Hi I'm Liliya

I have a younger sibling. I work in the financial sector. I love the active sports. And I am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am Bulgarian by origin. I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS. My father's friend introduced my whole family to the gospel of Jesus Christ in 1998. I love my family and my friends. I have a younger sister, who I love very much. I am a work-addict; I like my job as a Mortgage Loan Sales Coordinator. I enjoy the outdoors, especially during spring and fall. I like playing tennis and volleyball, riding my bike, travel to exotic places, and socializing with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of LDS, because I can feel the Holy Spirit's influence. I am a Christian and a follower of Christ. I feel happier when I read my scriptures, pray to God, and go to church meetings and activities. Practicing actively my faith, I feel closer to God as my testimony grows and my heart is humbled. I feel stronger to face my obstacles when I have God's favor. Due to the gospel, I have found the things that have a meaning in my life to be-being with my family, serving others, always learning, recognizing intangible achievements. I go to church each time, because I am comfortable there; it gives me a direction and shows me the way back to Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have had different callings in my ward, but the one to have influenced me the most personally is to be a visiting teacher. Visiting-teaching has helped me to understand how valuable to God is each person; each woman I visit is an important individual with her own story in the eyes of God. He is our Father in Heaven, who cares for each of us, because we are his children. I feel that sometimes all of us need a friend to talk to, because we are lost, weak, or lonely; we want to be rescued and we wait for someone to do that. As a visiting-teacher, I am a friend to someone in need of a friend. God works his goodness through people. By ministering to the women in my ward, I have found happiness and true friendship.
