Hi I'm Heidi Herr

I grew up in Kauai, studies at BYU, currently serving as a full time missionary in the Washington Everett Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a lover of the outdoors. I grew up on an island where I spent hours running in the sun, basking in the sunlight on the beach, hiking, surfing, camping, and dancing. Being the only girl in my family, I am surrounded by 5 protective brothers and loving parents. My brothers have set the example of Christlike service as they served full time missions and inspired me to do the same. One of my passions include learning and reading, which has inspired me to dream of becoming a high school teacher. I am currently serving as a missionary in the Washington Everett mission, loving every day. I am striving to become more like Christ and seeing others as He seems them. Laughter and Christ carry me through those tough times as I look for the Lord's hand in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it's the only way to live, only religion, and only church that brings everlasting happiness. I grew up in a Mormon family but truly found my testimony in my teenage years. We all face many challenges that come with adolescence and I truly found my self-confidence through the Savior. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is Christ's restored gospel on the earth. The Book of Mormon is God's word and fills me with the spirit as I strive to grow closer to Christ. I'm thankful for the way my parents raised me and for the knowledge of my savior that I learned on my own. He lifts. He lives. He loves. As I turn to the Lord, trust Him, and testify of His power, I am filled.

How I live my faith

Prior to my mission, I lived my faith by striving to live up to the standards that the Lord has set for His children. I found satisfaction by serving the women in my ward and teaching Sunday school. But I find more satisfaction as I serve the Lord 24/7 as a missionary. The Lord helps me to teach His gospel and place me in the path of those who need to be filled as I am filled. A smile here, some painting there, I strive to serve all of God's children in any possible way.
