Hi I'm Ariela Cottrell

I grew up in Argentina until the age of 8, then moved to the US. I'm a Mormon. Mother of six and married.

About Me

I am originally from Argentina and have been in the US since I was 9 yrs.old. Ive been a member of the church of jesus christ all my life. I am a wife to a wonderful husband and have six kids, 4 boys and 2 girls. I love life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of two wonderful missionaries that taught my parents in Argentina. I love being a Mormon! I would be completely lost without the teachings of the gospel. I Know that this church is true and that we have a living prophet on this earth to guide us and lead us on the right path.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. I am not perfect but try hard to live the standards of the gospel and it blesses me daily. I love reading the scriputers on my own and with my family. It blesses our family to do what is right. Doing what would please god is what brings happiness into my life.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Ariela Cottrell
We believe that families can be together forever, not just for time but for eternity. Death does not separate us, we will see them again. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Ariela Cottrell
Our life style is just as normal as yours. I choose to not drink alcohol, smoke, use bad language, drink coffee, do drugs, etc. We have a choice to not do those things and since I was young I have chosen to not do those things. I'm a mormom and I live my life through Jesus Christ. I try to be Christ like. I'm not perfect, I make mistakes, but I do try daily to make good choices so I can receive the blessing that our heavenly father has for me. I'm human, just like everyone else, I eat sleep and a busy mom of six that tries to do the best that I know for my family. Show more Show less
