Hi I'm Guilherme Mendes

I'm Brazilian, I'm a Missionary and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Born and raised in Rio, Brazil, I'm Mormon since as a child, and currently now I'm serving in the Utah Ogden Mission and after words I'm intend head into college and work so that in the long run I can have a promising life. I'm so thankful to be on a mission. I am very happy by living the gospel and I invite everyone to know.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the Gospel is where I need to be, and where I can find the greatest Happiness in life, some people doesn't understand why, just because we follow principles which include some restrictions, but that's the way of God, he wants to protect all his children by living these principles, which will help us always have his spirit with us. The Lord doesn't want us to live with any kind of addiction, we know for ourselves what some of things can become very addictive and lead to serious problems. As I said I had Pornography of my life for all my teenage years, I've seen what I lost through that, I remember my mind and behavior started to change, I realized later I was becoming a person who I'm not.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through challenges which grew my faith, serving one another, praying and fasting, always seek to be in harmony with the principles of the gospel when we apply. I was find challenges, but it's always great blessing for me as living the principles of Gospel, because there where I find protection, Happiness and Hope. We know that God is our Father in Heaven, sometimes it's not easy, but I we going forward even on hard times we'll see the blessings for us. I'm currently a full time missionary in the Utah Ogden Mission, I know I'm not perfect and even struggle sometimes, but I know the Lord is with me as I try the best I can be. Sharing the Gospel is been a need opportunity for me to grow and learn with hard situations I face.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Guilherme Mendes
Pornography is dangerous and it's high addictive, this can distort the sacred intimacy between man and woman. It also changes the normal status of your mind and getting start to have other kinds of behavior which are not natural with yourself. If you are evolved with Pornography, seek help immediately! Don't wait for tomorrow! Our Heavenly Father loves us so much, he's willing to forgive us as if we are willing to repent and make the change, I know it's not something easy to do the change, it will require us Faith on the Savior, living the Gospel, striving be an example, read the scriptures, pray often, attend church, be in a good environment, bear your testimony, share with others about your addiction, small things like that for example, will help you to build the strength you need.
