Hi I'm Ruth

I'm a Knowledge Junkie, I'm a Traveler, and I'm a Mormon. I'm also a soon to be missionary to Guayaquil Ecuador North.

About Me

I am the only girl out of three siblings. 2 brothers and myself. I am the only one of my parents children to be baptized, hopefully we can change that later. I was converted when I was 17, and it took me 3 months to get baptized into this faith. I grew up in this church, both of my parents were converted at my age and they grew to serve missions and have an eternal marriage. My father was the one that became inactive before I turned 8, ergo why I was not baptized earlier. I am called to server in the Guayaquil Ecuador North Mission! So here I come investigators, and non-believers! Other than reading scriptures and going to YSA events, I like to read books, draw, paint, and swim!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was younger I felt as if my parents where the ones pressuring me into this religion, into any religion for that matter. I was a miserable youth, without the church. I didn't know why I was so miserable. I think it was my lack of believing, my lack of something good in my life. Now that I have the church and my connection with heavenly father, my life is getting better. The many blessings that being converted into this faith has given me, has not only made me a better sibling, but a better person, a better woman. Being a mormon is not a bad thing, it is a great thing. Knowing that I will have an eternal partner, and be saved, is a great and wonderful thing. Helping others understand this gospel and how it works, and all of the blessings that are poured unto us by Heavenly Father is an amazing reason!

How I live my faith

I did work with the young women as a president. I helped teach them spiritual lessons and also material lessons. Every Tuesday I'd go for about 2 to 3 hours and help out the young women. I think it's a great thing, keeping kids out of trouble and helping them become social. It's a powerful thing to help shape a person and help them make good choices for their futures. I am currently in a YSA ward and I'm a ward Missionary! I received my calling as a Missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on the 22nd of February; I am called to serve in the Guayaquil Ecuador North Mission. I live my faith by spreading it and using words when necessary.
