Hi I'm Aubree Ward

I grew up in Sandy, Utah. When I was 11 I moved to New Canaan, CT. I study at Brigham Young University in Provo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play volleyball in my free time. I'm studying at BYU in Provo, Utah. I grew up in Sandy, Utah but moved cross country when I was 11 to New Canaan, Connecticut. I received my mission call and am currently a representative of this wonderful church. I am serving in the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission and I'm very excited!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because of the sweet spirit of peace, joy, and the promise of eternal happiness that it brings. I love to go to church and go to the temple because I can feel the difference it brings to my life. Without this church, I have felt lost and confused. I felt like my purpose in life was blurred. When I decided to re-dedicate myself to this gospel, I noticed an immediate turn around. I was happy. I was willing to serve. This faith gives me an opportunity to be my whole and true self. It shows me what kind of potential I have to become something great through Jesus Christ. I have a powerful testimony in Christ. He is our Savior and he loves us each individually. Through his stripes we are healed. I know that this Church is true and I know that anyone who wants to can search the scriptures and ask with real intent and receive the same feelings. Everyone has the ability to feel the Spirit and have it testify to you of the truthfulness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in ward or stake service activities. In my home stake we were given the privilege of going to the Rockaways in New York and helping to clean up after super-storm Sandy. It was an amazing experience to see how grateful these people were for the meager help that we were able to provide. In my YSA ward I am called as a Relief Society Instructor and have the privilege to prepare and teach lessons once a month. It's a very inspiring calling, and I have loved teaching and learning from my Relief Society women. I have dedicated myself to serving a full time mission and have been called to the Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission.
