Hi I'm Ana Henriques

I grew up in Brazil, I love history, horses and MMA.. I'm a mormon

About Me

Hmm.. I'm either the weirdest person or the most bubbly person someone can ever meet. I actually have mastered a way to smile while speaking. I was born and raised in Southern Brazil, and 2 years ago I moved to the prettiest state in the United States, Tennessee. One of the things I love, is to travel! Just last summer I had one of my dreams come true!!! My step-dad got a job in the Middle East, and I was able to live with them there for a little while, I loved it there! I love experimenting different cultures! I also love Horses, my cute little dog, UFC, drawing, traveling, swimming, dancing, making friends, going to museums, hiking..

Why I am a Mormon

My faith is who I'm, is part of me. I haven't always made the wisest choices, but because I'm a Mormon, I have found a way of learning even from those choices. I'm a Mormon because it has given me something I have never found anywhere else, which is Peace! I know, more than anything else, that Jesus Christ lives, and I know for myself that this is His church! I have changed forever because of this knowledge! I can never be the same again, I can't dare to be the same. I'm a new person, and I'm a living witness of the Power of Jesus Christ and his gospel, and of its purifying power. Knowing why I'm here on this Earth, has helped me to achieve and overcome things that otherwise would have been impossible. I love my life, and the reason why, is because of the personal relationship I have with the Savior. I know this all is true, I have seen the truthfulness of it through out my life. Life is just so beautiful when you look at it, no matter how hard it may be at times, life is just priceless!! It fascinates me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it! I share it online, I share it with everyone I speak with. I also live my faith by loving others and putting myself in their shoes, no matter who they are or where they are at in their lives, and what they have done! I know that the forgiveness that Christ has to offer is very real, I know it because I experienced it! Life is hard enough without judgmental people, we need more people willing to help others to desire to change and feel something! We need people that live their faith by loving no matter what, by standing up even when not popular! Bottom line, I try to show my faith by daily choosing to be like Jesus Christ rather than a Christian only, which I'm not perfect at, that's why is a daily choice but that's my deepest desire! I try to show my faith by actions rather than words only!
