Hi I'm Rosa

I'm a wife, a mom, and work at a local gym. I love to work out, golf and kayak. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I would describe muself as perfectly average. I have many LDS and non-LDS friends and love to socialize. I also enjoy working out, golfing, kayaking, sun-bathing, refurbishing furniture, couponing, shopping, etc.... I'd say normal things for a gal my age. I suppose one difference is that I married young and have three amazing kids. I feel lucky to have found my eternal companion early and now have a partner in crime forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I was Raised LDS and baptized at age 8. I continued to progress in the church and made my way through the classes the church offers at each age. Yes, you could say I was born this way but make no mistake, this is NOT why I am Mormon. During High School, I went through what the church would describe as an inactive phase. I rebelled in my own way against the teachings of my parents and the church. Somehow I felt there were too many restrictions. After I graduated highschool and moved away from home, I continued to explore different things the world had to offer. I soon found myself acting in ways I knew to be wrong and hurting people in my life. It seemed the more "freedom" I had, the more damage I could do. I started making personal goals and cut many harmful things out of my life. After a short while my life was improving and I felt good about who I was and were I was heading. I started to feel like my old self. Although I was improving mentally, something was still missing. There wasn't the peace I had felt as a child and young adult. A peace I knew I was lucky to have experienced before and I wanted it again. I was reintroduced to the church by a friend and began a spiritual rebirth of sorts. I continue to grow closer to God every day. I am a Mormon because I like who I am and what I stand for.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the best I can but always strive to be better. No one in our faith lives it perfectly and we know that. We must lean on the mercies of our Father in Heaven to help us contunually better our lives. I love to attend our sunday meetings and go to the LDS Temple. I feel a joy and warmth there that cannot be found any other place I have been to. Christ promotes service to one another and to our community. Participating in service projects as a youth has taught me valuable lessons in humanity and charity that have spilled over into my adulthood. I strongly advocate service and love to help those in need.
