Hi I'm Norberto

I love paddleball, the cold weather, and Wranglers...and I'm a mormon

About Me

Well, I am a SUPER shy kid, Even after you get to know me-Its just the way I am. I am honest, always, and trustworthy. I am hardworking, high-spirited, determined, and I NEVER GIVE UP ! ! I hardly become angry-I am not an angry person. I am stubborn and adventurous- but careful at the same time. I think clear and move forward regardless of what people think- Its whatever to me. I truly am a nice kid, and I'm not just saying that... I love to help others- and I do it in the most generous way..It helps me feel good inside. I AM NOT PERFECT ! ! ! but here I am trying to live a good, righteous life alongside the people I love the most...

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I've been blessed by just knowing that there is a prophet once again in the world. I've asked my father in heaven, through prayer, about the Book of Mormon and the message it contains. He has answered me time and time again. I know its true ! Joseph Smith was a prophet. years ago, church was not even in my mind. I was never taught to pray as a young boy. I never read the scriptures. Yet, I was taught to say that I believe in god. So I never had real faith in god. When I was asked to ask god about the church, I did it in the most sincere way and he answered. Having that answer from god I took the leap of faith and I joined His church. I've been a member for several years. While they havent been rainbows and unicorns, if you know what I mean, they have been the most happiest years of my life. I truly treasure the relationship I've been able to establish with my heavenly father through prayer. It is the most wonderful thing. The peace and joy that I have from living the gospel is immense. And trust me, I am not perfect at all. But yeah, I am mormon because I know that these things are true; with all my heart and soul I know that.

How I live my faith

Well, I really try my best to live what I know to be true and right. I like to be and example and let that light shine, if you know what I mean. I live everyday wanting to be better than the day before. One of my favorite things to do is service. I love to serve those in need. Wether it be fixing a garden or just helping an elderly person cross the street, its so rewarding. I mean, we all live on earth right? We are all here together. Why not help each other out? I truly believe that doing so helps me to remember who I follow: Jesus Christ...and not just that but it also helps me to be more and more like him everyday.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Norberto
I dont believe there is a prophet today...I KNOW we have a prophet today ! ! Everyone can find out for themselves, if you would just pray about it...I testify that we have a prophet...and while he doesnt wear a long robe...or carry a stick..or have a long beard, he has been called by god and has that authority given to him. I am grateful for the prophet because we arent in the dark...we know the will of the lord..and thanks to the prophet, we know our way back to heavenly father. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Norberto
Well, I honestly had to find out for myself if it was true. I was taught by some missionaries but I had to find out for myself. That really caught my attention because it gave me an opportunity to begin to establish and develop a relationship with my father in heaven. To make the story shorter, I prayed and I got my answer. I felt such peace and tranquility. I felt such love and I just knew that it was my answer from god. I continued to read my scriptures and to make changes in my life so that it would be more in harmony with the teachings of the savior. Doing all these things made me realize the peace that comes from so doing. I know the church is true. Thats why I am here and thats why I continue to make small changes each day to be more like christ. Show more Show less
