Hi I'm Peseta

Hey I'm Peseta. I am currently serving a full-time mission. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really appreciate the beauty found in art, whether it comes from a collage of words, a sculpture, a painting, dance, or music. I play the tuba. I really enjoy transcendentalist work, and most all poetry. I'm generally a vegetarian, when not on a mission. I have worked mowing lawns and in general landscaping, and waiting tables in IHOP. I lack about 7 years of college to become the bone doctor that I dream of being. It is a good thing that education fascinates me! I really enjoy traveling. I have been incredibly privileged to travel as much as I have. I'm currently serving my mission in Chihuahua, Mexico. I love to serve, and I can hardly wait to one day serve a mission with my wife. I have incredible parents who have been examples to me my entire life, and have kept me from straying too far from the straight and narrow. I have always looked up to my brother and can only hope to be how he is one day. My two little sisters are my favorite people to pick on. They have an unlimited supply of patience for my silly pranks. I just love my family, and the greatest comfort that I have in this life is knowing that I will be with them FOREVER!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have seen and experienced sweet peace of this Gospel. I have felt the pure love of my Savior. I have felt the spirit answer my questions, and bring peace to my soul. I feel His presence, like breathing in fresh air, and by this feeling I know that through Jesus Christ I can be changed. I know I can return to my Father in Heaven through the Church of Jesus Christ and that is the assurance that I want to bring to the World.

How I live my faith

As I learn more about Jesus Christ's ministry and example, I strive to reconcile myself with my Father in Heaven. To make His will mine. And to seek and do exactly what Jesus Christ would do if he were in my situation. I try to live my testimony to the letter in a way that can be recognized. And I invite all others to do the same.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is a knowledge that we receive from God. It can come through feeling, impressions, even dreams! It is a free assurance that our Heavenly Father gives us, however, it always comes after the trial of our faith. That means that we must first exercise our faith by doing some action, such as reading or praying, before we know that said action is true. For me, I feel a feeling of assurance that lets me know that what I have done is correct, and I know that this impression comes from God because it is consistent with my actions, and through this testimony, I know that I am headed toward a better place.
