Hi I'm Tootsie

Born and raised in California, bay area. I love volleyball. I love music and family time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I am 23 and I come from a family of 4 brothers and 1 sister. I am number 2. I love sports and love my family time. My motto these days seems to be "work hard, play hard and nap hard." I love bowling and talking to anyone and everyone. I have a great love for the Savior and his gospel. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I Mormon? I love that the gospel brings me such happiness. Living up to the standards of the church helps me not only to stay grounded but to know where I am headed. The church is really big on families and knowing that I can build my relationship with them and know that I too can live with them forever is just wonderful. I know who I am and what I can do to help others do the same. The church is amazing and so is the Lord. Through service is when I see others happiness and that brings a joy to me like no other.

How I live my faith

Well as for rightnow I am serving a full-time mission and I love it and the people I am able to help out. I love service projects and I am all about helping others do yard work or sports or just good company. I am willing to share my testimony with all people. I live my faith by doing things for others that they may not know they could have done on their own. I am away from home helping others to make their family a forever family.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Through the gift of the Holy Ghost we can feel the truth of the things that are told in the scriptures. We are able to feel more the love that God has for us as individuals. We can also have the Holy Ghost to be are guide and help lead us in the right direction so that when the day comes we can be able to live in the presence of Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. In the scriptures we learn that all good things come from God and anything else that brings the opposite is of Satan. Because God loves us he wants to bless us with all things that will help uplift us and one of the greatest gifts is the gift of the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

I know for myself I wanted to not only know of our Father in Heaven I wanted to know him personally and the way that was possible for me and for all is to go to him in prayer. It is our line of communication and it is the way we can feel his love for us. I have always heard that if we want to talk to God we need to pray and if we want for him to talk to us then we need to read our scriptures. In the Book of Mormon there is a great invitation for all to read the book and then to ask God if the things which we read are true. Because he loves us he will answer our prayers. A great scripture in the Bible is found in the book of James 1:5. Heavenly Father is just waiting for us to turn to him and ask and as we do so he will answer us. Show more Show less
