Hi I'm Massiel

I grew up in the Dominican Republic. I live in NY. I am a student. And, yes I am a Mormon and I love it!!!

About Me

I love to dance. I grew up on family parties. We don't meet as often after moving to NY though. We still get together for holydays. It is always a party when we do. I really wish I am able to descrive myself in a "to the point " way. So I'll tell you about my life right now. I am going to school in the West. I got my Associates in Liberal Arts about 2 years ago. I have changed my major so many times after I decided to get my bachellors. I think there are too many great careers to be involved with!!! I have to be honest, I am not so thrilled about school. I have to get myself to like school sometimes. I am very talkative. I usually express my emotions and expect others to do the same. I love sharing the things I learn at school, church, media, work, friends, and meetings. I love to be on the go. The more I have to do the more I accomplish. There are so many activities that I love to do in my free time. It all depends on the weather and the location. Mostly I love picnics, walks, fashion, concerts, food, running, spinning, Musiums, beauty and etc. My favorite thing to do is to meet people and to eat food from all over the world. I love having fun. My frieds would descrive me as the life of the party. They know who to call when it comes to having fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have studied, poundered and prayed about whether or not the Book of Mormon is true and good for me. Every time I read the Book of Mormon I feel inspired, and enlightened. I feel that all the answers to the purpose of life and to our trials are found there. I think most people make wrong choices because of ignorance and not commitment to God. Now I feel that I know God's commadments and it is up to me wether or not to follow them. Doing what the scriptures say give me a sense of peace, hope and healing. I feel following God's commadments is similar to following our country rules. If I obey them, I will am free from harm and bad consecuenses, but if I disobey I will encounter despair. I love that Heavenly Father (God) is loving, He loves us just as we are, obeying or not. He does get sad when we choose not to listen to him. He shows us that he forgives us as long as we are willing to leave aside the things that don't harmonize with His commadments. As we strive to learn from Him we become more and more happier. He teaches us step by step. I have learned that we can't know everything. But when one has real intent one finds answers.

How I live my faith

It is hard to define how one lives his/her faith. I think I live my faith when I decide to choose to do the right things. I know when I feel good about something I have chossen to live my faith.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another book that shows God's love for his children. It was writen during the same time the Bible was written, by true prophets in the Americas. It gives hope and enlightens all who read it with true and good intent. Show more Show less
