Hi I'm Darcy

I grew up in Oceanside California. I'm a music lover. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Darcy I am the only girl in a family of five very tall basketball playing boys. Although I have been a Southern California girl my whole life and lived 10 minutes from the ocean, I have never been surfing! When I'm not going to school I usually spend a lot of my time at the beach with friends, reading, or doing something that involves art. I played soccer all throughout High school and love the game! My junior year I joined a Steel Drum Ensemble where I was a part of an amazing musical program that fostered my love for music. Since then I have been accepted into and am attending BYU where I am still trying to figure out what I want my major to be!

Why I am a Mormon

My membership in the church began when I was very little and I starting going to church because my parents told me that's what we did. As I grew up in the church and learned more about the gospel I began to love it and believe for myself. Being a member was no longer something I did because my mom told me to, but because I chose to. I have felt a confirmation of the truthfulness of the gospel and have had many experiences that reinforced my belief in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Living the gospel has brought me a happiness I couldn't find anywhere else and has blessed me beyond request! I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ I can live with my family forever, be forgiven of my sins and live with God one day if I have the faith!

How I live my faith

From the time I was 12 I was a part of a great group of young women and had leaders in my church who taught me how to serve others and be an agent for good! I was a family history consultant for 3 years where I worked to help others learn more about their family heritage and to complete their genealogy. When I was 16 I became the president of my church youth group and learned to plan events and activities.
