I'm a Mormon since May 1997. I was born in Honduras and came to the U.S. back in 1989. The gospel is the back bone in my life.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church, baptized on May 1997, and my homeward is in Twentynine Palms CA. I am a mother of five, four daughters and a son, and a grandma of my first grandson. I am a people person, I have a great attitude and a great sense of humor 90% of the time (not counting when I am sleeping) I have learned to see the good on everything and try to learn the lesson from every experience. I love to sing, write songs, write my memoir, dance, entertain and make others laugh even at my own expense; it is worth it if I see people smiling. I am so playful that is hard to identify who's the mother when I am with my kids. I am a great cook, a peacemaker, a good listener and counselor.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember how when I was young I used to wonder why the missionaries would visit all my neighbors but not me and my family? And what was so special in them that would get my attention so much. I would stand in the front of my porch holding a big smile whenever I'd see them but nothing seemed to work; they would say hello and go straight to my neighbors. It wasn't until 1997 eight years after I left Honduras the country I was born and moved to the US that the miracle happened. One afternoon I was doing some aerobics in my family room when I heard my dogs barking. I went out and saw two young men; one very tall and the other one very short with sunburned arms and cheeks and holding what it looked like a bible. I recognized they were the "Mormon missionaries" and they were actually in my home! I approached them and exclaimed "Do you guys know how many years I have been waiting for you to come and visit my family? Their eyes got wide open as that was the first time they were not only welcomed but wanted. The rest is history, my family and I were baptized on May that same year and sealed for time and eternity on May the following year. I am a Mormon because I have found the truth in this marvelous gospel, and I have a testimony that grows stronger as I search ponder and pray for knowledge and wisdom. This is the church I meant to belong and I feel blessed to be part of it.

How I live my faith

Attending church regularly and living the gospel and taking active part with my callings and honoring my covenants. By supporting our church leaders, and seek for their guidance whenever needed. By trying to be a good example for my loved ones and the people I interact and socialize with, and by sharing my testimony every opportunity I have. By supporting my church leaders, and try to be humble, teachable, and compassionate. By remembering our Lord Jesus Christ atonement.
