Hi I'm Adriana Raquel Funes

I was born in El Salvador and I live in Canada. I play guitar, soccer and volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a college student. I play guitar and I love to write songs. I have an older brother, older sister, brother-in-law, and two nephews.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the lifestyle that comes with the religion is nothing to be ashamed of. By following the teachings of the gospel, I don't have to worry about embarrassing myself, my family or my friends. Over the years, I have learned that the standards that we hold as Mormons are not restrictions, but ways to help us be the best person we can be. I'm a Mormon because I love the church. I'm a Mormon because I have made mistakes in the past and I'm working at being a better person.

How I live my faith

I believe in being the same person wherever I go. My friends from school and my friends from church will all know me as the same person. In the church, I love to help out however I can.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Like any other lifestyle, it's tough. It isn't easy following everything - there is so much to learn, but the blessings are so great. The church isn't here for perfect people, and that's what makes it easier to be a Mormon. As Mormons, we try to help others out, forget about ourselves and dedicate our time with service to others. Growing up, I kind of hated the concept, but as I've gotten older, I've noticed that it helped me forget my troubles and focus on others. Show more Show less
