Hi I'm Aubrey

I'm an outdoor enthusiast, an artist, a lover of Motown, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Enjoying life is important to me. Play great music, laugh until you snort, and surround yourself in beautiful things and with beautiful souls. I studied Biology and Graphic Design in college. I play and write music, and have a song stuck in my head 90% of the time. I dabble in photography and love to read books- as long as they're well written. Finding unique, untouched, or overlooked things is one of my favorite things to do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the truest way to get close to God. There are too many facades in this world all promising to have answers, but Mormons have more than promises-- they have results. Through practicing the teachings of this faith, I have gained a relationship with my Father in Heaven, which I believe is essential to find joy and peace. I am a Mormon because I want to know my creator. I am a Mormon because I know this religion is true.

How I live my faith

Growing up, I was involved in youth leadership or "class presidencies" from the time I was 12. I helped, and continue to help plan activities and service projects. I recently co-founded a group called "Stitching Sisters" where local women in our church can gather together to crochet, visit, and learn from one another!

What is the priesthood?

The Priesthood is the Authority to act in God's Name. It is the same authority Jesus gave to His apostles-- that alone should tell you what a sacred responsibility we believe it is to hold it, and that not just anyone gets such a privilege. Those who hold the Priesthood are expected to use it to bless and serve God's children the same way Christ would if He were still on the Earth. As a woman, I do not hold the priesthood, but my life is blessed equally as much as any priesthood holder. In no way do I feel discriminated against or repressed because I cannot hold the priesthood. Instead, I am incredibly grateful for the access to God's ubiquitous power in any way. Show more Show less
