Hi I'm Carmela M. Gonzalez

I'm a Mormon. I grew up as a small town, farm girl now living in the most gorgeous place on earth doing what I love.

About Me

They call me a hot computer geek. But I think I'm just a single mom of two fun loving boys living in Southern California making it happen. I'm living the great life. I own a small online marketing company handling social media accounts for amazing doctors of whom I've learned so much about health, love and compassion.

Why I am a Mormon

God brings people into our lives for a reason and just at the right time. When I was 10, my brother and I were riding our bikes to our brothers house where along the way we met two amazing men who just so happened to be on their way to our brothers house as well. We went along and heard about this amazing church. That day changed my life. My brother and I were baptized shortly there after and have remained in the church ever since. I can not imagine living without the gospel. I love the church, its principles and teachings. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet given the authority by God to translate and restore the true gospel of the world. I know and respect our current prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I believe the foundation of the church is about family and know that a family that prays together stays together forever. The church has given me direction, understanding, and motivation to be the best that I can. The best mother, the best friend, the best wife, and the best co worker. It has given me a path to leave a legacy of truth for my family and children. I know that the gospel is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I know because I have tested my beliefs. It is true, clear and simple. Its a church that makes perfect sense. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen

How I live my faith

I believe what we read, watch hear and consume will manipulate our actions and behavior. I want others to know I'm a Christian so I try to act that way as much as possible. I serve as much as I can, helping out at church events, friends move or helping out with local community events. I have a couple church callings that I love. It gives me the ability to show off my God given talents.

What is faith?

It's pure hope in things and believing that those things will happen. Show more Show less
