I believe in God. I believe He is our loving Heavenly Father and that He truly cares about what happens to us. He sent Jesus Christ to be our Savior. I choose to worship God as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Most everything else I believe is rooted in this.
I believe in love, all kinds of love: for family, friends, and our fellow humans in general. If we love one another, we should act accordingly. I believe in treating others with kindness, dignity, compassion, and respect. I believe in building loving relationships with those around us.
I believe in equality, regardless of gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability, race, ethnicity, nationality, marital status, income, height, weight, eye color, hairstyle, favorite food or anything else. People are people and should be treated with love and dignity.
I believe in happiness. Everyone has a right to search for happiness. I believe in finding happiness through my life choices and allowing others to do the same. I believe in finding joy in the small moments: fuzzy kittens, cute puppies, beautiful mountains, energetic children, sunsets, rivers, good books, fun movies, kind letters, sweet smiles, bubbling fountains, warm sunshine, cool breezes, delicious food, delighted laughter, deep friendships and happy memories.
I believe in learning: reading, writing, communicating, sharing ideas, listening with an open mind, and traveling to new places.
