Hi I'm Yahaira

I am a student, friend, daughter, and more importantly, I am Mormon. Also, I love anything that can make me laugh.

About Me

I am a twenty year old that loves food, music, singing, and spending time with family and friends. One of my well known characteristics is that I love to smile and laugh. I am bilingual and look towards becoming an ESL teacher. I enjoy nature and often ponder about the greatness of God. Previously, I was serving a mission in the great Texas San Antonio Mission. That is where I found the greatest joy of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a heartbreaking event in my life at a very young age. I was in need of comfort, love, direction, and especially a sense of purpose. I am grateful for those two missionaries that knocked on my door and although, I was a bit reluctant at first they changed my life when they shared the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I was baptized at the age 13! It has been an interesting ride ever since. The missionaries were definitely right when they said I would find what I was in need of. However, I have found so much more. I have found life-long friends, served a mission, gained a testimony, and have a greater love for my Savior Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. I love my Savior and Redeemer. There is no greater love than the pure love of Christ.

How I live my faith

One of my all time favorite scripture is 1 Timothy 4:12 and it says, "Let no man despise thy youth; but be though an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity." The best way to live your faith is to become and to be an example of what you believe. I love singing hymns, reading my scriptures, praying often, and attending church. Just by these small simple things we grow to love and come to know our Savior.
