Hi I'm Margaret

I grew up in the East Coast. I'm Hispanic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Im the oldest of 5. First generation to be born in the U.S.A. to immigrant latino parents. I am the first in my family to receive a college degree. I am married to a Brazilian. We have one daughter. In our home we speak, Spanish, English, and Portuguese. I love exercising, health and wellness. I enjoy sports, Zumba, dancing, hiking and the outdoors. I find my self always serving or volunteering to help other's or in organization's. I am always finding myself serving in many different ways almost daily. Whether it be at home or somewhere else. I just love helping others.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of the church. I was baptized at age 8 and I always felt in my heart the teachings and doctrines of the church are true. As I grew older I have noticed many wonderful changes in my life and in the life of others. I wouldn't be the person that I am today.

How I live my faith

I have served in many different ways in my ward (church). I have helped children, men and women as sunday school teachers. I served 18 months in Brazil as a missionary. It was a great and an incredible experience that I have ever had. Learned a new language, new culture and a new way of life. I was able to help and make a difference in people's lives. I continue to go to church with my family every sunday to worship and i like to help serve friends and volunteer to those that are in need.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

In this life time, we have lost many loved ones, such as family, friends that were once close to us. A lot of people think that is the end of it, but that is not true. We believe that we can live and see our loved ones in the next life. It all depends on us if we live the standards and commandments that we believe and live by so we can once again reunite with our families forever. Show more Show less
