Hi I'm Monica

I'm a Bolivian living in TX. I'm wife to a grad student, happier than a bird with a french fry (most of the time) & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to an amazing man and I have a great family. I love art in all its forms and feel inspired by it. I work full-time in the field of international education. I dedicate the rest of my time to my family, good entertainment and good books.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was born my family was already part of the Church. I grew up in the Church and as the years passed by I found my life's purpose through the Gospel teachings. Through all of my experiences I've gained a testimony that this Church is true, and I know with all my heart that it is the only true Church on earth. I am a Mormon because this church gives direction to my life and because of it I have received the greatest blessings. I feel that having the Gospel in my life helps me stay focused on the important things and despite all of the terrible things that happen every day I can see the beautiful side of life and put this time into perspective.

How I live my faith

At our ward (congregation) I teach the youth ages 12-13--I plan lessons and I participate in weekly meetings during the week to do various activities with them. I'm also a Visiting Teacher and I have a companion. We go out every month to visit our assigned sisters and take them a message of love. I also live my faith at home with my husband as we strive to do things that bring Jesus Christ into the center of our home.

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

Yes, I do. The Church was Restored and it follows the same format of the Church back when Christ was on earth. I believe that our prophet was called of God and that he receives revelation for our Church. I know the Lord loves us and he has given us the blessing of a prophet to guide us in these latter days.   Show more Show less
