Hi I'm Miranda

I'm from south Texas. I'm serving in the San Fernando, California Mission. And I'm Mormon.

About Me

About me? Hmm.. Well let's start with the basics. I am from McAllen, Texas, and have 3 brothers, along with 3 nephews! I go to Brigham Young University at the moment, but will be putting my studies on pause because I will be serving a mission! I have a passion for dancing, and being around the people I love. I'm not very shy, and I love talking to new and different people. The sunlight and beach is where it's at! I love the summer and the warm nights. Well guys...that's all I got!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a memeber for 3 years, and I have felt how my life has changed ever since I was baptized. I decided to joing the Mormon church because I prayed, and read The Book of Mormon, and asked God if this was the Christ's church. I didn't want it to be, but I felt such a warm and comforting feeling when I reached out to find out if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was ture. I couldn't deny the feeling, and I couldn't deny God. I got baptized, and little by little began to see how my life was changing...for the better. There was a point in my life where I didn't know if God exisited. Now, because of this church, I am 100% sure that God and Jesus Christ are real, and they live, and they want nothing more than for us to be happy. We just need to take that step, and follow Them.

How I live my faith

I absolutely love going out and helping other people. Making the effort to be a little more selfless has made me feel the love of Christ so strongly. What also helps me feel this incredible love is reading the scriptures daily. Scripture reading is so important and is a way we find out what God wants from us, how we receive answers, and how we grow. Also, prayer. Prayer is so essential to my life. It's the way I communicate with God and one of the many important ways I can build my relationship with Him and Jesus Christ.
