Hi I'm Quwenci

I'm happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a currently a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have a passion for art; singing, dancing, painting, sketching and photography. I love the out doors! Hiking, and rock climbing allow me to see the beauty of Gods creations. I am a daughter and a big sister. I have 8 amazing siblings and 3 parents that I love with all my heart.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family of Mormons. I was raised in the church. With that being said no family even a Mormon family is perfect. My dad had addictions and trials I may never fully understand but his choices left my family in a lot of pain. Due to the abuse he inflicted on me I too started on a path of addiction. In the summer of 2009 my mother started filing for divorce. Shortly after my dad moved out his addictions left us 4 kids fatherless. I was so broken inside. I didn't know how to cope with all that had happened. For a while I was very angry and let my addiction take over. I felt a so much pressure to be strong and help my family heal. I felt a lone and scared. Eventually my addiction had consumed me and I could no longer pretend like everything was okay. I tried going to therapists and dietitians however it was all too easy lie and getaway with my addiction. I eventually stopped going to school because my body was not strong enough to even get out of bed. My mother became aware that I needed more help than was being offered. within 2 days I was packed and put in a treatment center in Utah. Again I felt scared and a lone. I was angry and confused. For 5 months I worked on myself and the issues I had never learned to face. I grew a lot in treatment but as soon as I got out I started reverting back to old habits. My aunt was living close by and had told me she had been going to The Addiction Recovery Program that the church provides. Needless to say I started to attend. I can honestly say I have never in my life felt the way I have while attending ARP. In that program I learned how to apply the atonement in my life. I learned repentance is for everyone and our Savior lives. I know with all my heart the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church. I know The Book of Mormon is true. I have been in darkness and I know the only way to true happiness is through the Christ. The gospel of Jesus Christ offers hope, This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church and community I try to do my part. Right now I am a missionary for the church. For the longest time I felt like I needed to do more. Through the course of some time I realized our Heavenly Father only asks us to do our best. I live my faith by looking for opportunities to serve, every amount of effort is noticed by our Heavenly Father
