Hi I'm Denise Silva

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love reading and watching family friendly theatrical performances.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was 14. My family and I were searching for a church to join. We asked our friends where they attended church. We would visit the different churches mentioned by our friends. One day my dad asked his insurance salesman where he went to church. His insurance salesman answered that he attended the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He asked if we would like to have the missionaries come over to our home and teach us. The missionaries came to teach us. I had never attended any church on a regular basis before and I had no knowledge of the scriptures. The missionaries taught us about Heavenly Father's plan of for us, where we came from, why we are here, and where we will go after this life. The message felt familiar, as if I knew about it before I was born. I felt that what I was hearing was true and that we do have a Heavenly Father that loves us.

How I live my faith

I know that I am a child of God. I know that he hears and answers prayers. I know that he loves me. I know that I can return to live with him. I know that by following his teachings in this life, I have found great peace and happiness. Some activities that have brought me joy in this life are: reading my scriptures daily, attending the temple, teaching members of the church, serving members of the church and in my community, watching family friendly movies and performances, donating to Humanitarian Aid efforts and prayer.
