Hi I'm Renata van Dodewaard

I'm a mom, a wife, a student and a mormon!

About Me

My name is Renata and I 24 years old. I was born in Brazil but I came to the Netherlands in 2007. I married a dutch ex-missionary and we now live in Rotterdam. We have a lovely dochter of almost 2 years old. I love to travel. My love for culture inspired me study Geography and Environmental Analysisy for 2 years at the University of Belo Horizonte. And now to study history at the Hogeschool Rotterdam. I love to teach, ride my bike, bake, play piano and read.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that He died for me. I know that God lives and He love his childrens. I'm a mormon because I believe that families can be forever. When I knelt in prayer I recive guidance and direction in my life. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity to serve in the auxiliaries of the Church. I've helped children to learn more about the gospel and follow the exemple of Jesus Christ. I now serve with all my heart to help the women in the church with whatever they might need. If there's a sister with a broken heart, a sister in need, a sister with troubles, I want be there to help her. I came to realize that God loves us and cares for us and we should love everyone too. Serving others has taught me how to become a better wife and mother.
