Hi I'm Bethany

I'm from Brisbane, Australia. All my best friends are in my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a great love for music and played flute and oboe throughout high school in my school orchestras. I love spending time with my family members, especially talking with them and laughing until we cry! I am studying speech pathology and have a great love for language and the power that can come when we communicate with clarity and kindness. I don't own a phone and if it were possible to get through life without one I think I'd like that. I love to dance and in the worlds largest game of musical statues I came third...that was a great day.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of Jesus Christ's church because this is where you can find true peace! I have tried looking for answers outside of my faith. I have tried listening to the many, many opinions of the world and I always ended up so confused and often felt alone and lost. As I have prayed with a sincere desire to know if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church, that the Book of Mormon is true and if Christ lives and loves me, I have come to feel the Holy Ghost in my heart fill me with a sense of peace and happiness. I think that the best feeling in the world is peace. Happiness or joy comes close but true peace are those things mixed together with an added sense of contentment. You can find what you are looking for in this church. You can find love, joy, peace, faith, an eternal family, your life's purpose, strength beyond your own, forgiveness, and never ending happiness. I wouldn't give up what I have or what I know for the world. My life is better, in fact it's as good as it could ever be because I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I help out at church with the children (4-5 year olds) and lean heavily upon the knowledge and guidance of my mother and sister who both work with young children in their careers and are GREAT at it! I LOVE LOVE LOVE family history!!! I love finding out who my ancestors are and learning about the many traits they have that I identify with.
