Hi I'm Juan

I'm an Artist, Runner, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 20 years old and I have lived in Texas my entire life.I have two awesome parents,two siblings and an older sister. I love to draw,read,cook (cooking is not one of my talents but at least I try) ,and rock climb. I'm not much for sports but I was in a track team when I was in high school. I participated in 400 meters races and I was also a pole vaulter.Cooking is not one of my talents but at least I try. When I have extra time I just read or draw because its where i could express myself and where I am in my own world. I want to study art and have a minor on education. Well that's all about me.. well besides that I'm just a average everyday guy.

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't much for religion, but that changed when one of my best friends decided to go on a mission. That impacted me so much that i wanted to find out why he wanted to go. So I did my part and read from the Book of Mormon and when I prayed something inside of me sparkled. I felt a burning sensation that i cannot describe. The best part was that with the atonement of Jesus Christ I could be cleansed from my sins. I felt loved and sometime i would wonder why would God forgive me if i was not a good person in the past but then the answer I would get is that He loves me so much that he wants me back in his presence. When that feelings come I feel much better and for sure i could say this is that I am a child of God and I love him. I'm currently serving a mission in New York and its the best decision I had ever made.

How I live my faith

I was a Sunday school teacher for the youth when I had the chance and sometimes when I have the chance I would teach kids. I participate in when the church have service and my favorite thing to do is when I would go with the missionaries when they had to visit someone. I would visit and help my friends when they where having problems. I never really had a church calling but one thing i could say is that I love to serve others.
