Hi I'm Angie

Born and raised in Philippines. We moved to Canada when I was 26. I'm mother of 2. I'm a registered nurse. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Angie, I was born in the Philippines. My husband Manuel and two wonderful children migrated to Canada with me. I am presently working as a registered nurse in Nephrology/Urology in-patient unit. On my spare time, I love to read books and write on my journal, clean my house, gardening, catch up with my friends and families, find an opportunity to serve, I love dancing, and lastly, listening to good music. I also love cooking and trying new recipes and baking. I consistently involving myself to various workshops and programs to be a competent nurse. I love educating patient and mentoring nursing students. I love biking, and travelling with my family and friends. I keep close communication with my family back home. Just like Nephi, I have a goodly parents and I love all my siblings.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I got curious how to talk to God. I've asked my mother how to pray and she taught me the way she knows how. I also love going to church every Sunday. My father noticed that I have a strong motivation about attending church at a young age and I cannot forget when he said to me one evening; "since you love going to church, that will be your assignment from now on to take your siblings to church with you". During my high school year I met someone in campus who is a member of LDS church and I was finally introduced to the missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They started teaching me about Jesus Christ, the proper way of prayer, the plan of salvation, the restoration and repentance. They taught me the importance of family and how it is possible to be eternal. My parents had shown me the importance of family values similar to the teaching in the Mormon church. The missionaries introduced " The Book of Mormon" another testament of Jesus Christ. I read it and I knew in my heart that it is true. I never felt so much peace. They taught me, that one must be baptised to be able to enter the Kingdom of God. In 1988 of February I decided to get baptised. It was the best decision I've ever made in my life. After my baptism, I have witnessed so many blessings in my life in different forms, gained good friends, witnessed baptisms of my siblings and parents. The gospel in my life, acted as my anchor in staying strong and enduring all life trials.

How I live my faith

Teaching is one of the thing I love to do and develop. I love working with children, teaching them to sing, to help them prepare to give a talk, to learn how to pray, to love, to be kind with others and most of all to love Jesus Christ. I also enjoyed my years with young women developing their talents, their testimonies, and helping them to have a stronger commitment to choose the right when faced with difficult choices. I have learned a lot of things with the group of mothers and leaders at church, being away from my family; the church has been my guide, my coach in many aspect of my life, in rearing children with love, in handling marriage challenges, dealing with finances and many other things that are vital to have a peaceful life.
