Hi I'm Giancarlo

I'm a father, an husband. I'm graduate in Psychology. I love music and... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm graduate in Psychology, I studied in Florence. I love trying to understand what is in people's minds and why we do what we do. I also love to spend time with my family. One of my favourite hobbies is to play soccer with my friends. I like to read books and watch movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 16. Even though at the beginning I didn't understand a lot about it I knew God was guiding me to His Church. I grew up as a Catholic but I was never really active in that religion. I also attended many meetings with the Hare Krishna because one of my mother's friend was part of that religion. The time arrived when I started to have questions about the meaning of life and about the truth. Participating in different meetings in different religions gave me the opportunity to learn about different religious beliefs. I remember one night when I was praying, I was very worried about the "salvation" my family. Being not active in any religion, I was worried that if I had died at that time without having any of the ordinances of salvation taught in the Church of the New Testament established by Jesus I would have been lost, so I was praying to Heavenly Father to Help me and my family. Sometimes later my sister was invited to perform in a talent show activity in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At the activity my mother saw a picture of President Gordon B. Hinkley and the 12 Apostles, she was curious and invited the Missionaries to share more with my family about the Church. Because of the doctrine of Eternal Families, the word of wisdom and others teachings after few weeks my all family joined the Church. However, my understanding of the gospel principles came little by little, precept by precept, trying to follow the commandments, I gained a Testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm still learning the treasures that are found in the Book of Mormon and the Bible.

How I live my faith

I love to share the Gospel. Trying to be a good example for the people around me, and trying to develop Christlike attributes. This is how I'm trying to live my faith.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints we follow what is taught in the scriptures. Jesus taught we have to Love one another as He has Loved us. Service for others is one of the ways we can show love. We try to help all people regardless of their religious belief. Show more Show less
