Hi I'm Denisse

A happy Puertorican living in North Carolina, super blessed because "I'm a Mormon."

About Me

At the age of 17 I remember gathering with part of my family to listen to these two missionaries who thought us the pure gospel of Jesus Christ. They brought with them the spirit of Christ and at that time I didn't recognize it, but that was definatly the spirit testifying to us the truth of the gospel and that feeling was amazing. We got baptized and embarked in a wonderful journey that has brought great blessing and direction to my life. I've been blessed with a wonderful family and two cute children one is three years old and the other is two. As a stay at home mom i do have lots of challenges each day but through the knowledge of the gospel it helps me understand better my purpose and serve my family and those around me to the best of my ability. We have had many trials but that has made us stronger.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church because of those burning feeling in my heart assuring me of the truthfulness of the message that those missionaries had brought to us. I knelt down and prayed as well and did receive answer to my prayers. Before going to this church i did go sometimes to other churches that my friends would invite me over i remember not having these feelings i felt totally opposit. As i became a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Later Day Saints i continued having wonderful experiences that would tell me over and over again that i was in the right place at the right time because things began to be more clear to my understanding of life and what i needed to do. I've gain a better understanding of the love Heavenly Father has for me. One of the many ways i have felt His love is by sending His perfect son to this world and the wonderful things that He has done for us. Jesus sacrificed everything for us and because of these great sacrifice i can if i follow his commandment be able to enjoy of the full blessing that God has for me and my family. We can enjoy being together forever. I know that its so important to have a leader to guide us in these troubled days thats why we have prophets i know that they really are messengers from God. Just like the many prophets in the bible there area prophets today from Joseph Smith to President Monson we do have the privilege to have modern day prophets it as been another great blessing in my life. Im so imperfect but i know that as i try my best to do what the Savior Jesus Christ ask from me I can have that peace of mind that things will be alright here and in the time to come.

How I live my faith

When i decided to follow Jesus Christ i accepted to do what he asked from me, to give of my time and talents in the service of others. I like to dance its a way to express my feeling and i was able to share my talent when i dance with the Folk dance group Ballet Mormon Zarahemla witch is a folk dance group it was super fun and it was a way to go out and share with other our beliefs and talents. Through these past 10 years that I've been a member I've had the opportunity to serve as a missionary in the Albuquerque New Mexico mission, that was a super amazing experience to see others lives changes for better its amazing and to gain everlasting friends is wonderful. I try to live my faith every day doing those things that edify and make me happy visiting other members from our church and serving in the church. I have been able to serve with children a lot and Im learning so much from this little spirits, and I'm trying to follow the counsel of the Savior to be like them. I love the gospel and its what keeps me enduring every day.
