Hi I'm Millie

I grew up in Alaska. I love being active and discovering new adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family is my life. I am attending college as an athlete--a swimmer. I love reading and writing. Music is a passion of mine, both creating it myself and listening to the expressions of others. I love spending my time in God's beautiful creations and discovering new places. I love the mountains, the oceans, and any other place outdoors. Rock climbing, kayaking, and boating are one of the many places you can find me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace and joy that is found only in living the Gospel found in Christ's true and living church. I have been transformed by this doctrine and commandments that are found here. I know without any doubt in my mind that God desires for me to be happy and I have found it in this religion. I had an experience while camping with a group from my church. After nightfall, we all sat in a circle and listened to a recording of Christ's last moments on this earth. That night was a defining factor in my life. I was blessed with the knowledge from the spirit that Christ was the Savior of this world. He cares about me and loves each and every one of us perfectly. I knew that I needed to follow His word and convert myself to this church, His gospel. I needed to follow His commandments and His prophets that are on this earth today. Ever since that moment, I have tried my hardest to be a representative of Christ. I have not regretted that decision even once in my life and will continue to do so for the rest of my existence. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

This life is a gift from our Heavenly Father who has blessed us with many opportunities. Becuase of this beautiful truth, I spend each and every day living to be God's hands, feet, and mouth. I express my personal commitment to Him by being an example to others, praying every day to be directed by His will, and living the commandments spoken by the scriptures and His living prophets today. I would be nowhere without Him and I am determined to make every moment something that He would be proud of.
