Hi I'm Juliana

I live in Coimbra, Portugal but I was born in Brazil. I love voluntary work, music and animals. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Portugal since 1991. I came with my mom,dad and brother to start a new life in Portugal. Things weren't easy, but 20 years late I now recognize that we trully had the Hand of God helping us. My major in college is in Artistic Studies and I'm taking a masters degree in music. I work in a Hotel in Coimbra and that's one of the things I love to do most. I'm so grateful I am able to work and to know other people. In church, I work with the Young Single Adult and I really love them very much. As I told, I came from Brazil 20 years ago. I love Brazil and all the culture, people, weather and all that joy they have.

Why I am a Mormon

I met the church I was a little girl. My mother and my father thaught me about the Gospel. They were trully messengers of the Lord Jesus Christ. They brought me to the most beautiful plan, the plan of happiness. I grew up with all the knowledge that the gospel has to offer and even if I was 8 when I was baptized, I now know it was the best thing I could do for my salvation. I learned to pray and to ask God about things that would come to my mind, and with years passing by I felt the miracle It was to know that this is the real Gospel. The same gospel that was in earth when Jesus lived. I am a Mormon not because i grew in church, but because i was able to see how Jesus Christ changes our life. I am a Mormon because I know Heavenly Father hear us always and answer us. I'm a Mormon because I know it's true.

How I live my faith

One of the things that help me most to live my faith is to pray everyday. I pray, I talk to God as I would talk to my best friend (and He is our best friend) and I work. The Lord always blesses us when we work. Other thing is to find peace, answer in the scriptures. If you read even for 10 minutes you will feel so peaceful, so calm and with such a sweet feeling that you will be able to do all the good want to do. And doing good you will be close to God and Jesus. Another great thing that helps me to live my faith is to make goals. Small goals every week. Things I want to change, stop doing, or do often. When we focus in the things we need stop doing,change or do often and pray, It will be so easy to live our life with happiness. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a simple plan actually. You get closer to God, you work and the Lord will give you such amazing blessings. That's how I try to live my faith everyday. And we can't forget that Heavenly Father would never leave us alone. So it is possible to be blessed after all we can do.
