Hi I'm Paula

I was a lost sheep and the young women rescued me :) I'm a Filipino.

About Me

I have been busy preparing for my mission. I love working with the missionaries and visiting teaching. I am a Stake Young Women leader and I love organizing fun and meaningful activities for the young women. I have been called to serve on April 26, 2013 in the Phililippines Cagayan de Oro Mission. Oh, and I love reading books written by John Green, JK Rowling, Paulo Coelho, Suzanne Collins, Lois Lowry and Stephen Chbosky. I draw, I play the piano and the guitar, I like dancing and I'm a professional daydreamer :3

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. As a kid, it was easy for me to believe in whatever my mom believed. Time came when I started doubting the church. I left and searched for the truth for 3 years. Those years were the darkest times of my life. It's funny searching for something for such a long time only to find it back where I started. I went back to church and gained my own testimony. I am now preparing to go on my mission to serve the Lord and my fellow men. I want others to feel the happiness and peace that the gospel brings. I know that true happiness can only be found in the true teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Everyday I seek for opportunities to serve others and to learn new things. Serving others makes me feel closer to our Heavenly Father. My calling as a Ward Missionary gives me a lot of opportunity to share the gospel to less active and non-member friends. It is one great way of serving others and the Lord. Teaching the youth and organizing activities for them strengthens my personal testimony. It's really a edifying to see their eyes light up when I become an instrument in "bringing things to their remembrance."

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

“We do not worship [Joseph Smith] the Prophet. We worship God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ. But we acknowledge the Prophet; we proclaim him; we respect him; we reverence him as an instrument in the hands of the Almighty in restoring to the earth the ancient truths of the divine gospel, together with the priesthood through which the authority of God is exercised in the affairs of His Church and for the blessing of His people” (Gordon B. Hinckley, “Joseph Smith Jr.—Prophet of God, Mighty Servant,” Ensign, Dec 2005, 2–6). Show more Show less
