Hi I'm Monica

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Washington. I LOVE to salsa dance!

About Me

I grew up in the church for my entire life! My family went every Sunday, with a few rare exceptions. I loved growing up and was very involved in different service clubs throughout high school. Once I graduated, I ventured out to study. After coming down with a sickness, I returned home to recover. I ended up getting married fairly young, and had my daughter. Soon after she was born, we ended up getting divorced. For the last ten years, I have been a single mother, gone finished college, and work full time. I am happy to say that I am engaged again, to a WONDERFUL man! We are planning on getting married and sealed together as an eternal family in the next few months!

Why I am a Mormon

I have had many ups and downs in my life, however throughout that-- the Gospel of Jesus Christ has truly been my light, and my foundation. I have found that as I follow the principles of the gospel, and follow His commandments, my life is BLESSED in countless ways. One of my favorite things to do on a daily basis is talk to God. I love to hear the promptings from the Holy Ghost. Jesus Christ is my Savior, I talk to God daily, and He truly speaks to me, as I am living my life to the best of my knowledge EVERY day through the Holy Ghost. I know He loves me and can direct my life as I choose to listen to His promptings.

How I live my faith

Everyday I wake up and I read 3 pages of the Book of Mormon before I get out of bed. From then on ... I try to stay in tune by living my life in a way where I can hear the still small voice. For me it comes in thoughts. I don't actually hear anything -- but I feel and thoughts come to me that are placed there through the Holy Ghost. I live my Faith by keeping the word of wisdom, not drinking, smoking, trying to exercise and eat healthy so my mind and body are alert. When I can I serve others around me. I try to keep my thoughts, words, actions and deeds clean. I look for opportunities to bless the lives of others, through kinds words, or listening. I recognize when things are out of line and try to repent as soon as I can. I am SO blessed to have these guidelines in my life, to help live life to the fullest and receive the peace and joy that comes from following the commandments.
