Hi I'm Holly Fritze

I grew up in Iowa, I'm a student, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a down home Iowa girl who loves family and spending time with my friends. I am going to nursing school and my free time is spent with my friends around a bonfire or horseback riding. I like tae kwon do and cooking and my favorite show is the big bang theory.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Lutheran Christian and went to a small porochial school from kindergarten to eigth grade. We recited bible verses every morning and had bible study three times a day with chapel on fridays and we all had to be in the church choir. I felt as though I were going through the motions because it was what was expected of me. I fell away from the church when I got into high school. Then I met a guy at work who introduced me to the Mormon church. I went to church for the first time and heard the heart felt testimonies of the members and my heart swelled. Their genuine love of Christ was what I had been missing in my life and I wanted to know the comfort and love that true faith provided. I went to classes with the missionaries and slowly began to open my heart to their words and I prayed every night to ask if what I was doing was what Christ wanted. I received my answer and was baptized and my life has a purpose again. I am no longer going through the motions, I am asking for guidance and fallowing my promptings. I am happy and my life is filled with as many trials as it was before but now I do not get discouraged because I know that Christs love will get me through.

How I live my faith

I go to church as much as work allows and read my scriptures daily. i love participating in church activities and volunteering in my community. I just received a new calling as a visit teaching coordinator and i am excited!
