Hi I'm Ariana Hess

I grew up in California and later moved to Utah. I'm currently serving a mission in the Argentina Salta Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Before leaving on a mission I was attending college as a Pre-Nursing student and plan on getting my RN when I get back. I'm the oldest of five siblings and one dog. My hobbies include reading, being outdoors and drawing.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason I'm a Mormon is pretty simple, I believe in the faith and our Lord Savior, Jesus Christ. I was born into the LDS Church, but there came a time where I had to decide for myself what I really believed. After much thought and prayer I re-affirmed my beliefs and continued on as a Mormon. My conversion story is certainly plain, but my faith is strong. It is my firm testimony that the LDS Church is true church and can lead us back home to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

In my YSA (young single adult) ward, I was called as a Relief Society teacher and an Indexer. During the second hour of church I would Index or help people with family history, and during the third hour I'd help teach the women on that week's topic.
