Hi I'm Moriah

I grew up near Independence, Missouri. I'm a Brigham Young University student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Photography student at Brigham Young University. I adore reading, writing, Star Wars, Marvel, fairy tales, Arthurian legends, Star Trek, Stargate, Doctor Who, and anything nerdy. xD

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it is the only true church, established by Jesus Christ. I was born to parents who are strong members of the church and who are very knowledgeable about the gospel of Christ. I grew up being taught by them. However, as my parents would agree with loving exasperation, I have always had a mind of my own. And one of the many reasons why I know that this gospel and this church are true is because you are told to ask questions! All my life I have always enjoyed learning and asking questions. And in the gospel, we are not merely allowed to learn and asked questions, we are encouraged! And if none of us know the answer, Heavenly Father will answer our questions in various ways as long as we are prepared to live by the answer He gives. I know this is true because I have the entire history of my life to prove it. If I had a question that no one around me knew the answer to and I kept on asking Heavenly Father to provide me with it, He would bring new people, or experiences, or meanings to scripture into my life to answer the question as long as I was ready and willing to live by the answer. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he gave and is giving his entire life so that we, mankind, can be a united family once more as long as we are willing to accept the help Christ so tenderly supplies. I know this from the scriptures that He has given us and from the prophets and apostles He has given us and will continue to give us. I know that this gospel, His gospel is true because I can feel the Holy Ghost testify of its truthfulness in my heart. I know His gospel is true because I have lived by it all my life and know of the goodness that it brings my life, peace and joy that I could receive no other way than through Christ and His gospel.

How I live my faith

I recently served a proselyting mission in Nevada, Las Vegas. I love the gospel and I want to share the peace and joy the gospel brings to my brothers and sisters.
