Hi I'm Maria Alejandra Baquero

I grew up in Bogota. I've been singing since I was 6 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love singing, I have been singing since I was 6 years old. I'm currently writing a blog about my life as a member of the church.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the true church of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was the prophet chosen by God to open this dispensation and restore his church, and because he gave up his life, I know that all this is true. I know that the Book of Mormon as well as the Bible and Doctrine and Covenants are true, and contain revelation from God. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet chosen by God, I know he receives direct revelation from our Heavenly Father and I feel his love whenever he addresses us. And above all, I know that my heavenly Father loves me just like Jesus Christ. I know that he lives and that by his grace we can repent and be perfect in Him.

How I live my faith

I am currently the music director of my ward. I love singing hymns, they make me feel the spirit.
