Hi I'm Deborah

Debbie, Deb, Deborah? I'll take it. Dancing is My Verb. I love to cook, SMILE, share the Gospel with others and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I come from a very large family of eight brothers and sisters with both of my loving parents. I have such wonderful parents that taught me what I need to do in my everyday life to become the kind of person Heavenly Father wants me to be. I grew up in a third world country, in a very small country in the middle of Africa called Central Africa Republic. My parents were separated because of political issues. I grew up most of my life without my father until I moved to California in 2005 to live with my family. I am a very committed person, a soccer player, a math lover studying accounting at BYU-Idaho. I love and enjoy dancing, singing, and cooking. I love people and I love smiling and laughing, a lot. I love children and I hope to be a mom someday. I love helping other people and I just recently returned from serving as a missionary of the Church in the North Carolina Charlotte Mission.I am so thankful for the Atonement of Jesus Christ! I know God lives and Jesus Christ is His Son.

Why I am a Mormon

In September 2005, two weeks after I moved to United States, my father invited the missionaries over to my house. At that time, I didn't speak any English, but thankfully, my dad was my interpreter when the missionaries would come over. They offered me a Book of Mormon in French and told me that they won't force me and that they really encourage me to read it. I decided to give it a try. It was very interested and I would read that book almost everywhere I go. During lunch at school, I would find a spot, and read the Book of Mormon. It became my best friend due to the fact that I didn't make any friend because of my language barrier. I read the whole brook cover to cover in a little over two months then I decided to get baptize because I finally found what I was looking for. I remember praying about the Book of Mormon, I knew and felt it in my heart that It is true and that it testifies of Jesus Christ. I know the fulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored on the earth today. The Book of Mormon is true. God lives and loves us. I am a Mormon because so many blessings have been pour out on my head because of the decision that I have made to become a member of this Church. I know that if you pray with all your heart to know the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, God will give you clarity. I am a proud Mormon! I will forever be grateful for the Book of Mormon and all the blessings it has brought me! I LOVE IT AND I MEAN IT!

How I live my faith

I love the phrase, "I am Mormon. I know it. I Live it. I Love it." I am not ashamed of the Gospel and I love sharing it with everyone around me. I love volunteer work. I love reaching out to those in needs, as well as helping and setting an example for my brothers and sisters to follow my footsteps. I know who I am, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ and I strive to show it through my actions, my behaviors, my deeds and my speech everyday of my life. I LOVE PEOPLE! Being from a different country, I've come to love and enjoy all the differences and the uniqueness of every single person I come in contact with. My daily goal is to make sure someone smiles, or just a constant reminder of how much they're loved by their Heavenly Father.
