Hi I'm Luci

I'm a daughter. I'm a sister. I'm an aunt. I'm a friend. I'm a student. I'm a baker. I'm a reader. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born in Guatemala. Raised in Arizona. Living in Utah. I grew up in a Latin-American home. Although both of my parents are from Guatemala they raised us kids to believe in the American Dream. We were told we could accomplish anything, regardless of where we were from. Growing up, I never gave a second thought about being from another country. Life was normal. It wasn't until the age of 21, while I was on a mission for the LDS church that I realized how the outside world places such a huge difference on you when you're born in a different country. In reality, I'm just like you. I'm a nerd. I love learning. I love math, English, history and reading. I like to salsa and country dance! I love baking. I love heels and bright colors. I'm a college student figuring out what to major in. History, Psychology, Accounting, Political Science--all things that fascinate me. I work full time. I play tennis and card games and sometimes laugh uncontrollably. I'm a young, single adult enjoying life to the fullest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon simply because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's true church on the earth. I am a part of building God's kingdom. How marvelous to know that God trusts me enough to allow me to participate in His work. I'm Mormon because my prayers have been heard answered by a kind and loving Father in Heaven. He knows me personally. I know it. I am Mormon because knowing where I came from, why I'm here, and where I have the potential of going gives me the courage and hope to move forward despite hard times. I am Mormon not because of convenience or because everyone else in my family is. I am Mormon because the Spirit of God has testified to me that this is where I need to be. This is God's true church led by a Prophet, just like in times of old. I know it with every fiber of my being and I cannot deny it. This, this is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

"Faith without works is dead." This is what I have learned since I was young. I believe and have faith in Jesus Christ. In who he is and was as a person. He lived a life of charity, blessing everyone he came in contact with. That is the example I try to follow. Every day I have the opportunity to speak with many people. Although our conversations don't always turn to my beliefs I attempt to help them feel like they matter and are important. People want to feel validated and loved. Often times, a simple smile or a warm hello makes someones day. In elementary school I remember organizing service projects with girls my age. I ran for student government because I was taught that I needed to be an example. In my childlike mind, I thought of no better way to be an example than to be involved with my peers. In junior high and high school I joined many services clubs. I volunteered my time, talents, and efforts. I would never trade those moments. In my life today, I look for those opportunities. I pray that I can be an influence for good and an answer to someone's prayer for help. It's amazing what we can accomplish when we take a minute to look around and notice the many things we can be a part of. I am by no means perfect. But acknowledging my weaknesses and focusing on the needs of others, I have learned that truly our actions of faith bring miracles not only to us but to those around us.
