Hi I'm Vanesa

I was born and raise in the small island of Tonga. I was born and raise in the church. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 14 years. We have two boys, 11 yrs old and 5 yrs old. We love each other. My husband and I managed apartments and we love people! I love working out in the gym, so I go there at 4a.m. and start working at 8:30a.m. I have a good life. I love life, love the outdoors and especially nature. We're in Oregon and this is a beautiful place to enjoy different seasons. :-)

Why I am a Mormon

This gospel has changed my life. I went thru a divorce a couple of years ago, after two kids. I knew in my heart that I wasn't doing the right thing and that's why everything falls apart. I decided to turn to the Lord and dig deeper into what he has in store for me. I started from basic, daily scripture study, even though I didn't understand most of it, but I read with a desire to feel the spirit, I also prayed all the time and would fast at least twice a week. After doing this for a good month, my view of the world changed. I see people with a heart longing for them to know what I knew. It was a very humbling experience and it's very hard to explain. I felt the pure love of Christ. Now I reunited again with my husband and my two boys. Our life has been so much better then ever before. I'm so grateful for the knowledge of the Plan of Salvation, the Atonement. This is the only true church.

How I live my faith

Saturday is when I do all my cleanings and prepare my spirit for Sunday. I used to always feel lazy to go church but the knowledge I have now. I can't afford to miss church. I like to be there on time. I feel that the church is the Lords church. Not the people. Everything I do for the church is for my Heavenly Father. I love visiting the sisters and be active in my calling in creating activities for our sisters.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Mormon came from the title of the Book of Mormon which is another testimony of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
