Hi I'm Aubrey

My hometown is St.George, Utah. Future architect. I seek for adventures on the daily! Most importantly... I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Just finished my first year of college. I live for the outdoors! Nature, plants, creatures you name it! That's been the coolest part of living in Southern Utah, IT IS BEAUTIFUL! For work, I transport troubled teens for a wilderness therapy program and am also a referee. If you haven't heard of pickleball, look it up! I play pickleball competitively it's the life! I always carry my ukulele on my back, looking for opportunities to make folks smile!

Why I am a Mormon

From the day I was born, my parents began raising me in the ways of the church. Living in Utah the normal is to be raised up in the church. In other words, I knew nothing but the church so therefore it made complete since to follow because that was comfortable to me. However, there comes a day when one begins to ask themselves, is this true, why am I going to church, and why am I following these guidelines? Though these questions arose in the early teens, through constant seeking for knowledge, praying to God, good chats with parents, and reading the Book of Mormon, I began to build "my" little testimony into MY own testimony of the Savior. After all, the only way to be permanently happy is to invest in permanent/eternal things, such as families and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I've felt infinite peace and joy though living the gospel, and that's what makes it worth it for me.

How I live my faith

I've decided to put adventure, school, and all my loved ones on hold for the greater cause of serving a mission. I head out to serve in the Philippines Laoag Mission on July 19, 2017 and I couldn't be more excited. My dear mother and I teach the youth and love their sweet spirits combined with a hint of attitude. Being the oldest of four, I strive to be an example to my younger siblings and constantly attempt to find ways to make them laugh! What's life without a little laughter! Most importantly, I try my very hardest daily to live as our Savior, Jesus Christ did by being that kind, patient, humble person that people enjoy being around!

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

At age 9 I had set up and ran my first successful neighborhood lemonade stand. I came home overjoyed and ran to find my dad in the kitchen. I slammed my money jar on the table confidently to show Dad the success of my day! He gave me a solid hi-five and as I ran off he asked if I had thought about paying tithing. I began to whine to him about giving up 3 dollars of my first 30 dollars earned for tithing. What difference could my 3 dollars possibly make? My father then shared his wisdom on tithing that changed my perspective forever. He explained, "Our main purpose here on this earth is to find ways to show God how much we love him. Paying tithing, no matter the amount, is an important way we can express our love and gratitude for the Savior." Constantly keeping that bigger picture in mind has always made it worth while to pay tithing; no matter what the circumstances. Show more Show less
