Hi I'm Eliana

I’m originally from Chile. I live in Atlanta for more than 20 years. I’m an Accountant, Dental Lab Technician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grow up in Chile; I’m a pioneer in my family. Even though my family is not member of the church, we are 8 siblings! I’m married for 33 years; my husband and I have a beautiful family, three children, 4 handsome grandsons and beautiful granddaughter waiting in Heaven for us. One of the things that I enjoy the most is being a grandma. I love my family!

Why I am a Mormon

It was 30 years ago that my husband’s friend and his girlfriend from College shared the good news to us. After a long conversation with our friends, we agree to receive the missionaries at our home, those two young men’s teachings, change our lives forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith praying every day to give thanks to God for me, my family, extended family, and friends, to ask for guidance in my life, I live my faith serving at Church, I have been in many positions that had gave me an opportunity to learn and teach the gospel, I had worked in different organizations. I worked with children in 'Primary", with women, as "Relief Society President" twice, as teacher in the same organization, with 'Young Women" as a secretary, and now I’m a "Sunday School Teacher" for adults. I love to teach! Reading the scriptures, manuals, and conference talks gives me strength to live every day trying to be more like Jesus. As family, we also hold weekly meeting that we call “Family Home Evening”, which we use to teach the Gospel to our children.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another witness that Jesus Christ really lived. The most significant event that is recorded in the Book of Mormon is the personal ministry of Jesus Christ among those who inhabited the ancient America. I bear my testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Because of this, I know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I know that he did not write the Book of Mormon but translated it by the power of God. Show more Show less
