Hi I'm Nila

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. I teach theatre to underprivelaged children, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to act and direct and to teach others how to as well. I love the great outdoors and the adventures you can have in them. I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom was a convert, and my dad was born in the church. Growing up, my parents struggled with being active in church, but there was always a foundation there that I knew my Heavenly Father loved me and was looking out for us. When I was thirteen years old and becoming active in our young women's program, I decided it was time to find out for myself. There are a lot of high expectations, and if it wasn't true, there was no point in living up to them. I decided to read The Book of Mormon cover to cover and pray about its truthfulness. The rest is history. :) The testimony I received of the truthfulness of the restored Gospel has gotten me through many a tough time. I know my Savior lives, there is a prophet of God today, and that The Book of Mormon is a true and accurate account of followers of Christ.

How I live my faith

I am the committee chairperson for the young single's cultural committee. I help put together uplifiting and exciting cultural activities that members of my church can go to together and share with others. I love seeing people get excited about the arts and learn they have an interest they didn't think was there.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Through the gift of the Holy Ghost, we can receive guidance and counsel about our personal decisions. We can also receive warnings and comfort when occasion arises. The gift of the Holy Ghost is a constant companion if we receive that gift and live worthy of it. It is a magnificent blessing. Show more Show less
