About Me

I love to Play sports! I play Basketball and football. Love Watching the Thunder! Go OKC! and love watching the Lakers and Spurs lose! haha! I come from a family of 5. I have the best family! and the best Close relatives and friends! I live in Gilbert Arizona. I grew up in the Church and its always been a big part of my life. I love music! and movies! Especially when they are super funny or have tons of action! I love smiling and laughing! Life is so much better when we choose to be happy and laugh and thats exactly what i try to do. I have always been an active member of the Church but everything in my life changed when i decided to serve a mission! My mission means the world to me! I know that every good thing in my life is a result of my mission and choosing to serve the Lord! RIght now I am a Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Shelbyville Kentucky and am so lucky to be serving the spanish community! .

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the Church of Jesus Christ. I know that just like in times of old the Church of Jesus Christ is once again on the Earth. I know that Jospeh Smith at the age of 14 saw God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ. Through Joseph Smith they restored the gospel of Jesus Christ and all the authority and blessings that come with it. I know that there is a prophet on the Earth today and his name is Thomas S Monson. I know that Jesus lives and that he is the Son of God. I know that the Savior of the World died for me and for everyone who has ever lived or who will ever live. He took on the sins, pains, sufferings, sadness and aflictions of the World in the Garden of Gethsemane. I know that he died on the cross for everyone. I know that 3 days later he arose from the grave and that he lives today! God loves all his children and because he loves us he sent his only begotten son. Jesus wants all of us to return to live with our father in Heaven. He simply asks that we obey his commandments and follow him. I am a Mormon becasue i want to follow the Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best that i can to follow the commandments of God. I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Jesus Chrsit is here to bless and protect us. I try everyday to increase my faith in my savior to repent daily for my mistakes. Every Sunday to renew my baptismal covenant and to always remain worthy of the Holy Ghost. Ultimately i am trying to endure to end and to continue everyday to better myself and become more like my Heavenly Father so one day i can be worthy to live with him again. THere are so many ways in this life that we can exercise and grow our faith but when we apply the basic principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ which are Faith, Repentance, Baptism, The Gift of the Holy Ghost and Enduring to the end into our lives we will see so many changes and miracles. And thats what happened in my life. I chose one day to actually live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and apply it to my daily life and i havent been happier since the day i choose to do that! I promise it will be the same for you!
