About Me

I'm 20 years old, I'm a college student i have been living in Houston most of my life. My parents are from Mexico and i actually lived in Mexico a little while and came back to Houston when i was 6. i love Houston it is awesome, even though it is really hot. I like working out a lot i like to go to the gym, play soccer and watch tons of it. I have 2 brothers and one sister,my family is everything to me. there always there for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon , at first it was because my parents taught me and showed me since very young that this was our church. I never questioned or asked just did what i was told. I believed i had a true understanding and i was here on my own. I was not, i was there becayse thats what my parents wanted. I stopped going to church when i was 17 and worked every sunday so i had an excuse to not go. I never felt so alone and lost. I began to question and find out if this was true for me and not because my parents said so. I prayed and meditated to find a answer. Long story short i was present one night as the missionaries taught the first lesson to two men they had just met. When the lesson was coming to and end they asked them to pray and see if what they had been taught was true. The missionaries read a scripture and prayed with them. In the prayer i felt a chill on my skin and then this peace and feeling that they were true. One of the men said to the missionary that he had felt goosebumps in the prayer and this feeling of peace. I was shocked that he had felt what i had like he was reading my mind. It was as if the lesson and everything was directed at me. I was born in the church but my converstion has just started and continues everyday

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to serve the Lord. I am the leader of the young adults in my church and i plan activities that help us be better and have fun.
