Hi I'm Renae

I grew up in North Carolina. I am serving a mission in Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in North Carolina, and I enjoy reading, exercising, and crafting. I just finished my freshman year at college where I studied computer science. I am now serving my mission in Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel has always played a big role in my life. I grew up in the church, and my parents and leaders have taught me the words and commandments of God my whole life. As I have followed the teachings of Christ in the scriptures I have come to know for myself that this is the true church of God on the earth right now. I have felt of His love and guidance as I have tried to be the person He would have me be. I don't know where I would be without the gospel, it has been such a strength to me as I go through life's hardships and challenges to know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who I can pray to and receive peace and guidance. As I look back each day I can see how God has blessed me in so many ways, even through the smallest things. I have felt joy and peace and the hope of life beyond the grave where I can live again with my family and my God. Ultimately I am a Mormon because it has brought me so much real joy and I know it is the only way I can return to live with my Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to be like Jesus Christ. I am honest and I look for ways to love and serve those around me as He did when He was here on the earth. Living my faith also means putting my trust in a higher place, having the faith that God is aware of me and when He asks me to do something it is because it will help and bless me. This is the very reason why I am now living my faith by sharing the gospel on a mission.
