About Me

I'm a student. I love reading and bike.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized in the church on August 2011. I grow-up in a Jewish/Christian home. I love my family, I felt like something was missing. I went on this journey to find out what was the truth. My friend who was on his mission at the time, asked me to talk with the local missionaries. I am so grateful I did. My life has been forever changed. The road has been bumpy and difficult. I lost a few friends and family members along the way. I gained a church family tho. I found hope, healing, peace and comfort that I thought I long forever. I know the that Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints is true. I know the we have a Heavenly Father who created us all and wants us to return to Him again. He let his only begotten son Jesus Christ come down to earth to wipe my sins away. He died on the cross for me and you . He gave us the gave the gift of the Atonement. I know that the Holy Ghost will guide us through trials of life. I know the Joseph Smith is the prophet who restored the gospel. I know the the Book of Mormon goes right along with the Bible.

How I live my faith

Joining the church isn't always that simple. What keep me going was having a calling and mostly Visiting teaching. I was really timid when I joined and still am in a lot of ways/. I didn't like to talk to anyone. When I got my visiting teaching list, I was so nervous and excited to be teaching those girls I got! It made me get out of myself and acted on faith. Visiting teaching made me feel like I was helping someone.
