About Me

Hello there! I enjoy meeting new people. Love to laugh and act silly sometimes. Love the 1920s-1960s Era because of the different lifestyle, fashion, the classic cars! Enjoy driving my car. Love to travel. Enjoy dancing to anything and learning new cultures. Respect everybody and their opinions. Enjoy the feeling of helping others and making them smile. Love my family, they have been great example in life. Currently attending college to get my degree on Fire Technology and soon to become a firefighter. Everyday becoming stronger and closer to my Heavenly Father, and hoping one day i can get sealed with that special someone....

Why I am a Mormon

(Sigh)...when I look back in time, i realize and value every single thing and moment that has happened to me. It's been a tough road. But I knew that everything had a purpose, which at that moment i just couldn't comprehend why negative things were happening to me. Many times i thought my life was over...little by little my faith grew stronger, and started asking Heavenly Father for answers, for hope, for forgiveness and for humbleness. But after all the ups and downs, i know that i was destined to find His Church and His Divine Gospel. In November of 2009, i received my testimony and called the missionaries that i wanted to get baptized. The most amazing feeling ever to know that i have the gospel in my life and that finally I'm on the correct path. And now, little by little, missionaries have been talking to the rest of my family and not too long ago, my mom decided to take the big step! It's an amazing feeling to feel the Love of God in your Heart and Soul. I know the Book of Mormon is the Word of God as well and is a guidance in our lives. Now I know that my life has a purpose here on Earth and that one day my love ones and I will be living up there with our Heavenly Father....

How I live my faith

Finally I have a calling! :) I'm serving as a teacher to the young men. I rejoiced when i got my calling because working with teenagers is so fun and I know I have a great responsibility to teach them the best way possible on how to be an excellent representative of Jesus Christ and His Church. I enjoy listening to their testimonies and opinions because i learn a lot from them too...When I'm outside of Church, I always try my best to be a good example to others. I always carry the scripture Galatians 2:20 in my mind and heart, helps me become more like my Master and Savior Jesus Christ..
