Hi I'm Sofia

I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the United States. I'm the youngest of four children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student and I really want to become a nurse because I love talking to people and helping people. I've never really had one main hobby or interest, I've tried everything from kung fu and soccer to acting and community service club. I served a mission in the Dominican Republic, Santo Domingo West Mission (June 20, 2013- December 2014). I work as a medical interpreter.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints brings joy, peace, comfort, hope, and direction to my life. It gives my life purpose and meaning, without it I would have a very hard time making decisions and deciding which path to take. I have gained a testimony on my own by getting on my knees and praying in sincerity to know if the LDS Church and the Book of Mormon are true. I received an overwhelming sense of warmth and love telling me that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father know and love me and want me to know that it is true. Since then I have been able to use prayers as a way to guide me and support me. Whenever I am faced with a decision, feel down, or need any sort of help -whether it's big or small- I know that I can turn to my beloved Heavenly Father. He will comfort me. He will guide me. He will send the help that I need because He loves me. I know this to be true because the Holy Ghost testifies to me that I am a daughter of God, of great worth, with a very special purpose in this life. I cannot express the joy this Gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday so that I can renew my covenants with my Heavenly Father and feel closer to my Savior Jesus Christ. I try to surround myself constantly with prayer, scripture study and uplifting music so that I can always feel the spirit and peace in my life.
