Hi I'm Giancarlo

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 music I played bass guitar in my brother's band. One of my favourite hobbies is to play soccer with my friends. I like to read books and watch movies (especially with my family :) ).

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 16. Even though at the beginning I didn't understand everything 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 live and about the truth. Participating in different meetings in different religions gave me the opportunity to learn about the different religious beliefs. I remember one night when I was praying, I was very worried about my "salvation" and my family salvation. 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 will 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 she 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 we all joined the Church. However, my understanding of the gospel principals came little by little, precept by precept, following all the commitments, I gained a Testimony of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. I'm still learning the treasures that are founded in the Book of Mormon and the Bible.

How I live my faith

Actually I'm serving as a missionary in the Florida Ft Lauderdale Mission. I love to share the Gospel. The most important think is to learn how to love and be an example for the people around you, 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 as Love us. Service for other is one of the ways we can show love for others. So we try to help all the people regardless of religious belief. Show more Show less
