Hi I'm Marisela

I am a mother of 5, a wife of 1, a sister and friend to everyone around me, a nursing student, and I am a Mormon :)

About Me

I grew up in Mexico. My family moved to Texas when I was in middle school. I have live in Texas since then and I love it. I am a mother of 5 and am currently going to school to be a Registered Nurse. My best friend is my husband. I like to go camping, I like to travel, I like to laugh, and I love to eat and try new foods.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I like truth. I always wished that I had lived in the days when there were living Prophets or when Jesus Christ walked on Earth. When two missionaries talked to me and told me that there was a living Prophet on Earth this day and that the Priesthood that Jesus had, had been restored. I prayed about it and my prayer was answered. I was baptized and have been a Mormon since.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by remembering my Savior Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice. I pray daily to give Him thanks for all the blessings he gives me, and ask that I can love and help those around me as He did. I pray for His guidance that I will know the things that I need to work on to be a better person I am currently an advisor to the Young Women ages 16-18 years old. I found it odd since I was a stubborn teenager. But, I know that it comes from God, and I not only see it as a learning experience for me, but for the YW that I will be able to help so they will not make the mistakes I made as a young woman.
