AlexAlex

Profile:  I was raised in the church and I am senior and SBO at my high school. My mom is from Bolivia and my dad is from Idaho. I have 3 older sisters and I love my family more than anything. I also love sports, school, music, food, adventures and much more. You can usually find me in the SBO room, the choir room, at church, with friends, or home doing homework. I have seen God answer my prayers and I know he loves me. I know that my life is blessed beyond measure because of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which is God’s restored church on the earth. I am a Mormon because I know that I can return to my Heavenly Father some day and be sealed to family for all time and eternity.

AmbreeAmbree

Profile:  I’m Ambree and I am one of those High School students who wants everyone to be accepted and loved. I enjoy being outdoors. I especially love horseback riding, playing tennis, badminton, jogging, swimming, etc. I have a special place in my heart for music. I play the ukulele and the flute. I also enjoy singing in one of my High School choir’s. I have an incredibly talented choir teacher who strives to help us become not just better performers, but our best self every day. This year I decided to take ASL (American Sign Language) as my second language, and I’m really enjoying it! My Dad is my HERO, because he’s the most honest person I know, he’s always been there for me and that’s why I look up to him. I think people who go through life with a positive attitude are the best people to be around – it’s the happier way to get through life. I have an unbreakable love for my Savior. He is my example and I want to be more like Him.

KaitlynKaity

Profile:  My name is Kaitlyn, my friends call me Kaity. I am currently in high school. I belong to a family of four. I have one sister that looks just like me. We are identical twins. My family and I own four dogs. My family and I have moved around a lot because of my father’s job. I miss Texas all the time but I also love all the beautiful aspects of moving to a new place. My hobby is gymnastics. My gymnastics carrer lasted about ten years. During this time, I qualified for five Junior Olympics and attended four of them. My sister and I were very accomplished gymnasts but we eventually got burned out. The sport takes a lot of dedication, time, and hard work. Eventually we began dance instead. I am currently on my high school’s Dance Company and I am loving every minute of it.

KarliKarli

 Profile: My name is Karli and I am 18 years old. I have an absolute passion for soccer, I have played for almost 12 years and I still absolutely love it. I have three little brothers that I love to boss around and show them who is the older sibling around here although I know that won’t be how it is in a couple of years when they are twice as big as me. If you were to ask my friends they would say that I am un-American because I don’t enjoy the taste of pizza and chocolate is not my favorite thing. I know what you’re thinking: I’m a girl who doesn’t like chocolate… How does that happen? I don’t really know. The most important thing about me is that I am LDS and I know that this is the true church. I am preparing to go on a mission when I turn 19 and I cannot wait until I get to go and spread the gospel with people in the world, so I thought I would get a head start by writing this blog. 🙂

LincolnLincoln

Profile: I’m Lincoln, and I am a senior in high school. Basically, sports are my life. I’m a diehard Red Sox fan, and a sad-to-admit-it Jazz fan. I would love to travel to South America and Africa. I hope to graduate high school, and go onto college after my mission. You could often find me spending time cleaning my room or hanging out with my friends, depending on my mom’s mood. Music is a huge part of my life, and I don’t think I could go a day without it. I’m also convinced that the world would be free from war if everyone played the ukulele. I’m especially grateful for my physical abilities, my little Honda Civic, the summertime, buffets, and most of all, my Savior, Jesus Christ.

LizLiz

Profile: My name is Rylee Elizabeth but the people who love me call me Liz. I’m a high school senior and couldn’t be happier. I come from a family of nine, so I’m used to loud noises. Sports are my life. I’m on my high schools Soccer team and Track team. If I’m not wearing flip flops, I’m in my Nikes or my cleats. I like watching football and baseball with my daddy and I love the outdoors. You can find me hiking, camping, running, taking pictures in the mountains, dancing in the rain, or just chillin’ with my friends. Unless I have homework. Music is also a very big part of my life. My car radio is very impressed with my beautiful voice. I’m the awkward girl stopped at a red light with windows down and music too loud. I hope to be a mom when I grow up and can’t imagine being anything else. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and have been for as long as I can remember. I love to laugh and you rarely see me without a smile on my face. If there is a problem, fix it. Life is too short to be anything but happy.

TommyTommy

Profile:  I was raised in the LDS church, but until about a year ago, church was a place I just went on Sundays. But over the last couple of months, I have felt a conversion towards Christ. My dad reads to me and my brothers about Christ a lot and bears his testimony most nights. I decided to read the scriptures, and I prayed about it often. I have started to pray for lots of things, and God has really helped me to believe in him a lot because of my choices. I loving coding, and animation. Art is great. Psych is amazing. Nuff Said.

WhitneyWhitney

Profile:  I love to laugh! And I truly believe that a day without laughter is a day wasted. Some people may say I spend a little too much time at the pool, but that’s okay. I have a big, crazy family, that I love. I love driving with my windows down and my music playing. I believe you’re never too old for Disney music. I want to travel the world. You can never go wrong with a cup of frozen yogurt. I know that a simple smile can brighten anyone’s day. I love spending time in the temple. I have a personal relationship with my Father in Heaven and I know I can do all things through Christ. This Gospel brings me so much happiness. My goal is to share this happiness with the world.
