Hi I'm Glorianne Mae Buenaventura

Pride of the Philippines. Full-time missionary in the California Fresno Mission. I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I am a daughter of God. I am the oldest and the youngest of one child though my thousands of cousins (so it seems) make up for it. I am a Cancer Survivor. I love my family so much and I love my Savior that is why I was able to serve in a mission. I've been through hard times and happy times and I learned a lot from that experiences that strengthened my testimony and build my convection to serve Him with all my heart, might, mind and strength. I love to sing. I love to cook. I love to hang-out with my friends and do missionary work. I love to take pictures. I love being out in the sun. I love to swim in the beach. I love to laugh and make other people laugh. I can be really goofy and be in the level of hyperactive sometimes. I believe that smiles make the world go round, right? I'm beyond thankful for the beautiful life that I have been blessed with! ♥

Why I am a Mormon

My parents have been incredible examples to me of faith and church service. They gave me the foundation, but I've built my own testimony. I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon and Bible give me feelings of peace. I am a Mormon because I can feel my Heavenly Father's love for me when I pray to him. I am a Mormon because living the Gospel pushes me to be the best I can be. I am a Mormon because I know the Gospel is true.

How I live my faith

It's quite simple how I live my faith. I just try to follow the example of Jesus Christ. But of course, this is much easier said than done. I go to church every Sunday. I read my scriptures everyday. I spend time with my family and treat them with love and respect. I treat myself with love and respect. I pray several times a day to strengthen my relationship with Heavenly Father. I try to love others that may not love me back. I look for opportunities to serve those who are in need of my help. I stay away from drugs, alcohol, and other addictive substances. I live a virtuous life. I attend the temple regularly, and prepare myself to marry there someday. I am a daughter of God. I try to live my life in a way that honors that title.
