Hi I'm Lillian Garcia

I am preparing to serve as a full-time missionary in the Mexico, Puebla South Mission! The gospel makes me so happy.

About Me

I love my family more than anything. My mother comes from a family of 12 siblings, so it is always so fun to be with them. I am so blessed to be apart of such a large family, that is so united. I am fascinated by the beautiful nature that the Lord has given us on earth. I love reading inspirational literature, writing, and meeting people of different cultures! I love to smile and make others feel happy. I am also the first woman to serve a mission in my family, and i couldn't be happier to set an example and give up a short moment of my life to bless the lives of others waiting to hear about the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful to have been blessed with the Gospel in my life. The happiness that i have gained by knowing that there is a Father in Heaven who knows my heart, knows my deep desires, and is always there to love me, is the greatest knowledge i have ever received. It brings me so happiness to know that there is a way to be with my family forever, and as i choose to live the commandments, I will receive that promise. Although, I had been raised in the church my entire life, it wasn't until I reached college that I began to think more about the plan that Heavenly Father had for me. I earnestly prayed, fasted, and read my scriptures to know for myself that this Church was the only true church. I had made many mistakes as a teenager, but it wasn't until i chose to become closer to the Savior and His Atonement, that i had a change of heart. I now knew that through his grace I could repent of my sins, and become clean and live the rest of my life as a faithful servant of the Lord. From that time on, my testimony has now become my own, and I can say that this is the only true church on the earth today. I know the world will not bring me happiness, but through Christ and his everlasting love, I can be filled with Light and the desire to do good in my life. That is why i continue to follow Him. I have faith in Him and His plan for me, and even though i do not know what my future may bring, I have peace that the Lord will sustain to do all that I will be required to do. At the end of a long life, I want to return back to his presence and know that i did my best. I want to know that i loved and served others as Christ would. We are on this journey together, to help one another become more like our Savior,and to share the Gospel with those not yet received it. The Lord needs us to be missionaries in this world and to radiate the Light of Christ to all of our brothers and sisters.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve as a full-time missionary in the Mexico South Puebla Mission. My greatest example is my Savior who had all the attributes that we need to return back to him. Each day I wake up with the thought of how I can represent the Lord and Savior in my life and especially to those around me. By having clean thoughts and actions, I feel a sweet feeling and have a greater desire to be even better. I start each day with scripture study and set goals that i want to accomplish that day, that will help me become more like Christ. One of my favorite things to do is listen to church music, that helps me to stay in tune to the Spirit in a special way. I have been able to serve as a teacher for the children in the ward, and I truly enjoyed sharing the gospel with them and gained a greater love for our Heavenly Father's little children.
