Hi I'm Roxie Limon!

I like Harry Potter and chocolate chips. I'm a convert, and a missionary serving in Texas Fort Worth. & I am a Mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised as a Marine Corps brat. We traveled the world growing up and never stayed in the same place for more than three years. & Even though I wasn't born there, those Colorado Mountains stole my heart, and I claim Colorado Springs as my home! I was brought up Catholic and went to Mass every Sunday with my family. Throughout high school I rebelled against everything my family had taught me. Things escalated when I was in college and experienced some very difficult times. I was more depressed than I ever had been and turned to all the wrong solutions.. Little did I know, eternal happiness was right around the corner... Literally! Right across from my dorm room at college was a church building for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. & I don't believe in coincidences! After over a year of self-investigating I was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on June 16th 2013. My baptism directly followed the most difficult and trying year of my life - it is proof to me that Heavenly Father never leaves us alone. He's always taking care of us, even if we can't see it at the time! Since my baptism I have turned my life around and am now on the path to becoming the person Heavenly Father has always wanted me to be! I'm even serving a mission in Fort Worth Texas, Spanish speaking! (:

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because life is too difficult without the help of God. I was brought up believing in God the Father, and Jesus Christ - but I never had a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father. My family went through some trials when I was 14 and my life changed dramatically. I rebelled against my family. I got into the party scene and my life seemed to revolve around drugs and alcohol. Things progressed when I left for college. I felt lost, scared, and forgotten. I felt as though I had no one to turn to. I tried to drown out my pains in all the substances I was putting into my body. I began to fall further than I ever had before. I needed help. Throughout all of my struggles one person stuck beside me - he knew what I was going though and shared his Faith with me. He shared with me The Book of Mormon and invited me to his Church. I thought he was crazy! But he was also persistent, so eventually I said yes and went to church with him. I didn't know it at the time, but my life changed the second I walked through the chapel doors. Over that next year I did a lot of my own "investigating" of the LDS Church but I didn't know what I was looking for. On June 1st 2013 I met with the Mormon Missionaries for the first time. The Missionaries asked me if I knew that God loved me. That's when I realized I had never felt His love before.. but I longed for the feeling they talked about! They shared with me the story of Joseph Smith and how The Book of Mormon not only is another Testament of Jesus Christ, but proof of our Heavenly Father's love! I was already in tears when they invited me to be baptized - this was what I had been searching for! I said yes and was baptized on June 16th 2013! I haven't touched drugs or alcohol since. Since then the journey hasn't been easy. Life will always be difficult! But I know that my Heavenly Father loves me. & Now I am a Sister Missionary sharing the same message that changed my life. I couldn't be happier! (:

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to give my all to my Father in Heaven! After my baptism I went through a time where I had no where to live. I was struggling financially and my job as a waitress wasn't bringing in as much money as I needed to get an apartment. I was forced to spend a few weeks living out of my car. But I knew that God was there for me. I knew that He loved me, and I know that He wasn't going to leave me alone. A few days later I received a call from the Missionaries - they had found me a place to live! I lived with a Member family until I had enough money saved up to move to Utah and get an apartment. The trial of living in my car so soon after my baptism is something that I will never forget. But the blessings that I received shortly thereafter make it all worth it. My faith in my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ grew about a hundred times that day! And I know that it is only because of that faith that I have been able to make it to this point in my life.
