Hi I'm Isabella Vaughn

I'm from Keller, Texas and I'm currently studying Broadcast Journalism at BYU, minoring in Political Science. It's an adventure.

About Me

I love reading. Unbroken, Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, and Anne of Green Gables are some of my favorite books. I enjoy playing soccer, the piano, hiking and movies! But most importantly, I love spending time with my family. Being away at school has made me grow to more deeply love and appreciate them and all they do for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, because this is God's true church on the Earth. Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who restored Christ's everlasting gospel and Jesus Christ is the Savior of each of us. The gospel brings me hope, peace, and many opportunities to serve others and be a part of something greater than myself. It gives me an eternal perspective, it keeps me safe, and it makes me better. The gospel of Jesus Christ has the real power to heal any broken soul, both the physical and spiritual aspects. Christ lightens my burdens, gives me strength during trials, mends my broken heart and changes me when I come unto Him in repentance. I'm a Mormon, because I know He lives and that He loves you and me and all of us.

How I live my faith

The way that I live my faith is by continually putting one foot in front of the other. There are days when I feel like I'm not reaching my full potential, and personally that is one of the most disappointing feelings, not feeling good enough. However, I've learned that no matter how much I try, I can't do it alone. Don't look back at your past failures. We have the atonement of Jesus Christ so that we can keep moving forward. So have faith in the Savior and in His power to change us, to make us better than we were before, and to help us reach our full potential. And just keep moving forward, enjoying life in the moment, and looking up at all of your blessings.
