Hi I'm Olivia Helton

I grew up in Des Moines, Iowa. I am a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student and future Missionary in Spain Barcelona. I play rugby and the violin. I find most joy in being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that there is a Creator of the world and an exalted being that created me. I have felt his love. He loves every human and creation more than we can comprehend. I know that He is living and that my Heavenly father sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay for my sins so I can live with him and my family again after death. I know this to be true through study, pondering, prayer, and most importantly by the Spirit. I love my Heavenly Father. As I strive to be like him, I feel him draw closer and closer to me. I am a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and know that this is his true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my calling as a 4-5 year old primary teacher and through visiting teaching. I love to serve those around me and am counting down the days till I report to the MTC!

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

The Mormon lifestyle if filled with joy. I am joyful because of my knowledge of a greater being and for my purpose on this earth and what happens after this life! The mercy, love, and grace that is our Heavenly Father gives me more joy than I can say! As I sacrifice worldly things, substances, and habits to follow Jesus Christ's example, I am filled with happiness and fulfillment. I live with purpose!! Show more Show less
