Hi I'm Sister Grover

I grew up in a small town in Southern Utah. I was raised on a ranch. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am a small-town girl who grew up surrounded by family. I am the oldest in my immediate family, but with all the cousins I have I was treated just like the younger sibling as well. If anyone else is from a small town they know that you make your own fun, and get involved with any activity you can. My main hobbies growing up ranged from riding horses and four wheelers to sewing quilts. In school I participated in basketball, volleyball, FBLA, and FFA. I also raised a pig and steer for our 4H county fair every year I was old enough to participate.

Why I am a Mormon

Many people who do not believe in the Mormon faith claim that Mormon parents brain wash their kids into believing those teachings. However, every single person, young and old has their own agency. We are not forced to live a certain way, but there are blessings that come from heeding the words of prophets both ancient and present. I am a Mormon because I found out for myself that my Father in Heaven loves me and that He sent His only Son to die for me, and because of that I can find the purest joy known to man. I have gone through trials and faced things in this life that I really didn’t think I would get through. And for a while I blamed God and didn’t think I needed Him anymore, but I just couldn’t win. I wasn’t happy. And I am typically a very happy person. I was lost. My parents never forced me back, but I found my way because I could no longer do it alone. Prayer is real. If anyone ever wonders that test it. He will answer, and He is always aware of each and every person. We are all His sons and daughters. So why am I a Mormon? I am a Mormon because I have come to know of the goodness of God. Life is hard, but if you face it with Christ, He will place your burdens on His shoulders and help carry you.

How I live my faith

I have always been very involved in my faith, and was taught at a young age that having faith is more than just saying you believe, but it is acting in a manner that shows others what you believe. There were many girls that are my age who were on my sports teams. We would pray before each game we played and where ever we went we tried to look and act our best. No matter how late we would get back from tournaments we made sure we made it to church every Sunday. And, now, I am working graveyards and I must work Saturday nights and don’t get off in time to go to my own ward, but I make sure I go to any sacrament meeting I can make it to.
