A lot has happened in my life that I never thought I would experience. But, even so, these periods and changes have made me who I am today. And despite the fact that life is constantly changing, and as a result changing me, there are a few things that I want to be known as constants in my life:
1. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's true and restored church upon the earth.
2. I am proud to be an American and to exercise my freedom.
3. I know that the Savior died for me and I am thankful that I can repent every day.
4. I know that I am part of a family. They love me and I love them. And even if I don't have a family in this life, one day I will. I believe in families.
5. I am thankful that I have the capacity to learn. I know that it is important to do this daily.
6. I want to be known as someone who constantly tries to live the gospel of Jesus Christ and will never change who she is to fit in with the world's standards of acceptability.
