Hi I'm Liliana Valenzuela

I grew up in Cowpens South Carolina. My mom's name is Katherine.I was born in the church and have been a member my whole life.

About Me

I am the middle child of the family. I have been a Mormon my whole life and I'm grateful for it. I was baptized at 8. I have friends who are currently looking into our church and this is the reason I a creating this. I am in High School. Which is the hardest places to get away from temptations. I have a couple of family who currently aren't going to church and i am really hoping they will come back. I have a brother who is getting ready for a mission and he is the reason that I want to go on my mission. Being Mormon has helped me grow closer to heavenly father and Jesus Christ. I am currently attending seminary as a first year. I love seminary. i have been singing my whole life and have done a lot of performances and currently can play the guitar and piano. i am also in honors choir at my high school. i draw a little and sing a lot. [its normal for me too burst out into song just ask my family.]

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I choose this choice and yes I was born into the church but my mom doesn't force me to go she said it is my choice because I have agency. I also love church. I also hope that my grandma who is very dear to me will come back if shes sees my example.

How I live my faith

I try to be a light to my friends and also try not to give in to temptations. Which is hard. (Peer pressure) in seminary our teacher told us a quote that if scientist's found the gold plates and could understand them the whole world would be converted right. False because so many people think their faith is right so they wouldn't be converted. I also was reading my scriptures on the bus one day and my friend started reading with me and was asking me questions I didn't know the answer to but when I started trying to answer the words came straight to me just like that. I'm a mini missionary here born and raised. I do missionary work but teaching the gospel at school. I also have sent the missionaries to some of my friends house because they have asked and wanted them to. so yea!!!!!!!!
