Hi I'm Regan

I'm from Provo Utah. I am a missionary in Virginia. I am Mormon.

About Me

I grew up as a dancer and a gymnast. I was also a cheerleader from 7th grade until I graduated high school. Creativity is one of my finest talents and I am studying Interior Design in College. Drawing and painting brings me joy as well as spending time hiking and exploring the outdoors. I am currently serving a mission for the Church in Virginia and I love it. There is no greater joy than the joy that comes from sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with people.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at eight years old. I was born into an active LDS family. As I have grown up going to church with my family my testimony has gotten stronger and stronger. Because I was born into the church I don't have a distinct day or time that I can say I was truly converted to the gospel. My conversion was slow and steady throughout the course of my life. At different times in my life I have faced difficult challenges. I have had to deal with many different trials. It is through some of my hardest days that I have relied on my testimony most and it has grown the most. When I moved away for college I was very homesick and overwhelmed. My relationship really grew while I learned to rely on my relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ during this time when I felt so alone. I know that God knows me personally and he loves me very much. I know that he sent his Son to die for me. I know that Jesus Christ died for me and will always know how I feel and what I am going through. He will never leave me alone. I know that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God and that it was translated by Joseph Smith. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and that he restored this true church on the earth today. Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has changed my life and I am eternally grateful to have this steady truth in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in so many different ways. I am currently serving a mission in Virginia. I live my faith by starting each morning on my knees praying to my Heavenly Father and I end each day back on my knees thanking him for the life I have been given. Throughout those two prayers I strive to bring others unto Christ. I study the scriptures and do my best to be the kind of teacher Jesus Christ would want me to be. I live my faith by trying to be the best representative of Jesus Christ I can possibly be.
