Hi I'm Regan

I'm a book-worm, singer, and leader. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I like playing to compete in any type of games: sports, card games, board games, charades, etc. I was co-captain of my basketball team and President of our FFA club. I love helping people get better! Seeing the look on their faces after they see how much they have done, is priceless. That is why I took leadership positions in my school, I wanted to help others reach their full potential! I like to read! My favorite genres are Fantasy and Science Fiction. Reading takes me to another world and it is just so cool! I also like to sing and act. Performing in plays is a lot of fun and I get to make friends with a variety of people. My favorite play that I performed in was The Wizard of Oz: I played Dorothy. What I love most about The Wizard of Oz is how everyone can relate to the small country girl. In this world, we sometimes get discouraged and frustrated. We decide to run away from either our problems, people, or just life in general. Things seem to spiral out of hand, and we just want the peace and safety of home. After much hard work, dedication, discipline, and effort, we find that we have the power! We can all go home! I am a missionary because I want others to know that they too have the power to return to their home in heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness and hope it brings into my life. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know for a surety that this is God's church. It brings me joy, comfort, happiness, and an overwhelming peace. What I love most about this church, is that it focuses on families and togetherness. Everyone loves each others and cares for each other, no matter what! We are all God's children. When things get hard, I know I can rely on my Heavenly Father. I know he cares about me and answers my prayers. I know that Jesus Christ performed the Atonement for me so that I can return to my Father in Heaven. I have felt the grace of God in my own life and I know he cares about all of his children. I know the Holy Bible to be the Word of God. I also know the Book of Mormon to be the Word of God. I cannot deny what I know to be true. I continue to follow His gospel because it makes me happy. I know that this is what I am supposed to do and what I am supposed to be. I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be the best me I can be. Everyday I want to improve from the day before. I live my faith by having it radiate around me. I serve others in my community and help set-up activities. I am in a church choir. Singing is one manifestation of faith. The words we sing are so beautiful and testify of what we know to be true. Doing what is right, no matter the circumstances, is another I live by my faith.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Increasing our faith in Jesus Christ requires small trust building experiences. One can increase his or her faith in Jesus Christ by believing in him, worshipping him, and loving him. Sometimes it takes one blind step of faith to have the light be shown unto you. Prayer always increases faith. Small bits of effort is all that is needed to strengthen faith. Being obedient to God's teaching and following his commandments increase faith. I know that after a trial of faith, faith will increase, and one will receive a witness of his or her faith.
