Hi I'm Juanique

I'm an Injury Therapist. I'm a South African in the USA. I'm a young bride. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in beautiful South Africa until 15 years of age. My family and I then immigrated to the USA where I started my new life with them. Although I sound American for the most part, my roots and mannerisms will forever remain South African. I met my husband (on a blind date) when I was 17, got engaged to him when I was 18 and then married him when I was 19 years old. We now live in Colorado where he's studying Contemplative Psychology at Naropa University and I'm running my own business as a and Neurostructural and Injury Massage therapist. In my spare time I enjoy running, exercising, reading, board games and blogging. I plan to return to school to study nutrition and dietetics so I can incorporate it into my practice in the near future and further help all my clients that come to see me.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose every day to be a Mormon because It brings me unprecedented happiness to live the full gospel of Jesus Christ. Being a Mormon isn't about doing, it's about being. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches me and reminds me everyday of who I am, why I'm here and what I can become. It helps me to be the best person I can be. It give me meaning and quality, it helps me see the world and all that exists in it an eternal perspective.

How I live my faith

I participate in my community by teaching and being a part of a youth organization for girls ages 12-18. I help teach life and gospel lessons and participate in youth activities. I work with the coolest girls in the world! Seriously, they rock!

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

The beauty of our world tells me there is a God. There is some unseen force that resonates with the natural beauty of our earth. This force stands for something that goes beyond understanding for me. However, I know that there was no mistake or suddenness to our creation, there was purpose, design and divine intelligence to it all. The scriptures tell us that "all things testify of Christ", so to me, these things testify of his existence every day. Show more Show less
