Hi I'm Belyruth

I was born in Peru, raised in New Jersey and living in Utah. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am 23 years old and I LOVE MUSIC! I am majoring in Psychology at Utah Valley University. I have been LDS my whole life and I served a full time mission in Houston, Texas. I love animals, I love kids and I love finding opportunities to help others. I was born in Peru, but my family moved to New Jersey, USA, when I was little. Being raised in New Jersey gave me the opportunity to meet people from many different countries and I have learned to love all cultures! People are so cool! My life is so not perfect yet I am so grateful to God and my Savior for the life that I have! God is so good!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my whole life. I love this church. But like any other person I have asked myself if this is the right church, and every time my heavenly father has reassured me that this is where i need to be, this is where i belong. Throughout my life I have made many mistakes but these mistakes have only strengthen my testimony. I am a daughter of god and i know that he loves me very much because I have felt his love, I have felt his love every time I would kneel on the floor and pray. He has blessed me and my family so much, words cannot express how grateful I am to be a part of His church. I know this is the only true church on Earth. I know that Joseph Smith saw God and his beloved son. I know God chose Joseph Smith to restored his church on Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, I know that if you read it and pray to God with all your faith, you will receive the same answer I have received. I also know that the Bible is the word of God. I know that families can be together forever. I know that God loves us so much that he sent his only begotten son to die for us and to redeem us from our sins. I know that Jesus Christ lived, suffered and died for us; so that we may go back one day to live with our Heavenly Father if we are obedient and endure to the end. I know that we have come to Earth to be tested, and that there will be some extremely hard tests but I also know that our Heavenly Father is with us every step of the way. Once again, I know that this church is true, I know that its His church, I know it with all my heart; and this is why I have decided to serve a mission. Because I want people to know what I know, I want them to receive the many blessings that I have received, I want them to have the opportunity to be together with their families for all eternity. I leave these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

My faith is a very big part of my life. I live my faith by always striving to follow Christ's example, in thoughts, words and actions. I am not perfect, but every day I try to be better. I strive to live my faith by attending Church every Sunday, readings my scriptures and praying.
