Hi I'm Valerie

I love science, music, and life! I'm currently serving as a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying Medical Laboratory Science, but I'm putting my education on hold for 18 months so that I can serve people in Washington! I play the cello, and I love music. Learning and creating new things are my favorite things to do. I love crocheting, embroidery, reading books, playing video games, and spending time with people I love including my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God loves me and has a plan for me. My life would be full of so much anxiety and fear if I didn't know that I could trust God and follow His word. His gospel brings me so much peace, and I am joyful because of it. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book. It contains the word of God and has guided my life. The words contained inside it are inspired and have always given me answers to my questions, and I have prayed about it and received a witness for myself that it is true. My life is centered on my faith, and I would not be able to live without the guidance I receive from God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by choosing to serve others and study God's word. When I was attending school I had the opportunity to serve my community by arranging activities for the students to have fun and get to know each other. Now I'm currently choosing to put aside my life for a year and a half so I can teach other people about what I believe. Living what I believe brings a lot of happiness to my life, and I want other people to be able to experience the same happiness so I am choosing to teach and serve others.
