Hi I'm Margarida

I'm a Brazilian-Canadian Mormon. Despite of rain, snow, or hail, the sun is above. Life is great! Love it all!

About Me

I like learning new things and meeting new people. Because of the kind of work that I do, I meet with lots of people from different countries and culture. I like sharing about my way of living and hope to influence people to seek for understanding and sustainability in their lives. I am a Home Economist and Educator. My field is the family and the management of family resources.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14 years old, I felt like Joseph Smith did. I lived among many religions and they all had a slight different way to interpret God's words. I was practicing catholic and that time, and I searched the scriptures to learn from God. As I grew in appreciation for the scriptures I realized the priests message was "do what I say, not what I do," and I did not agree with that. I was catholic because I could not find something more accurate. All the other religions seemed to be good, but yet missing something. I just did not know what that "something" was. When I met the missionaries, I felt that God's connection with earth again, through a prophet, just made sense. The revelation, the prophet, was the connection that was missing everywhere else. I am so grateful that the Lord blessed me to know His church; To know that he re-established his church on earth again. This knowledge brought a whole new meaning to my life. I got to know and understand so much more about myself and the purpose of my life. I know who I am! I know why I am here on earth. Because of what I know, everything is possible, is enjoyable, is beautiful for me now. All the trials have a purpose, and a lesson to be learned. I love my life, and I love my Saviour, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I teach the scriptures and look for opportunities to share the gospel and to serve others. I seek for patterns in the scriptures and for application of the teachings in my own life. I work with the adult women in the church. Together we seek for ways to get closer to Christ, especially by serving others.

In whom should we have faith?

We have faith in Jesus Christ! He is the Son of God. He is our Saviour. He offered His life as a sacrifice for our sins. He is the only way for our salvation from death and from being apart from God. He is The Only One who can guide us back to home with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
