Hi I'm Denhi

I grew up inside the biggest cities in the world. Now I grow from doing therapy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy plenty of things but try to focus on some of them at a time. I absolutely love dancing, even though I haven't been able to do so in a while. I enjoy reading a lot! I find literature very inspiring and a perfect way to relate to people through words. I also enjoy watching movies, cross-stitching, and learning about different cultures, especially learning about languages - I'm originally from Mexico City:) I'm finishing up my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, so my dream is to have my personal private practice where I can help those who might be searching for an extra push. Needles to say I believe in people and their infinite potential, I believe in marriages, and families. I'm currently married, and have no kids as of yet. My husband and I enjoy Fridays, and a good dinner - we love food! A good laugh, good food, a warm hug, a good book, and the sunset are my favorite things in the world!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born inside the Church, going to Church was something that was never questioned in my family. When I started my teenage years I realized I had a choice. Growing up in big cities (Mexico City, Sao Paulo among others) was not easy and some of my values began to be questioned. I wanted to regain that affirmation I had as a child that I was doing the right thing. When I was a child I had never doubted, but now I needed more re-assurance in a world where doing what I had been taught was becoming increasingly hard. I made mistakes, and learned then how aware God was of me, and how kindly and softly He had been looking out for me. I met the right people within and outside of church that helped me gain the confidence I needed to continue in my work of not giving up and knowing for myself. The time came, slowly but surely, when the feeling I had each time I prayed, every time I read my scriptures, or listened to the Prophet when it was undeniable, like a fire inside my chest that could not be quenched. More importantly, through my hard times I came to know personally that Christ loved me, and even though I had gone for a time in choosing to not fully believe in Him, He had always believed in me. This Gospel has brought me infinite happiness, more strength than I ever thought I could have, hope for the world around me, and purpose for my life and everything I do. Like so many before me, I testify that this Gospel is true, I believe in Christ. I testify that he is my best friend, my Savior and my Redeemer. The fire still burns, and each day it is fed, it truly cannot be quenched.

How I live my faith

Being a mormon is more than just doing, is what you are and what you hope to fully become. A day doesn't go by without me doing something that involves the Gospel. Simple acts of services define who we are. I work especially with the youth. Girls between the ages of 14-15. This is a wonderful age to learn and serve! I teach them each Sunday about topics that will help them get to know God and Christ. Topics that will help them face challenges, and find happiness. We meet each Wednesday to carry out an activity that is usually focused around service. I also visit two fabulous women with another fellow member. We go each month and share a message. We try to bring treats, and get to know them personally. I try to give the message in a way that will be meaningful for them. More than anything I try to be a good example unto others. I try to show my own humanness in the way that I strive to do what I know to be right. Although I may not always succeed. I try to show love for the people I encounter, and let them know they are cared for.
