About Me

I currently live in Birmingham England, 18 years old and from a family of five... on February 1st 2018 I head out to South Africa Johannesburg MTC where I'll then go on to Serve a full time mission in Durban. The top things to know about me are: * I always love to have a good laugh with others and have fun. * I also happen to be a big fan of Superhero films. * Love dancing. * Food makes me happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I simply believe and genuinely know that the things I have been taught are true. Although being a Mormon can sometimes be very hard and challenging, I could never trade it for anything in the world because it really is a guide to a much happier and better life. I Just know in my heart that I wouldn't have peace without the Gospel because I wake up each day feeling thankful to God that I am alive and well, I wake up each day feeling full of positivity and full of the Holy Spirit. I wake up each day Knowing that I have a purpose. from living the Gospel, the experiences I've had are truly indescribable and the blessings are immeasurable. I am a Mormon because I know that Joseph Smith really was a true Prophet called of God who restored the true Gospel here on the earth. I know without a shadow of a doubt that ALL things in the Book of Mormon are true and Testify of Christ and has brought me closer to God in more ways than I could ever imagine. I know and Testify that my Saviour Jesus Christ Lives and loves me and I also Testify that I have a Loving Heavenly Father who created me and loves me too with all His heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sticking closely to the things that I have been taught while growing up in the Gospel. Three of the things that have definitely helped me a lot in my life to stick closely to the gospel time and time again, have been reading the Book of Mormon, attending Church each week and constant prayer because all three of these things have blessed me in my life more than I could ever imagine, has protected me, helped me to feel the Holy Spirit and positivity in my life and has especially blessed me with so much peace and joy which has furthermore strengthened my Faith and Testimony In my Saviour Jesus Christ. In Living my faith, I have also enjoyed developing long lasting friendships and connections with friends from the gospel and attending church activities because it has deepened my faith and has helped me enjoy the social life and strong community within the Gospel.
