Hi I'm Manda

Yo!! I was born in Cali-FOR-ni-A. I love to laugh 'til I cry and cook spicy food.

About Me

I love to go out dancing with my family. Watching movies, camping,painting,drawing. I am of Mexican Native American heritage so I enjoy cooking Mexican food. I love spicy food in general. At this time now I am preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I grew up in a bilingual home. I am not exactly fluent in Spanish, but I try. I love to be lazy at home watching movies or drawing,quoting my favorite movies,being goofy laughing with friends and family or be outdoors camping going to the beach,kyaking,swimming.MUSIC!!! Whatevers fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am happiest!!!! I feel peace and comfort when troubles arise. I know who I am and who I want to become. I have sense of direction and that guidance that everyone is in need of. Here's a little background: I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints because my mother before me was introduced to the church by missionaries when she was 17 years old. My father became a member of the church when he was 8 years old. Of course they met and got married and had me their oldest daughter. For reasons between moving here and there across the states I wasn't baptized until I was 10 years old. As I have grown up I have continued to go to church and learn the things of Christ. I haven't always understood everything that was taught,but as I have gotten older and have been able to study the scriptures more effectively and to pray. I know that this gospel is true and it has been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost as I have read the scriptures. I feel happy when I live the ways of this gospel. I am protected from the temptations and dangers that are in this world when I follow what I have been taught and have come to know for myself. Prayer is the key to know the truth of all things and we can always feel whether it right and sent from God.

How I live my faith

Mucho amor!! Showing people that I love them and that God does also.We are all children of God! I believe giving everyone a chance no matter what they look like or who they seem to be. Underneath all the things the world has made of us their is a son or daughter of God who has the potenial to be more like Him someday. I live my faith by trying my best to be an example in the things I say and do. It hard sometimes when what the world has to offer looks fun,but I have seen in my life as I stay close to those things that are most important....family,friends,God,reading His word and going to church I am the happiest and I want others to be happy too!!!
