Hi I'm Sandra

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My parents are converts and I'm a Mormon since I was born. I've been married for 4 1/2 years and we're expecting our first baby. I'm very happy that we're able to bring this life to this Earth and experience this amazing journey of family life. I love Heavenly Father's creations and to photograph them. I also love to travel and spend some quality time with my family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I grew up being a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I didn't really have the experience of having the missionaries teach me the lessons and I didn't have to make a decision whether I wanted to become a Mormon or not. But I did have to decide wheather I wanted to continue being a Mormon or not. For me, my conversion happened steady and slowly. I had to work on obtaining my own testimony, and it didn't come all at once. Throughout my teenage years was when I sought to obtain my testimony and I worked on one commandment at a time. One by one I received the confirmation that the church teachings are true and that I wanted my own family to live the same standards. For me, one of the main reasons why I know this church is true is because it's the church of Jesus Christ and He shows me that the principles I learn in the church and in the scriptures are true, He shows me how much better my life can be if I do what he says because He knows and loves me, He shows me through my feelings and through the events in my life. He shows me in the small daily things that He's there for me, so when my leaders at chucrch teach me something, I have the confirmation about its true throught my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

My husband and I moved to the USA from Brazil 1 year ago for work, and we moved to a city where we had never been before. We also didn't know anyone here, but the fact that we have the church was a peace of mind. The very first time we went to church we felt welcomed and we knew they were our new church family. And that's how we treat and deal with them: as our family and friends. I soon received a calling, I was called to work as a secretary in the children's organization. Visiting teachers were assigned to me, which is, 2 women come visit me once a month to share a message of the gospel and of course, we talk about many other things, just like friends, they're about my age and we became good friends. I have a companion and we visit teach a couple of other women every month too. I've had the opportunity to develop not only my spiritual side but also my intelectual and social side many times in church such as: participating in plays, sports, learning about arts and crafts, camping, dances, cooking and so many other things we do together as a church family.
