I love to draw and paint. I try to add meaning to my artwork. I really like to use oil pastels and draw landscapes. My technique is more of painting with oil pastels, kind of like with watercolors. I will be getting ready to go off to college here soon. I'm excited for a new adventure. Where ever I go, I know that the Lord is watching out for me.
My Dad is a lifelong member of the church and introduced my mom to the gospel. As a result, I was born under the covenant. I love the gospel. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and answers my prayers. I also know that if we are doing what is right, the Spirit will always be there to help us out, even with the simplest of things. I love to listen to General Conference every 6 months. I know that the teachings we are taught are true and for our benefit. Thomas S. Monson is the prophet on the earth today here to guide us. Joseph Smith did restore the gospel. I'm so thankful for it. I'm a Latter Day Saint because I know it is the truth.
The Holy Ghost can help you to know all things, if you are in tune to the Spirit. We have the ability to receive revelation about whatever we want to know. If we are sincere and faithful, we will receive our answers. My first experience that I remember was when I was young and my siblings and I were looking for my Mom's lost slipper. Well, I had the thought to look behind this crate. I didn't think it would be back there and kept looking elsewhere. Later, my Mom found her slipper behind the crate. I learned that I need to always be listening to the Spirit and act on the promptings that I receive. This is a wonderful blessing our Heavenly Father has given us. I know that we can receive many blessings through the Holy Ghost (the Spirit). He can bring us comfort, knowledge, warnings, and so much more, if we are listening and willing and ready to act upon those promptings.
I have been on my Stake Youth Committee for almost 2 years. I have enjoyed serving the other youth in the stake and my stake leaders. I do the best that I can do. Our most recent activity was planning our 10 stake youth conference. I loved being able to help, and even come early to get a little more tasks accomplished. My biggest assignment was to say the opening prayer in front of 1500+ people! I was nervous, but with faith and a priesthood blessing, I was able to give a nice prayer to start off our youth conference. I have also served in my Young Women class presidencies, and was able to receive my Young Women medallion as a Beehive. It has been great to share with others my talents. I know that they are gifts from God, and as I try to be like Him, he will bless me.
