Hi I'm Genevieve

I'm the third child of ten children. I'm a wife of a philosopher. I'm majoring in the art of theater. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up as the third child of a total of ten children, the ages range from 21 years to 10 months. There are 7 girls and 3 boys! My parents are the hardest working people I have ever met, as you can guess why. Growing up in a big family has taught me the best lessons in life. I love theater!! Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would pursue theater as a career. After attending a basic stagecraft class at my university (and praying a lot) I decided that this was what I should study! My goal is to work for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after my future children are grown. I have to mention my wonderful husband, he is studying philosophy which has brought me more wisdom and knowledge than I could have ever imagined, I'm so blessed to have him! He is the kindest, most talkative, and patient man I have ever met in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My testimony of this church did not come in a moment of realization, it came in hours upon hours of studying The Book of Mormon, The Bible, The Doctrine and Covenants, and The Pearl of Great Price and in learning about my Savior. It came in getting on my knees each night praying to my Heavenly Father in faith, hoping that someone was there listening. It came in attending and striving to do learn more in my early morning seminary class and sunday school class. It came in mistakes made and using and feeling the Atonement work in my life. I'm a Mormon because I have seen this gospel work, and I have gained a testimony of its truthfulness inch by inch.

How I live my faith

I live my faith. Everyday. I desire to show in my everyday actions, appearance, communication, etc. that I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This is where prayer came in when choosing my career path. Theater can be a very faith destroying and standard lowering career, but it can be an uplifting and faith building path if done prayerfully and righteously. I prayed a lot because I didn't want to choose a career that would constantly be putting me into temptation, but I've been told by the Spirit that as long as I choose the right (even when it's awkward or hard) I will be blessed and will help those around me choose the higher road. Keeping to my standards and lifting others up is what I want to do and choose to do everyday.
