Hi I'm Whitney

I'm from Southern California. I love tennis, the outdoors, and the ocean. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a student at Brigham Young University who deferred to serve a mission. I am majoring in electrical engineering, and I love playing tennis. I love to travel and explore the world. I live right next to the mountains, and I'm constantly hiking and exploring the world around me. I love being out in the sun and admiring the scenery around me, but I also love learning. The challenge of engineering draws me in. My motto is "live with a relentless pursuit of better", and that is how I strive to live my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it is the truth. I know without a doubt that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, and its teachings are the best thing that has happened in my life. It leads me to be happier, and to see the good in all that is around me. Without the gospel in my life, I would be a pessimistic, cranky human being. It has the power to change you into the best person you can be, and it always will uplift you. I love this gospel with my whole heart, and I am so glad that I found out for myself the power that comes with learning and living it for yourself. I would not waste a year and a half of my life serving a mission if this were not the true church.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by following the little promptings I get from my conscience. Since Heavenly Father cannot speak to us physically, He works through the Holy Ghost. And as we listen to and heed the Holy Ghost, the Lord will trust us. He will be able to trust that will listen to what He prompts us and that we will act on those promptings. As that trust is built, He will guide us even more. That is amazing that a member of the Godhead, or the Holy Ghost can help us. It is such a blessing, and we can be so much stronger because of that.
