Hi I'm Neena

I love the outdoors and trying new things. I have a large family of 16. There is always something going on :)

About Me

I love doing activities with my family. Because my siblings and I don't like planning, these activities often turn out to be spontaneous and random. Once, we floated down a river on pool tubes with hot pepper popsicles we had bought at a Mexican store. Have you ever had a spicy popsicle? they are very interesting :) Anyway, I like to run, bike, hike, rock climb, swim and have fun:) I finished two years of college and loved it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a big family person. I know that God has made it possible for me to be with my family forever. I have several sisters and a brother who are adopted. With each sibling, my family and I were able to go to the temple to get sealed for eternity. Which means that we will be a family forever. I was born into a LDS family, but I also had be converted. I was converted when I began doing the things that I had been taught. I realized that if I wanted a testimony about fasting, for example, then I needed to fast. When I read the scriptures, I began to love them and know that they are really true. I see so many blessings from doing these simple things. Also, when I was young, I heard that God loved everyone. I wanted to know if He loved and knew me personally. How could God love me along with billions of others? I decided to pray and ask God. I prayed every night for a long time and felt like I had never gotten an answer. I was getting discouraged. Finally, one night I prayed and suddenly I could clearly see all the people who had said or showed their love to me over the time that I prayed for that answer. I felt overcome with love, and a powerful thought came to me. Heavenly father told me that He loved me and had answered my prayer through others. I am a Mormon because I know that God can answer my prayers and bless me with an eternal family. I am a Mormon because I want to have God in my life.

How I live my faith

I try to serve people. Today, I got a check at work and made sure that I saved 10% of that money for tithing. It is awesome to serve the community through these simple donations. Also, in my singles ward, I was the ward historian. I had to record the activities, marriages, missions and events of the ward. At first, I was not very excited about this calling. I am not a big history/record person, but I loved it! I learned so much from it, and I got to know so many people. Haha It is awesome how God knows you better than you know yourself. :)
