ever been in my life. Now I am ready to go serve the Lord in Spain... and the rest is history! It's a great feeling knowing that God loves me and knows me by name. I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and his Son, I know we have modern day prophets that lead and guide us, and I know the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know this gospel is true! I invite others to pray to know that Heavenly Father loves all his children! 2 Nephi 22:2 "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid; for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also has become my salvation."

How I live my faith

Everyday I try to make God the center of my life. Through my actions and thoughts, I do my best to remember that Heavenly Father loves me and loves His children. This gospel has brought me so much happiness during hard times, so I want to share to others how it can bless them as well.
