Hi I'm Sinthia

I was born and raised in Mexico. I moved to the United States when I was 18 in order to go to college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated from college with a BA in English. Right now I'm in the scary process of finding a job. I love playing tennis, listening to music, trying new things, and reading books. I also love watching all types of movies, especially old ones.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Catholic family, however, when I was 8 years old my mom found out about the LDS church, and we started to attend services on Sundays. I was baptized when I was 10; although I really wanted to be baptized, I did not understand a lot about the doctrine of the LDS church.I only knew it felt right. However, as I grew up and read the scriptures I came to a better understanding of the basic principles, and I also built my own testimony of the church. When I was a teenager I attended seminary classes, which are scripture study courses for LDS teenagers. There I learned more about Jesus Christ, His atonement, about how Joseph Smith received inspiration from God to start the LDS church. Learning about all this helped me build a strong testimony, and now I feel very firm about my beliefs. Although there are still a lot of things I need to work on, I feel happy living the gospel, and it fills me with hope knowing that God loves me, and that as long as I give my best the atonement of Jesus Christ will provide the rest. Being a Mormon has also given me a sense of purpose, and a better understanding of why I am here, and what I need to do go back to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church on Sundays, reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon, and by attending social activities organized by my ward. I like going to these activities because we have a lot of fun in a healthy way.
