Hi I'm Vanessa Carulla

I grew up on the island of Saipan, and moved to Colorado. I am a Nanny and loving the sweet and sour of that job. I am a Mormon!

About Me

Hello, everyone! I am currently living in this beautiful land of Colorado. I have come a long way and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to live here. Being part of this sweet and pure gospel creates who I am, and why I live my life the way I do. My father passed away when I was ten years old. That was one of the hardest things that have ever happened to me. But I can tell you, that my testimony of the plan of Salvation has increased through the years. Loosing someone that you love dearly is not easy, but the experiences and the lessons that you learn is sweet. Through our daily trials and challenges we will come to know who your Father in Heaven is, and the love that He has for His children. Through the many miracles and blessings that he has bestowed upon me makes me want to keep living the life that He has blessed me with.

Why I am a Mormon

My mom introduce the gospel to my dad. And they have done such an incredible job teaching me the ways of the Lord, and how I should live the gospel. There was a time in my life that I needed to know if this gospel is true. There is only so much that a teacher can do, but its up to us if we are willing to grasp into that pure and sweet fruit. When I left for college, my testimony of the gospel increased. Leaving everything you love behind and moving to a place where I barely know anyone was hard for me, but knowing that I am where God wants me to be is all that I needed to push through my daily trials and challenges. Living the gospel is not easy, but it is worth it. The Lord loves each of one of us, and he will never leave us astray. He has been by my side even more as I continue to let Him in. Knowing that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me eternally is mainly the reason why I still live my life as a Latter Day Saints. He never gave up on me, and I know He will never give up on you.

How I live my faith

I love being an example of a disciple of Christ. It is through the principles and ordinances that we have is what keeps me going. When I was a teenager, I use to complain about the many rules and standards that we have, and I never come to understand why we have them till I got older. They are there to protect us, and give us more freedom. I know when we live our lives according to the commandments of God, we will find ourselves happier and more free than ever. I live my life as if my Savior is there beside me. That itself, is where I find myself filled with love and happiness.
