Hi I'm Damaris

I grew up in a small city in Colombia, I married the love of my life, have two beautiful children and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My parents were raised in a different faith, they were very religious and devoted but my mom always felt something was missing until she met the Mormon missionaries in the small city we lived in Colombia. She got baptized when I was just over a year old. I'm the youngest of three children. I grew up in the church and I am thankful to my mother for listening and believing, for being patient with my dad and waiting for him to get all his questions about the church answered. Now I have a family of my own and I want my children to enjoy the loving principles of the gospel I grew up with, to know that all the blessings I have received in my life are because of my mother's decision to join the church and the teachings I learned from a young age. Above all, I want my children to know that Jesus lives and He is our Savior.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because living the principles of this Gospel has brought me great happiness in my life. I know with all my heart and mind that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has the restored gospel on the Earth. Because I have lived the blessings of the priesthood in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with my family at home and in our church. I teach little children at church about Jesus, very basic things of course, but here and there we have a moment with them when the Spirit warms their hearts and they know that I'm teaching them about Someone that loves them very much. At home we pray with our children, we bless the food, we thank our Heavenly Father for all the blessings we receive. We read the scriptures and pray as a couple. We hold family home evenings and sing a song and teach them about Jesus. We try to keep the company of the Holy Ghost so we can receive inspiration about all the things in our life
