Hi I'm Candice

I grew up in Southern Utah. I enjoy playing percussion, reading, and traveling to new places. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from High School and have chosen to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I played percussion for seven years throughout my schooling, and during that time played in many events and ensembles. I also enjoy reading anything from modern best sellers to classical philosophy and biographies. Some of my favorite authors are C.S. Lewis and Stephen Greenblatt. I love to travel, having had the chance to visit the U.K. twice already I look forward to many more new adventures. I have a younger sister with Down Syndrome who is my "best friend ever". We do everything together and she has taught me a lot throughout the years. By way of fun facts I can say that I have made over 13,000 snocones, having spent the last four years of my life employed at a snocone shop. My passion in life is learning. I love to read or discover new information about the world around me and someday hope to become a professor (probably of classical history) and share my love of learning with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this to be the true church of Christ on the Earth today. I've felt it. I've been able to gain a testimony of it. This is one of the few things that I know for sure, without a doubt in my mind. It's not always easy to say that you know something for sure, but this I know. I've seen the joy that in brings in my own life and in the lives of those around me. To me Christ's gift of the atonement as well as this gospel is the most amazing thing. Truly there has never been nor will there be a greater gift given to us. Because of Him we are able to repent from our past mistakes and go on, drawing ever closer to Him. Our lives will be blessed as we follow His commandments and strive to help and serve those around us. What greater gift could there possibly be than this.

How I live my faith

Throughout the past few years I have held several different callings within our church. I have been able to participate as a youth leader as well as a Sunday School Teacher to six and seven year old children. Though each opportunity to serve is different they all give me a chance to help those around me. I am choosing to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, where I will be serving those around me and helping them to draw closer to Jesus Christ.
