Hi I'm Mari Grace

I am from the Philippines and works in Yokohama Japan as an Application Engineer .... I`m a Mormon :)

About Me

I love music and art. I used to draw everyday when I was young but I took a different career. I also love my work now but not as much as I love art. And I dream of becoming a mother someday :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am because I know there is something more than just surviving daily in our earthly life or just be gone when we die. I believed I came from somewhere and would be somewhere when I die and so I thought I had to know. Then it makes sense that we came from someone with the same image as we are now. And I thought if I would be a mother my self and had to go away for work I would want someone I trust to look over my kids. I thought that`s how God will be with us. Now I already know He authorized people to take care of us His sons and daughters. Not just anyone who decides they like to do it but those whom He trust to look over us while He`s away. I also knew there are reasons on every questions I had. So I had to ask... It makes sense to ask when you believe in revelations to be essential in your days. The moment those questions ran out, I knew that this is His Church He entrusted us with. I know until now. And I continuously learn in faith and in God`s wisdom in me. And I am grateful more than anything!

How I live my faith

I know God lives and He knows me. So everyday I know I can talk to Him. I listen to His music as frequent as I desire to feel the spirit. I try to understand people as I understand God loves them too. So when I have a calling I do them. I love my experience as a youth leader. The youth are fun to be with, simple and lovable. I love my Family and I show them. And when making mistakes I try to remember how happy He would be to welcome me back with Jesus Christ`s atonement. I try to read the scriptures to get to know Him better.. and I am always looking forward to having my own family and be able to guide them with God`s wisdom.
