Hi I'm Valeria Carrillo

I was born in Peru. I am a student at the University of Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am nineteen years old, I enjoy hanging out with friends, riding bikes, golf, knitting, and rock climbing. I am going to the University of Utah studying Marketing in business.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the church is true!! I know that this is the only true Church of Jesus Christ, that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and can guide us through our mortal lives, I know that we are blessed and live in a glorious dispensation with living prophets and priesthood keys on this Earth, I know that Joseph Smith restored the church, I know that our Heavenly Father wants to give us everlasting life and eternal happiness more than anything, I know that Christ lives and that through his atonement we can return to our Heavenly Father's presence once again. There is no other way to salvation except through our Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ. In times of trial and tribulation Heavenly Father and our Savior have been there for me through it all. I am certain that there is nothing better or more valuable than having a testimony of His church. I know that by asking with true intent from bottom of your heart that the Holy Ghost will testify these truths to you too! The Book is Blue and The Church is True!

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ I strive to follow Christ's example everyday. I try to serve others, love those around me as He would love them, stay positive, and work hard at anything I am presented with. Although I try my best to live my faith I make plenty of mistakes. Thankfully, I have the wonderful blessing to repent and start over each and everyday. I love that I can change and better myself everyday! I live my faith as a representative of Jesus Christ.
