Hi I'm Bethanne

Soon to be a Missionary in Honduras. I believe that everyone needs to know that God loves them, individually. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a super "average" girl, trying to be something greater than average! I am the oldest of 3 wonderful sisters. I recently finished my 3rd semester at a nearby community college. I love country swing dancing, backpacking, hiking, and pretty much anything that has to do with water. I have a huge fear of rollercoasters, spiders, and big dogs. I was on a swim team for about 6 years. I ran track for 2 years in high school, mostly to hang out with my wonderful friends who are now serving missions or becoming even more brilliant in college. I am very passionate about respect and not judging people for how they live your life. I am much more interested in why they live their life the way they do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this gospel contains real happiness and it is made with real love. I do not go to church because my parents tell me to, because they don't. I don't go to church because it is what is expected of me and I don't want to let people down. I go to church, and I am a Mormon, because this gospel is one of the only things in the world that gives me real, true, unconditional happiness and hope. I am a Mormon because I believe that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God, I believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, and I know the Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God today. I am a Mormon because I believe in everything that this gospel has taught me so far but, I also know that God is there and that he loves each and every one of us. Because of this knowledge, it just makes sense that he would want us to return to live with him, and that he would create a plan for us to return to him. This plan is taught to us in the gospel, I feel that it is of God. I am a Mormon because I know that God loves me, and because of this gospel I can find my way back to him.

How I live my faith

I am about to go on a mission to Honduras. I live my faith by trying to be the most Christian person that I can be. I really make an effort to show my appreciation and my respect to the people who are around me. I think it is important to build people up in this world that is constantly tearing you down. I also live my faith by studying the scriptures and praying to my Heavenly Father frequently.
