Hi I'm Judith

I am from California. I love to travel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Judith and I live in sunny sunshine California. I love liking here, there is so much to do and see. Since the beach is not too far away I love going to it. Just spending time admiring the waves is so soothing to me. I am 26 years old and have been married for a little over a year. I enjoy the outdoors, running, walking, afternoons at a park. Travel is a big thing for me. Even if it is just local within the state. It is so exciting to me to see new places and meet new people.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I am a Mormon is because I can feel in my heart that this is the church of Jesus Christ. When I was 10 and my family met the church I did not know much about God or his Gospel. In fact everything that had to do with religion scared me. However, when we met the Sister missionaries at my aunts house one afternoon and they started teaching my mom and me, I was able to feel this warm feeling inside of me. I later grew to know that what I had felt that day was the Spirit of God, His love. The image of the Sister missionaries stayed in my mind throughout my youth years. As my testimony grew my desire to serve as a missionary of the church grew also. At the age of 21 I was able to depart as a missionary to Brazil. There I came to know what the gospel was and how it can change peoples lives. I came to know for myself that the Book of Mormon was true. That we have a prophet here on earth today, Thomas S. Monson. That God loves us and that we are his children, if only we would open our hearts and pray to Him, He will testify in our hearts that He is real. I know that through service we are able to feel God's love for us. We are able to become more Christ like. I will never forget those Sister missionaries that help me feel the love that God has for me.

How I live my faith

I love being a Mormon and serving in the church. I have been a member since I was 10 years old, since then I knew that one day I wanted to serve as a missionary of the church. From 2008-2010 I was able to serve as a missionary in Rio de Janeiro Brazil. It was by far one of the best experiences in my life. Being able to learn a new language a new culture were ways that I felt the Lord showed His love for me. Sometime upon my return from Brazil I was able to meet my now husband and best friend. He is also another way I can feel the Lords love in my life. I currently am serving as the Primary President in my ward. I oversee the gospel teaching that are being given to the children in our ward from ages 1 1/2 to 11 years old. It is a great blessing to be able to help these kids grow and learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ.
