Hi I'm Paisley

I live in Canada. I love dance, acting and singing. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to act and dance. I especially love Musical Theatre. I really love baking and cooking. One of my favorite things to do is to try new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church.When I turned eight,I was given the choice to be baptized.I talked with my dad and he told me to pray and ask God if this church was true.I went to my room and prayed.I got this feeling that this church was true.I knew that getting baptized was the right decision.Years later,I started having doubts about the church.I started wondering if it really had been a good decision to be baptized.I chose to again turn to my Heavenly Father in prayer.I prayed every night for Him to tell me if this church was the true church.One week for a Young Women activity, we were going to go apple picking.Earlier that week,the Young Women's presidency had decided that it would be good if we had a backup in case the weather wasn't good.They had felt the Spirit telling them that we should visit a woman with cancer.That night,it ended up being super rainy.We went to visit this woman with flowers and a card.We talked for awhile with her and she said she wanted to show us her beehive.The beehive was out on her roof.She took us up with her and told us how her sons were too scared to even go on the roof because of the bees.As soon as she opened the bee box, we all got swarmed.We started swatting at these bees.We ran inside and sat on the couch.We started noticing that something was wrong with the lady we were visiting.She started shaking.Then she blacked out.The other girls and I left the house while the adults took care of her and called an ambulance.We were standing outside when someone suggested we pray.I prayed that all would be well.The woman started responding.We then said a prayer of thanks.The ambulance took the woman to the hospital.We later found out that her hive had been taken over by wasps.She had been stung all over.They day after we went to see her she had been planning to add to the bee box.She would have been stung to death and no one would have noticed.I know that none of these were coincidences and that God was showing me that this church is true.

How I live my faith

In my ward, I am a member of the Young Women program. This is a program where girls 12-18 years old work together and complete goals and serve others. We meet together at church and one evening a week. It is so fun and I have grown really close with the others girls in this program. I have a calling as part of the class presidency. As I complete my calling I know my Heavenly Father is smiling down on me.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Prayer is a great way to increase your Faith. You can pray to ask for opportunities to strengthen your testimony or ask your Heavenly Father if the church is true. The answer may not come right away, but if you are righteous, you will feel his love for you. Show more Show less
