Meet Cerissa Urry, a 22yr old ballerina from Layton, Utah. Cerissa now lives in Modesto where she dances for the Central West Ballet as a principal dancer. She also works at the camera center in town restoring old photos, scanning and printing enlargements, and producing slide shows.
Cerissa believes that the best time spent traveling is always in the company of her family. Her favorite vacations include many road trips to the west coast and on top of that, her dancing endeavors in New England gave her good excuses to also tour that part of the nation.
Along with the West Coast and New England ,Cerissa is really intrigued by the by culture, history and even politics of the Middle East. She has always wanted to see and experience the Egyptian ruins; however, in the last few years, she has also really wanted to visit Israel. She can’t really put her finger on it, but thinks it has something to do with walking the same plot of Earth as Moses and Jesus Christ that hits home. In Cerissa's own words about Kent: "I am having such a hard time putting it into words, but when I ponder this question about why Kent and I would be good together, the one thought remains: He is good and he is a Son of God - he gets it. And what I mean by “it”, is he’s looking for a companion with the right spirit and I feel he is really seeking qualities of eternal worth - as am I. He’s not perfect, I’m not perfect, but we’re both facing this opportunity prayerfully. This even puts me in a vulnerable position, but I’m doing it because I feel something good in my heart - more than just an agenda of things we have in common. So destined? Who knows, I’m not one to put the cart before the horse, but is he worth taking a risk? Yes."
