Hi I'm Fernanda

I'm Brazilian, I'm a wife, I'm a interior designer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived in Brazil all my life, but since college I moved to United States to gain higher education and life experiences. Now I am a interior designer and I love what I do. I am passionate about architecture, art, traveling, reading, dancing, and recently, fitness. I love my family, specially my husband, there is nothing better than being married to your best friend for time and all eternity. But most importantly, I love the gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of the truthfulness of this church. I was only 14 when I decided to pray and ask God if this was the right path for me. Up to this point I just had followed my parents example and teachings and I lived under their light, but it was time for me to find out on my own. That afternoon I went to my room and read the a chapter of Book of Mormon (I had read the Book of Mormon before, but I had never asked), and then read Moroni's challenge (Moroni 10:4) and got down on my knees and prayed. I had never felt that close to God before that moment, it was a feeling that no words can explain, but of one thing I was certain, that that feeling was true and real and I could feel in my heart that the Book of Mormon was true. I could feel Jesus Christ's and Heavenly Father's love for me and I felt that They are real and they live. This is why I am a Mormon, because what I felt that day changed my life and I know that this is the right path for me and my family to return to live with Heavenly Father again. From that point on I have strived to follow Jesus Christ every day of my life in the best way I can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one step at a time. I try every day to be a better person than I was yesterday. I strive to pray meaningfully to Heavenly Father, to read the scriptures, to serve, and to be a good example to all around me every day. Serving others is a big part of my worship to God. I teach some of the kids at church every sunday, I just love being their teacher! It's amazing to me how sweet their spirits are, and every time I am teaching I can feel The Savior's love for them. To me, serving is truly a blessing and I do it gladly because I know that's what Heavenly Father would want me to do.
