Hi I'm Daniella Alva

I am creative, 1/2 Peruvian and a Child of God and I am Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Washington state, raised in North Central Louisiana and lived in South Texas for two years . I am the second oldest of 9 children (3 girls and 6 boys).I am half Peruvian and I love my heritage! I love laughing, sleeping, eating, long nature walks, soccer, painting and sewing. When I eventually go to college I plan to study fashion design.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in middle school, I read the Book of Mormon to see if it was true and if I needed to continue in the LDS faith. I felt and still continue to feel it is another testament of Jesus Christ. My answer came as very subtle peaceful feeling. I know that I am a beloved daughter of God and I am just as important and you are I know that God loves all his children. It is clearly shown in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I love the complete Gospel of Jesus Christ!

How I live my faith

Currently I am working to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I love serving others and feeling the love of God through the people I am an given the privilege to serve. When I am with family, I love teaching my siblings about the things I have learned by praying and studying the scriptures. I also love hearing about what they have learned and come to know.
