Hi I'm Mariajose

I am Guatemalan, I am a student studying to be an elementary school teacher. I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I was born in LA to 2 Guantemalans. My father is a black guatemalan my mother is not, he left us when I was 5. my mother struggled as a single mother but was an excellent mother. She remarried and my step father is the most amazing father, I couldnt have asked for better. We moved to Las Vegas and this is where I learned of the Mormon church. after about 8 years of living there I was aproached by the missionaries who lived next door and my sister and I started taking the lessons. My mother was a little harder to convinve but after about a million crazy questions from each of us we decided to join the church. we were all baptized Valentines day 2009. I met my husband while he was serving his mission in Las Vegas, he was an amazing missionary and a great friend. After he finished his mission we started talking long distance and soon he was visiting me every 2 weeks, he drove from Provo UT to Las Vegas NV for a total of 1 year and a half. We Married June 2011. We both attend school in Provo.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I I believe with all of my heart that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I know that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God and I know that The bible and the book of mormon compliment eachother perfectly. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the Gospel and I know that he was a true prophet of God. I know that Thomas S Monson is also a True prophet of God and I know that by listening to the words of the prophets I am living my life the way that my Heavenly father wants me to. I know that families can be together forever and that is such a conforting thing to know. I know that one day I will return to my heavenly father and as long as I follow his commandments, read my scriptures and pray I will feel the spirit and know that my Heavenly father loves me. I know this Gospel is true. I say all of these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
