I am a very talkative person and I like to be surrounded by good friends :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a Mormon family, I go to church since I was very small. When I had 6 my father was called to be bishop so my family and I are very attached to the church. Even though I go to church since little I didn´t understand the meaning of many things, I went to curch because my parents took me there and I just obey many years later I develop my own testimony when I grew up and I entered to the Young Women organization. There I had to fulfill a book called "My Personal Progress" doing that I understood many things that the church teach. At first I didn't want to do it, was so big and I had to do so many things that I used to think that I will never finish it. Then with the support of my leaders I started working my book little by little and I finish it when I turned 18. I am ver grateful with the Young Woman organization, there I learnt a lot and I developed my love for my Holy Father, I love Him with all my heart I know that He loves me too, I am his daughter and He want the best for me, also i love my older brother Jesuschrist and I am deeply grateful with Him, He gave His life for me so I can repent and retourn to his presence. I know this is the true church I have no doubt of it, I have a strong testimony, and it grows up when I read my scriptures, The book of Mormon is so unique so special, when I do my prayers, when I go to church and when I do things that please my Holy Father. I am happy belonging to this church it gives peace to my life.

How I live my faith

I work at the Young Women organization I am the secretary, I have to do the budges for the activities we may have, I help to do the mutuals every saturday from 4pm to 6pm we teach the girls to live acording to good values and to develop their skills. For example one day we made pizza and we saw videos of the curch, another day we taught them how to knit a scarf and so on. I assist to seminary every morning from monday to friday from 6am to 7 am, now we are studying Doctrine and Covenants. Sometime is really hard to wake up so early but by big sacrifices you receive great blessings. I belong to an organization whis is specific for young people who are not married. we have our mutuals every saturdays we do very funny activities. I like to go out with them because we all have the same beliefs and we do things acording to our values. We go to the cinema, to mormon parties, we play sports and we spend time doing youth things we spend time doing youth things but always with the spirit.
