Hi I'm Whitney Smith

I am a Missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am serving in South Texas!

About Me

My name is Whitney, I was born & raised in Northern Utah. I am serving as a Missionary right now in Texas. Before my mission I was studying Nursing at a school in Utah. I have a love for nature and for fun adventures!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS, growing up my parents were faithful church goers and they would always bring me and my 3 sisters with them. At a young age we learned the importance of having faith and believing in God. As I was growing older and going to High School, there came a time when I had to find out for myself if this was the church I wanted to follow or not. I knew that to find answers we have to show our faith and use action. That is what I did, I prayed, studied the scriptures, attended church, fasted, prayed some more, studied some more. Slowly but surely God revealed to me that this was the true church. I am so happy I searched for that answer because I know that this church is the same church that Jesus Christ established while he was here on the earth, & that this is the only church with the FULL truth. I know that it is the only way that we can have pure joy in this life and in the life to come.

How I live my faith

As a Missionary we leave behind our families, friends, school, jobs, we leave behind everything for 18-24 months and we talk to people about God 24/7. We do this because we know that having faith in God brings people lasting joy & peace.
