Hi I'm Yamile
I am a very happy mom. I like what i do for living, which is bookkeeper. I love spending time with my family doing fun activities even during school days!
Why I am a Mormon
I never knew what was a Mormon before until i met a friend that introduced me to the Book of Mormon. He told me of the Restore Gospel of Jesus Christ and that we had a living prophet. I couldn't understand much what he was talking about when he said a living prophet. The only prophets that i knew were from the bible and were from a long time ago. He share his testimony with me about the prophet Joseph Smith and how he actually saw God the Father and Jesus Christ and he was chosen to bring forth and translate an ancient record hidden underground about ancient people in America. He told me that was how the Book of Mormon came forth. He also told me that if i read the Book of Mormon and ask Heavenly Father in prayer if the book was true i would for sure without any doubt receive an answer to my prayer that the book was true. Of course i hesitate first, i was doubting about if this story was true or if it was just a fairytale story, but since the only way i could know if it was true or not would be actually doing what my friend told me to do i said to myseld ok, i have nothing to lose and if its not true i will know for myself. I read the Book of Mormon diligently and i pray about it and continue to read and praying to know if it was true and finally i received the confirmation that it was indee the word of God. Because i knew the Book of Mormon was true i also knew that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I decided to be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and since that day on my life changed in every possible way. Being member of the church has been one of the greatest blessing i have received in my life. I am a better mother, daughter, sister, friend, worker because of it. The Restore Gospel of Jesus Christ has opened my eyes and today i see life with an eternal perspective. Living the Gospel brings happiness, the happiness that can not be achived in this wordly world...It brings eternal happiness.
What is hope and what do you hope for?
Hope is like Faith, you know things are going to work out no matter what. I always hope that one day the rest of my family open their hearts to the Lord and be willing to learn the things that i have learned since i am a member of the church. I hope they see in me a truly disciple of Christ. I hope i can be an intrument in the hands of God to teach others the Restore Gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope i can make the difference in somebody else's life and help them somehow return to the presence of our Heavenly Father one day.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon has brought me closer to God because it contains the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everytime i read it i find wisdom and knowlege and treasures, even hiden treasures pertaining the kindom of God. I love this book and i try to read it at least 5 minutes everyday. Everytime i have a question of whatever matter i turn to the book and i always find answers that help me go on.
How has the Holy Ghost helped you?
The Holy Ghost is the greatest gift Heavenly Father gives to his faithful children here on earth, is a constant companion that will guide us and direct us in whatsoever the Lord wants us to do. It is also a witnesses of the truth. It will always testify to you with impressions, feelings and even as a still small voice the truth of all things that you ask to God. It has been a blessing in my life having the companioship of the Holy Ghost, it has helped me in times of needs by comforting me, it has protected me from bad influences of the world, it has given me impressions of things i should do to help others and bless others. I hold sacred this gift from God and i try day by day to live worthy to have it with me always.
How I live my faith
The most important thing to me is to center my life and the life of my family around the teachings of our savior Jesus Christ. To make sure i find ways during each day to serve others in any possible way. I love teaching children the Gospel. Every sunday, in church, we get together with the children in Primary meetings and there we sing songs to the Lord and learn about the plan that Heavenly Father has for us.
