Hi I'm Ana Martins

I am a 16 year old who loves the gospel and everything that comes with it!

About Me

I am a 16 year old Portuguese girl who lives in England! 'Nothing bad ever happens' is one of the best things I've heard in my life and helps you look at things in a whole different way. Making other people feel good or making them feel happy is one of the best feelings and something I aim to do every day! Church, family and friends are the most important things in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the gospel and I am so grateful for that. I have been a mormon all my life and it has brought so many blessings into my life. It has brought many opportunities in my life and I can't even imagine not being a mormon! Looking at the world around me, I realise that the things that bring greatest happiness all relate back to being a mormon! I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father loves me and I know that Jesus Christ died for me and a big way of thanking him for that is by being a mormon! I have a testimony of the power of the priesthood and I am grateful to have it in my life, I am so grateful for the sacrament and the covenants we renew when we partake of it! I love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Being a member of the church is a big part of my life. Everything I do is church related and i automatically think to myself, how will this improve my church life. I have a strong testimony about the Book of Mormon and the power of scripture study. As well as this, I have a strong testimony about prayer and how important it is to have in my life. Through prayer we aren't just able to get answers but we are able to build a greater relationship with out Heavenly Father who loves us. Being a teenager I am always looking for ways to stay strong in the gospel and the church provides many ways for this to be fulfilled. I am grateful for programmes such as EFY/FSY, it provides spiritual recharging which we can never get enough of! EFY/FSY provides such great opportunities, not only to become more in tune with the spirit but to get to know more people who share the same beliefs as you and that will help you become better.
