Hi I'm Armie

I'm a Filipina and I love serving in Utah Salt Lake City Temple Square Mission. Mabuhay! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm always interested in learning new things because I can see beauty in almost everything! I've been learning to play musical instruments such as the piano and the violin. I also enjoy doing arts and crafts like drawing, scrap-booking, designing, Photoshop, photography. Cooking is also on my top list because I want to be a good cook just like my parents and I have a sweet tooth! I am also an adventurous person who loves to travel to different places and see the world! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon and I am a Mormon because I have seen, heard, experienced and experiencing the truthfulness of the Gospel in my life. I greatly testify that obedience to the commandments of God and being true to the covenants lead to the right path and blessings from above. Experience is the best teacher to know if the church is true!

How I live my faith

I always try to live what I believe in and that means abiding by the laws, principles and standards that I grew up with as a Latter-day Saint. I realized that it is not that easy but I know it is true and that it is possible, that is why I'm always trying my best to live up to what the Lord wants me to be. I enjoy going to church every Sunday with my family and we have family home evening every once a week. This helps our family stay together. I also strive to find time to read the scriptures everyday because it helps me to be reminded that I am a child of God and there is so much more in knowing that! :)

Are Mormons Christians?

Armie
YES! We are definitely Christians! We belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as Mormons (because of the Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ that supports the Bible). Our beliefs and practices are centered in the teachings of Jesus Christ. We believe in the godhead: God the Eternal Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Armie
The Book of Mormon is an ancient record from the Ancient Americas, that was written on gold plates by the ancient prophets and was hidden and protected by the Lord through the prophet Mormon to be revealed again at a time to restore the church that Jesus Christ established when he was here on the earth. It is another testament of Jesus Christ that was written by ancient prophets who believed in the coming of Christ and who believed in Him. The Book of Mormon is comparable to the Bible and they support each other. I truly know that the Book of Mormon are words of Christ through the prophets who wrote it. I have felt and continuously experiencing the changes it brings into my life! Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

Armie
I believe that the priesthood is the sacred power of God that is passed along to men who are found worthy to exercise it. Having the priesthood is a blessing for the family, the church, the sick, and for all the people who might seek for it. The power of the priesthood is inseparable from the powers of heaven and it only works through the spirit of humility, service and love. Show more Show less
