Chat With a Mormon Online
I'm a BYU graduate in Public Relations. I work full time in marketing and PR. I'm married to the love of my life. I love snowboarding, playing basketball, hiking, biking, long boarding, camping, swimming, baking and challenging myself in all aspects of my life.
I grew up in an LDS home and left the church for a few years. Those were some of the worst years of my life. I remember thinking everyday that something was missing, and I knew exactly what it was. It was the gospel and the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I returned to the church, served a mission and am about to marry the most amazing I've ever met. There is nothing out there in the world that is better than the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Heavenly Father has answered my prayers in various ways. Recently I've been praying everyday and night to get a good internship. I started praying for this in May, just last week (August) I received two internship offers and a new career level job. At times it was hard to keep praying when I felt like nothing was happening. But Heavenly Father knew better and gave me these opportunities at the right time for me. He has also answered my prayers by not giving me what I wanted at the time to give me an even greater blessing in the future. A great example of this is when I returned home from my mission in May 2011. I had a goal to be engaged by December 2011 and married by April 2012. I dated lots of guys that summer and kept praying that something would work out. Nothing did. I started school thinking, "Ugh I'll never get married!" A few weeks later I met my fiancé, a few months later he asked me out on our first date. We got engaged in June and were married September 2012. My plan was a few months off, but I couldn't be any happier that the Lord let me wait a while. Because now I've found the man of my dreams and all those other guys just don't compare.
I served a mission in Londrina, Brazil. I try to live my faith by being an example to others. I generally won't come out and say, "hey I'm LDS!" I want others to ask me about my faith by the way that I live.
