Hi I'm Bonnie

I grew up in Boise, ID. I'm a CNA and a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a Utah based college student currently deciding between neuroscience and public health as majors. I hope to both study and bring awareness to fixable health problems so people can take their health into their own hands. I am currently a CNA working with stroke patients in home health. In the last few years I was a lifeguard and a piano teacher. My hobbies include dancing in my kitchen, playing the piano, taking naps, and going on runs and casual bike rides through neighborhoods and parks.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but I choose to continue in this faith because there is nowhere else to turn. Through my challenges and fears the only thing that has ever brought solace is my faith. I have the companionship of the Comforter, temples, priesthood blessings, the scriptures, and the knowledge that through Christ not only can my sins be forgiven, but I can be carried through challenges and burdens that seem too heavy to hold. Everything that is unjust in this world will be brought to balance. Through Christ I can do all things.

How I live my faith

I will be spending the next eighteen months on a mission in the Georgia Macon Mission. My desire to take this time away from my education, family, and friends stems from a knowledge of the beauty this gospel has brought to my life. I want others to have the peace and comfort that comes from a personal relationship with their Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ. While not on a mission I live my faith through my callings and my personal study. I serve in my ward as a family home evening mom. Because we are unmarried college students, we organize groups to stand in as families. We do weekly activities together and we are able to rely on each other for assistance in times of need. College can be isolating, and this helps to make sure everyone feels they have a group in which they feel welcome. My personal study is the time that I feel most connection with my Heavenly Parents. This is not only the reading of scripture, but in quiet times that I'm able to reflect on questions I have.
