Hi I'm Paige

I am a college student. I am an aspiring nurse. I am a missionary at the Laie, Hawaii Temple Visitors Center. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am the oldest of three children and I grew up in Provo, Utah. I love to spend time outdoors and with family and friends, laughing, and enjoying life together. I am now serving a full time mission in Honolulu, Hawaii! I serve primarily in the visitors center here! I love serving my Father in Heaven in the beautiful islands of Hawaii, and I will continue to do my best to serve with all my heart, might, mind and strength! Aloooooha!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints or nicknamed, "Mormon". I am a Mormon because this is Jesus Christ's true church on the Earth today. I was born into an active Mormon family, but I have had to find the truth on my own. Although I'm not a convert to the church, everyone has their own conversion story where they must decide if they really believe it for themselves. I have come to know for myself that this gospel is the best way for us to feel peace and joy in this life. God truly loves us and we are all His children. I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I've learned that God loves each of us individually, and knows each of us personally and perfectly. I have seen so many blessings occur in my life that only God could make possible. I know that this church really is the true church of Jesus Christ restored again on the earth today, and I feel so blessed to be able to have this knowledge.

How I live my faith

I know that God is my loving Heavenly Father, and that Jesus Christ is my Savior. Because of this, I have left my home, my family and my friends for a year and a half to share the message of Christ's restored gospel. Before my mission, I had many opportunities to serve. I was a Primary teacher for the 4 and 5 year old children in our ward, as well as an assistant Girls' Camp Director for the Young Women! I love that the congregation has so many opportunities for everyone to give service! I love this gospel, and I know that it's true! It's been such a blessing to me, and I love having the opportunity to share it with others as a missionary!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ that takes place from 600 B.C. to 420 A.D. It is about Jesus Christ's life, His teachings, and His example. It is another witness that Jesus Christ really lives, that He was and is God’s Son, and that He loves us. As we follow the example of Jesus Christ, we will be able to receive the blessings that God has promised us. The Book of Mormon concludes with a great promise that those who read it and sincerely pray about it can know by the Holy Ghost that it is true (Moroni 10:4). The Book of Mormon has truly blessed my life, and it has answered a lot of questions that I’ve had in my life. And I know that anyone who reads and prays about it will be able to find answers to their questions too. Show more Show less
