Hi I'm Lucy

I've lived in Utah my whole life. I work at a School for Special Needs Kids. I am a convert to the Church.

About Me

I have tried piano, clarinet, singing, guitar, sports and many other things that I just didn't ever get the hang of. I thought I was hopeless until I found my job at the school for special needs kids, in the Occupational Therapy department. Day one, I knew I found what I would be doing for the rest of my life. So, I am currently going to school to become a Certified Occupational Therapist's Assistant to work with special needs kids. I thought my life was going pretty darn good and didn't think it could get better... until I met with the missionaries on my 18th birthday and made the decision to get baptized. And its only been getting better!

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be baptized. I've been a Christian all my life, and Ive always been taught to find out what the Lord wants you to do. He has a mission for you and you need to become close enough to him to find out what his mission for you is. While meeting with the missionaries, I had prayed and prayed to find out if the Lord wanted me to be baptized. I never got an answer. So, after thinking long and hard and deciding the pros and cons, I decided that I wasn't going to wait for the Lord to tell me what to do. I WANTED TO BE BAPTIZED. And it wasn't until AFTER Baptism and receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost that the Lord confirmed to me that I had done the right thing! And thus, I learned and fell in love with the principle of free agency. And yes, you need to do what the Lord wants you to do, but He isn't always going to straight up tell you what to do. He wants you to learn and make choices to follow him and to live his gospel. That was one of the whole purposes of coming to this earth, to make the choice to follow him.

How I live my faith

I was baptized shortly after my 18th birthday, and am currently the only person in my direct family who is a member of the church. For a while, I thought I was doing this all on my own. But its not true! Not only do I now have the constant companionship of The Holy Ghost, I also have a ward family. I have sooo many people who are there to help me and do things with me and keep me strong in this Gospel and this Church. Other strong members of the church have been a HUGE help.
