Hi I'm Patricia

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Brazil and I have been living in USA for about a year. I love people...I think that everyone has different experiences in life and we can all learn from each other. I think that life is a gift and I love it so I try to live it the best I can every day. I definitely believe that a smile and a good attitude make the difference! The more I focus my actions in Christ, the more purpose and joy I find!  

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a mormon but as time passed I realized that I would have to obtain my own light and not just follow my parents. So I studied and prayed and applied the teachings and I saw the fruits and I received my answers! But growing up I was able to see that the teachings of Christ and the church helped my family a lot to be united, loving and to overcome trials. Having the knowledge that we are united for eternity helps us to improve our relationships and learn and grow together. Having a prophet today is something that I love as well. God is always the same and He loves us the same so He still call prophets to guide us! My faith grows more and more every day as I strengthen my ralationship with my Heavenly Father through prayer and scriptures study, specially The Book of Mormon. No matter how many times you read it, you can always learn new things. It makes me want to be better and better and become more Christlike. 

How I live my faith

I make it part of my daily life...I apply the things that I learn and that brings me a lot of joy no matter what happens in my day. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me who I am...

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Patricia
It's not required to serve a mission but I decided to do it.When people would ask me why I decided to go on a mission I would just give an example...It's like when you go to a new restaurant or a new place that you visit and you just have such a great experience...Once you come back, you call your family and friends and tell them that they have yo check it out because it's great... That's how I feel...The teachings of Christ and His church has brought me and my family so much joy and peace that I just wanted to share it with everyone that I could!  Show more Show less
