Hi I'm Stephanie

I was raised in Utah to Colombian parents. I love dancing, cooking, and exploring. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I've lead a pretty wanderlust life thus far. I love meeting new people, learning new things, and exploring in general.

Why I am a Mormon

I served an LDS mission in Panama which meant working 10-12 hours day everyday for 18 months for women and 24 months for men. Missionaries teach the basic principles of the church. Missionaries talk to EVERYONE!!! I love meeting new people and I also love food. Many times we would use analogies or examples to teach principles of the church. In other words, we related the unknown to the known. Many times people graciously invited us into their homes to teach them more about the LDS Church. Near the beginning of our acquaintance I would usually ask the following: What is your favorite food? To which 99.9 % of the time a Panamanian would answer.... Rice!!!! Or...Rice and Chicken. Or Rice and Meat. To which I would respond.... If I bring you an elegant plate of rice and chicken. It smells good. It looks good... Yet how would you know if it tastes good? And the Panaminian would invariably reply! Taste It! or Eat it! That is my invitation to anyone reading this or any other profile on Mormon.Org The way to know, learn, understand something is to go to the source! And the only way to know if it works is to TRY IT!!! Or TASTE IT!!!! I am a Mormon because by living its teachings, I am happy. It works for me and that's the only reason I am taking the time to write on this site! I know God and Jesus Christ know and love each one of us more than you or I can imagine. I promise if you pray and ask God with real intent if this is His True Church he will make it known unto you! You are exceptional and awesome. Just try it out. You have nothing to lose!

How I live my faith

I am a leader for a youth group in my church. I love the energy and enthusiasm of the teenagers. I also love helping in small ways in my home, with friends, and in my community. Nothing fancy for now. Just day-to-day things. Holding a door open, helping my neighbor with turtle-sitting, or smiling at a stranger. The small things make a big difference!
