Hi I'm Lettie

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. I love to draw, paint, and craft. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I have always loved learning. I had the opportunity to participate in a program called Running Start. Through this program, I was able to graduate high school with an Associates Degree from my local community college. I also love to draw and paint. I have won various art awards and contests throughout my school career. I have a deep love for anything creative, but my favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I love playing games with them, watching movies, riding bikes, and going on adventures with them. Even though I am 19 years old, I am like a kid that never grew up. I love having fun and being silly. Nothing could ever change that about me!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have come to know for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ if Latter-Day Saints is the true gospel. I have prayed and felt the confirmation of the Spirit in my heart. This gospel has provided with with more peace and comfort than I can imagine. I have often wondered what kind of person I would be without the gospel in my life. I don't know what I would do without it. This church is so family centered. I love how important families are to our Heavenly Father. Throughout my life, this gospel has filled my soul with peace. When I am scared, I find comfort in the fact that Heavenly Father has a plan for me. He will never abandon me. The scriptures are full of peace, comfort, and hope. They teach about our Savior Jesus Christ. He is truly the center on this gospel. This is his church.

How I live my faith

I was recently called to serve an 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Korea. I have wanted to serve a mission my whole life! I am so excited to serve others. Service is very important to me. Being a Mormon has influenced my love for serving others in many ways. I was taught from a very young age to always be kind and loving. Jesus is who I strive to be like. I know I fall very short from the perfection of our Savior, but that is how I live my faith. I try my best everyday to be like Christ. I know I am not perfect and that I mess up, but that is how I learn and grow. We were put on this Earth to try our best. Our Heavenly Father knows we make mistakes and that is why he has put a plan in place to enable us to repent and return to live with him.
