Hi I'm Ariane

I'm a "Mormon" and this has brought me so much happiness!

About Me

Hi, I am 23, Brazilian and I am living in England. I served as a missionary in England and those where the best years I lived. I study linguistics at University and I love meeting new people and learning their cultures. I enjoy playing sports especially basketball. Also I love dancing Latin American dances.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother was searching for a religion to raise her three daughters into when she met the missionaries. I was five years old when my parents joined the Church. My conversion took place through the years. While growing up I was blessed with small personal witness from God of the truthfulness of this Church. I know it is the true and pure gospel of Jesus Christ restored in these last days. It was restored through the prophet Joseph Smith, and we have a living prophet on the earth today. I know it because I have asked God and I testify that through His Spirit we can know the truth of all things. Been a mormon has brought me so much happiness, strength and peace into my life. Even when trials come I know where to turn to. I am grateful for the choice of my parents. This choice has blessed my life and it will bless generations to come.

How I live my faith

The gospel of Jesus Christ is about serving others. I study the scriptures and pray regularly to learn my Heavenly Father 's will. However, it is when serving that I feel mostly the Saviour's love. At church we have opportunities to visit and teach others and help them to strengthen their faith. By doing this my faith is also strengthened. I teach the youth on Sundays about the scriptures. Each week I prepare a lesson and it has helped me to develop a great love for them.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

There are many things that tell me there is a God, If I just look around nature, intelligence, family relationships, they all testify to me that there is a Supreme Being who look over us. The feelings I have concerning those things couldn't come from somewhere else but from God Himself. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Like the prophets and apostles of the time of Christ they will invite you to come unto Christ. They will share with you about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through a prophet on these modern days. They will invite you to have faith in Jesus Christ, repent and be baptised and continue to live a righteous life. They will also share with you where we came from before this life, that we are children of a Heavenly Father. Also what our purpose is on earth and how to live with God and our families again.

What is being a Mormon like?

It is the best lifestyle ever! I have the peace and strength I need to live life, which come from Jesus Christ. We try our best to live healthy lives, physically, mentally and spiritually. There are always opportunities to learn and grow. I live a busy student life and do many of the things most students do. I can always enjoy myself with good friends and companies living my standards. There are also many activities for the "young" people such as dances, camping, playing games. There is always something to do. Show more Show less
