Hi I'm Sonia

Born in Peru, raised in Utah. I love to watch the World Cup and run through sprinklers. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a college student studying Elementary Education. Music is everything to me! I sing and play the trumpet. I love reading and hiking. I can't imagine living without mountains, I'd rather sleep in a tent, wrapped inside a sleeping bag than a regular bed any day. I enjoy being involved, I have joined countless of clubs from preparing high school students to take the ACT to tie dye tuesdays. Simply put, I love the gospel, my family, my friends and life!

Why I am a Mormon

"Because it's true and I can't deny it". When I was nine years old my family stopped going to church. I remember feeling like something was missing, especially when we began to go to different congregations. All of my friends were active Mormons and I began to question what it was that I once had. At the age of twelve, I slowly started going back to church on my own. One Sunday after church I remember going to my bedroom, opening the Book of Mormon and getting on my knees to pray. I specifically asked Heavenly Father if the book was true, the overwhelming peace that I felt is one I can't deny. That simple but powerful testimony has been the driving force behind every decision I've ever made. The gospel means everything to me. I know God lives, I know He answered my prayer that day. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. Joseph Smith truly did see God and Jesus Christ, I know he was a prophet. Our purpose here is to be happy and the gospel of Jesus Christ is what brings me the most happiness.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in the Best Mission in the World (Texas Fort Worth Mission)! Every day I have the opportunity to share with complete strangers the happiness that is in me. I can testify to them that God lives and loves THEM. That through Jesus Christ they have the potential to be an eternal family with those they love the most. A neat gift we share as missionaries is the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. This book contains the answers to any question they may have, how to find joy, peace, purpose, etc. I absolutely love what I do.
