Hi I'm GRACE

A simple woman with great heart to everyone. I live a life being a disciple of Christ in ways I know. I'm proud I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was taught to be a good example to others and be a friend to everyone. I always remember Jesus examples' so I can emulate His good heart for everyone and with that in mind, I am getting good results. Really, there is no better way than to be good! Listening is one of the gifts I have that I love. I am a people-person who loves to listen to my friends and everyone, and talk about their interests or goals in life. I have served a sacred full-time mission in the Philippines Iloilo Mission which I enjoyed rendering selfless service and radiating the light and love of Christ to others. Therefore, I am half Iloco and half Ilongga (Ilongga by heart). I enjoy studying different languages. I live a life full of principles. I was taught to be strong and to stand on my own. I am a competitive and optimist person. If I think I can, I can. I want to exceed my limitations and the principle of Humility that our Savior taught me helps me to stay on the ground. I am a Disc Jockey and I love music very much! I am also a Linguist. Also, dancing is where I'm also good at. I was a performing artist in Sang Daang Pulo Theater Group and I enjoyed competing in so many different places. My hobbies include cooking, singing, and of course reading books. I love fiction! And that includes fiction movies. I love puzzles and anything about mind games. I am an out-going person so I am a "go go" that loves challenges.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was 8. I wasn't that aware of what is happening. All I know is that I'm getting baptized. I was a shy-type young girl before but the church helped me so much to be engaged to maturity. I am grateful for the guidance of my parents. They took part in the development of my faith. I am grateful for the missionaries who taught and baptized my parents for it opens the door towards our Heavenly Father. Being a Mormon is a great privilege and opportunity and a blessing. And I also had the privilege to go on a mission to proclaim the gospel - just like the missionaries who first taught my parents. Now, I come to see the clearer view of my purpose in life and my faith and testimony continues in becoming stronger. I am always be grateful for the Atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ in my life. Without Christ's church, I am nowhere. For in this church - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - I have found my life. Because I feel the Savior's love through the Spirit. The Spirit touched my heart... and always. I am a Mormon! I know it. I live it. I love it.

How I live my faith

I have served a sacred full-time mission in Philippines Iloilo Mission which gave me lots of opportunities to serve the people in Iloilo (Panay Island). The church and my mission helped me to become the person that I want. My sacred mission always reminds me the lessons I've learned, principles I've lived, and attributes I've developed. There is no permanent thing in the world aside from "change". And I know that eveyday is a first day, a day to change, change for the better. Just like in the mission, I set goals to live at least one attribute a month (i.e. Hope) and I still do the same. And for us to be able to go back to our dear loving Heavenly Father, we need to be spiritually matured. Three simple things are essential: pray, study the scriptures, and attend Church services and activities. I set goals to always go to the Temple at least once a month since I got home from my mission though distance is quite a concern. But if you have faith, nothing is impossible. I have called to many callings which I know a blessing not only to those whom I am serving, but for me. I am learning from them. I was called mostly in Young Women Organization, also in Young Single Adult, and Sunday School Class. If you are doing what the Lord wants you to do, He will take care of you. Be like the Savior who touches everyone's heart. And if you do, you will for sure feel the strength that the Spirit is giving you.
