Hi I'm Mercedes

I am a returned missionary. I'm an aunt. I like happiness. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am going to school as a child psychology major. I love music and I LOVE to laugh. :) Peanut butter makes me happy. Being an aunt is one of the best things in the world. Family and friends are everything to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in this religion, but like all of us, I had to come to a knowledge of the truth for myself. This point came when I was a Senior in high school. My parents got divorced, and my whole world crashed, leaving me very alone. For a while I was mad at God and blamed him for my family falling apart. When I didn't think I could go any lower, I finally found myself on my knees looking for answers, truth and love. As I read the scriptures, I found my answers,and I felt loved and comforted in my trials. I now have an unbreakable testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. He suffered for my weaknesses and my sadness. He understands me more than anyone and has truly become my best friend. As I have served my mission, this testimony has continued to grow, and I have come to know my Savior in more ways than I knew possible. By living this religion, I have a hope and happiness that nothing else can give me.

How I live my faith

I have recently returned from serving a mission. It was the greatest experience of my life thus far. It's brought me more happiness than I ever knew I could have.I love being able to share with others who Jesus Christ is and the incredible role He plays in each of our lives.
