Hi I'm Jeanene

I'm Filipina. I love my family. I love exploring the beauty of nature and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Philippines and moved to California with my family when I was 14 years old. I love my family and I cannot imagine my life without any of them. I love spending time with them and with my friends. I love the beach and watching the sun set. I find joy in being outdoors and going on random adventures. I am currently serving as a full-time missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Nevada Las Vegas West Mission (Oct 2014-April 2016). I am so grateful and blessed to have been given this opportunity to serve the Lord and the people where I am assigned to go.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been blessed to have been born with great parents who knows and have a testimony of the truthfulness of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was raised upon the teachings and examples of Jesus Christ. Though I grew up and was well taught about the principles of the gospel, I had the desire to know for myself if the things that were being taught to me were true. Not that I ever doubted the things I have been taught but I wanted to have a personal testimony of it so I took the challenge of reading the Book of Mormon and after I have done so, I asked God in a sincere prayer if it was true. In Moroni 10:3-4, it says "..if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost." That day when I sincerely prayed to my Father in Heaven, I have received my answer and felt the manifestation of the Holy Ghost on the truthfulness of the gospel and of the Book of Mormon. I was filled with the Spirit and the feeling I felt that exact moment is undeniable and no words can describe it. It is nothing comparable to any feeling I have ever felt before. I have gained my personal testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the only true church of God on Earth and the fullness of the gospel is again restored on earth through a real prophet by the name of Joseph Smith who saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and was an instrument to translate the Book of Mormon for everyone's benefit today. I am a Mormon because I know the truthfulness of the gospel is found in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can and as much as I can to do what Jesus Christ would do if He was here on the Earth today. He is the perfect example of charity, love, and service. I have served in quite many different organizations of the church and through service in the community, school or church I have come to know that I am capable of things I never thought I could do. Giving service to others is one of the things Jesus did during His ministry on earth and one of my absolute favorite things to do.
