Hi I'm Stephanie Ramirez

I'm a Californian that grew up in Utah. I'm a University Student, I'm a Cosmetologist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a crazy yet exciting Hispanic Family. My father comes from Mexico and my mother comes from Guatemala. But I was born in beautiful California, and yet I was raised in the amazing Utah. Everyday is an exciting adventure for me. I'm currently a University Student, with a great job in our family business, and a Licensed Hair and Make-Up Artist.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church so for me going to church was only a routine. I wasn't until I was 14 that I questioned my faith and desired to gain my own testimony. Well, I can testify that when you ask the Lord in humble prayer, you WILL receive an answer. Since then I dedicated myself in becoming a better young women, daughter, and future mother.

How I live my faith

I was raised in the church so for me going to church was only a routine. I wasn't until I was 14 that I questioned my faith and desired to gain my own testimony. Well, I can testify that when you ask the Lord in humble prayer, you WILL receive an answer. Since then I dedicated myself in becoming a better young women, daughter, and future mother. Because of my dedication I was constantly given callings in the Young Women, and even to this day (though I haven't been a young women in years) I participate in the Young Women's Program.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Stephanie Ramirez
There is a strong tradition of missionary service in the Church. Generally, Missionaries begin serving when they are from 19 to 21 years old and serve from a period of 18 months to 2 years. Missions are actually voluntary, and missionaries are not paid for their service. We as church members consider it a privilege to show their love for other people and the Lord by sharing the gospel. A missionary to me is someone who leaves their family for a short period of time, so that other may be with their families for Eternity. Show more Show less
