Hi I'm Audrey

I was born in Texas, raised in Alaska. I love being outdoors, fishing, and learning about anything and everything. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love being outside and enjoying the sky while hiking. I have played soccer since I was little and prepping to go on to medical school. I enjoy reading, painting, and drawing, and being hilarious and generally punny. I am attempting to learn Spanish at the moment and pray I'll be more or less fluent within the next year. I know that I have a lot more I want to do in this lifetime and that requires me to go out and work hard. Life is busy, life is tiring, life is exciting, life is a song, and life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS but I explored many different faiths before I came to fully understand Mormonism. I believe all religions have their value. Each is rooted in a belief that there is more than what is tangible, that there is more than what man alone can control. I am a Mormon because I asked God what was right and He answered. I know He does the same for everyone, because He wants the best for us more than anything else. He loves us. I know it and I see it every day.

How I live my faith

I was raised Mormon, but I decided when I was 16 that I couldn't really be a member of this Church without an understanding of the things that came along with it, namely the Book of Mormon. So I read everything I could. I had been in Catholic school for about 9 years, so that, combined with attendance at an LDS church, taught me a lot of the Old and New Testament. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time when I was in high school, and I'm never going to be able to deny the answer I received about it. Several years later, I am serving as a full-time missionary. I've chosen to do this because reading that Book with a real desire to learn changed my life for the better. I didn't understand parts of it, but the feeling I had when I read the last chapter was so overwhelmingly strong that I couldn't mistake it for anything else. I felt real, undiluted joy, which I didn't expect in the slightest. I am serving as a missionary because I believe in Jesus Christ, and moreover I believe that He has a real impact on my life and that God still speaks to and guides humanity simply because He loves us.
