Hi I'm Arlene Portillo

I grew up in Mexico, I like to paint, I am a mom of two daughters. I'm Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of two daughters and I went to school in Mexico to study public accounting. I love math! I love to paint and do crafts around the house.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because it is what I was looking for in my life. My baptism has been one of the best decisions I've made. I was looking for something to fill my heart with light and hope, and now I have that light and hope! I have also learned that as I obey all the commandments out of love for God and the Book of Mormon, He gives us the opportunity to love Him, and know Him better. I will continue in this church forever, because I am now very happy, and these past 3 years have been some of the happiest in my whole life.

How I live my faith

I got baptized November 28, 2009 and I have had different callings with in the church. I was primary president which means I helped teach the children within the church. It helped me understand that we are all like children. Now I am serving as a teacher in the Sunday school class and I teach adults how God wants us to leave in order to return to him. The best thing I have tried to do is to always be willing to help others. I have stopped worrying about myself, and now I am just trying to worry about doing what is right. I know that if i do this I will return to live with my family for eternity, and over all return to God. I look foward to one day standing in front of God because I tried to live my lift the best I could, as I promised when I was baptized, and also, because I love Him.
