Hi I'm Olivia

I'm from Utah, but I'm headed to the California Carlsbad Mission on November 1, 2017. I love God and Jesus. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading and taking naps. English is my passion and I want to be an English teacher one day. I love books that make me think and keep me intrigued.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I need to be. I need to feel the love of God and Jesus Christ everyday. I need the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I'm a Mormon because I know this church is true. Through personal prayer and study, I have come to know that God is a physical being and He loves us. Every thing He does is for you and me. I'm a Mormon because I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ; I want to return to them and the LDS church is the only church that contains all of the doctrines, principles, and tools that will bring me back to Them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church for three hours every Sunday. My calling is a Nursery Leader; basically, I party with a bunch of two year olds every Sunday. Their spirits are inspiring; though they are very young, they are loving and filled with innocence and joy. They help me sustain my faith.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

The best way to stop the spread and influence of pornography is to stop the demand for it. Pornography is addictive; there is nothing "freeing" about it. Many pornographic substances are violent and abusive in nature. Pornography is degrading to all human beings and destroys our self respect and susceptibility to tenderness and true love. When we choose, one by one, to avoid pornography, we are decreasing the demand for it and eliminating our chance to become addicted to it. I choose to stand against pornography because I love Heavenly Father. He can help us break our addictions and provide us with true joy and freedom. Show more Show less
