Hi I'm Faith

I was born and grew up in Philadelphia, PA but my family comes from Puerto Rico. I am a school teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Faith. I am very happy to be a wife, mother, grandmother, and school teacher. I have a positive attitude towards life and our mission here on earth. God wants us to succeed in our mission and will help us if we let him.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of its truthfulness. I have read the Book of Mormon and found that it teaches about the same Jesus Christ I learned about in the bible. My good Christian mother taught me to pray, to love the Lord, and to love his teachings. She taught me the scripture from Matthew 7:16 “Ye shall know them by their fruits”. I prayed for a witness to know if the church was true and received a witness from the Holy Ghost. From the time that I joined the church in 1977 to today, I have witnessed so much good fruit that I could never deny the church and its truthfulness. This church has helped me to grow closer to my Savior and to understand the great plan He has for each of us, his children.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith day by day, growing, learning and serving others pretty much the same way Jesus taught us to live through his example. I read my scriptures and say my prayers and ask for the Lord to guide me through the Holy Ghost. Then I go about my life applying the Christ-like attributes I learn and make them a part of my daily life. This means that I forgive others who might hurt me and ask for forgiveness when I might hurt others. I attend church on Sundays and serve in my calling teaching the children about Jesus Christ. I love singing the songs that teach of the Savior's love for them and feeling the sweet spirit that abides there. I try to stay in touch with family members, even those who live far away, to let them know that I love them and want to be a part of their lives even if we don't share the same religion.
