Hi I'm Xochilt

Hey! My name is Xochilt, which is phonetically pronounced So-chilt. I am a pianist from North Carolina.

About Me

I am a 21 year old from North Carolina. I love to play the piano, listen to music, hot weather, martial arts, exploring different places, soccer, long naps, and Star wars! I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission in the California Redlands Mission, where I will serve the people of the area and the Lord for 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that this gospel is true. It feels right, and there are times when I can feel the spirit strongly. I pray and I know that my heavenly father is listening because I get this warm fuzzy feeling inside when I pray, I know that he cares about all of us, and that he wants all of us to return home to him. I prayed to God asking him if Joseph Smith truly was a prophet and if he had really seen God and Jesus Christ, I got a powerful answer and I knew that it really was true. I promised myself that I would do the best I could so that I could return home to our Heavenly Father. Its really

How I live my faith

I really try to keep close to the Saviour as close as I can. There are many temptations in todays society, especially for a 21 year old, but as I strive to live worthily and keep God’s commandments I know I am protected from the things that would harm me and I am happier because of that. Going to church and partaking of sacred ordinances keeps me close God. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission in California.

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

When Jesus Christ lived on the earth, He organized His Church so that all people could receive His gospel and return one day to live with God, our Heavenly Father. After Jesus Christ died, was resurrected and ascended to heaven, His Apostles continued to receive revelation from Him through the Holy Ghost on how to direct the work of His Church. However, after they were killed, members changed the teachings of the Church that He had established. While many good people and some truth remained, this Apostasy, or general falling away from the truth, brought about the withdrawal of the Church from the earth (2 Thessalonians 2:1-3; Acts 20:29-30). The Apostle Peter prophesied that Jesus would restore His Church before His Second Coming (Acts 3:19-21). Jesus Christ began to restore His Church in its fulness to the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith in 1820. It has grown to become a worldwide Church with over 13 million members. It has the same teachings and basic organization as the Church established by Jesus in New Testament times. Show more Show less
