Hi I'm Joan Azucena

I am a Filipino. I'm a freelance writer, photographer and vocalist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a freelance writer, photographer and singer. I love life, my family and the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that meeting the missionaries and accepting their lessons when I was 13 years old wasn't just a matter of coincidence. I know that the Lord wanted me to receive His gospel because He wants me to know Him and the love He has for me and because He wants me to be happy in this world. I once was lost and is now found because of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know it is what the Lord wants me to be -- a member of His true and living Church on earth, that I may know the way to return to His presence someday.

How I live my faith

I teach early morning seminary during weekdays and basic gospel doctrines to investigators and new members of the church every Sunday. I also help in the Family History program of the church as a consultant wherein I help the members in our ward gather and submit names of their ancestors to be given and performed saving ordinances in the temple. I am also part of the Public Affairs team in our stake as Newsroom Director in which I write news and reports about welfare, humanitarian and community projects and efforts of the stake involving and linking with local government agencies and other organizations. I am also part of the fellowship team of our local Institute Program (a program of the Church providing spiritual education to college students) as Public Relations officer ensuring that the students are informed of the activities to happen or of some important announcement and rescuing the inactive students. I also teach voice lessons in our Talent Development course at Institute. I try my best to show my love and gratitude for my Savior by giving my best in these assignments given me.
