Hi I'm Selika

I'm Italian. I love popcorn. I love asking random questions. I serve in Temple Square!!

About Me

My name is Selika..not really an Italian name, I know, but my mom always liked to be..emh..different. That really tested my patience since I was very little, because no one could ever understand my name.. I believe that eating popcorn can solve every problem! My really favorite food is Spaghetti and seafood though! I love people..especially the random ones! I believe that we can do anything, with faith, practice and patience...LOT OF PATIENCE! I love dancing, reading, dreaming..singing (in the shower, though..or in the car by myself, so I don't harm anyone..).. I believe that telling the truth and being ourselves is always the best way to deal with things and having fun! I know I sound kind of a weird person, in this description..I will think about making it better another day.. (Yes..one of my biggest weaknesses is procrastination..I know..I'm still working on that..)

Why I am a Mormon

Most of the times I've been the only member in the neighborhood..in the school..in the town!!!! So most of my friends are not members of the Church, since in Italy there are not so so SO many members of the Church, yet. It was not always the most popular decision, being a Mormon.. Though, I've been blessed with friends that are always so supportive with me, and with the way I choose to live. They always accepted me, and my choices to live my faith in daily life. I really know that when we are ourselves, and we are not ashamed to live what we believe, we can be happy, no matter the environment in which we live. One of my favorite quote is "When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives" (Pres. Benson) And I bear my testimony that it's true. Sometimes it's not easy, convenient, or evident..but as we put our trust in Heavenly Father (and we develop patience!), He will make things work.=)

How I live my faith

Well, right now I'm living my faith by serving as a full-time missionary!! I'm in Temple Square..and everyday I have the chance to meet so many people from all over the world!! It's such a great experience sharing with people my experience and the difference that the Gospel made, (and makes) in my life.. I don't know if I can explain myself properly.. It's like..mmm..when you find a restaurant with the best Pizza you've ever eaten!!!!!!! The first thing you do is to call all your friends and family and tell them to try it!!!!!! You just can't keep it for yourself!!!!!! (Yes, food is always my favorite way to explain things..)
