Hi I'm Monica Goodell

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah and I've been a Mormon my whole life. I love this church.

About Me

I am a college student. I went to school at BYU-Hawaii for one semester, now I am currently serving an LDS mission. When I come home, I hope to get into the University of Utah and eventually get into their nursing program. I had the opportunity last summer to go on a humanitarian trip to Zimbabwe with my parents and one of my sisters. It was an amazing experienced that changed me for the better and that I will never forget. Hands down, my favorite activity is boating on a lake. I could spend all day, every day through the summer on a boat. Ice cream is my weakness...I just can't say no! I love my life and everything that comes with it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons, but maybe the most important reason is because of the hope this gospel brings into my life. It gives me direction and a purpose in my daily life. I am a different person because of the things I've learned being a member of this church. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It brings a measure of peace unlike anything else I have ever read. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have had multiple opportunities over the years to help lead the young women (girls ages 12-18) in my ward. Currently, I have left my family, friends, work and school to go to a foreign country to serve a mission for 18 months...and it is the best decision that I have ever made!
