Hi I'm Paola Paniagua

I like to make difference in everything, as a mom, as a daughter, as a wife. I´m guatemalan, I´m a teacher, I´m happy, I´m mormon.

About Me

I always believe that dreams are the foundation to build great things, I like everything that is different, something creative, something different, I like to apply everything I know in what I love to do,TEACHING CHILDREN, I love to be a teacher, I like when children learn in a different and funny way and when people around me get excited to do the same way. Both, my sister and I have accomplished that goal of making education creative to have a succesful life. I have live Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, I had the opportunity to live with a beautiful family in Idaho, I learned a lot from that community, from people and another culture, I learned to grow potatoes, I had a lot of fun. My parents thought me great me great things in life, hard work, love another, be faithful and respect others. I must say that decoaration is one of my great passions, I decorate my own house and I love when they say they love it.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents thought me since I was a little girl how to live the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ, I keep learning how to be a better person, as a daughter, as a mom and as a wife. The things that I learned when I was a child, will help me to take good decisions and accomplish my great dreams in life. Why am I a mormon? it is not just a life style, is doing things correctly and trying to be happy when you do tnem, things that help me to be a better human being, with good moral principles. I can´t imagine my life without the gospel. I can feel the love of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in everything I do, every day, every step that I take and every thing I have. To obey a commandment of the Lord is more than an obligation, it is an opportunity to learn. Being mormon makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to serve as a teacher in Primary, I Sunday School with adults,with young women, in classes where I help sisters to develop their cook talents, handcrafts and more. When we have services projects, I also help people to learn more about church. When I was younger, being part of the choir was without a question the main thing. Last year we had the great blessing having the open house for our Temple dedication, the night before the dedication, we had a wonderful Cultural Event, I was part of the organization team!!, I learned so much from that, we chose the music, the choreographies, the customs, and seen my work on the stage was the best thing!!
