Hi I'm Rebecca Portillo

I love soccer, playing sports, and being with my family. Most importantly, I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I use to live in California, and then my family moved to Missouri. It took a while, but I think I'm pretty use to it now. I love soccer (even though I'm not good at playing it), and my favorite team is FC Barcelona. I love reading my scriptures, running, playing sports, and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I don't know what else I would be. While my parents were investigating, my sisters and I were practically raised in the Church. It has been a part of my life since I can remember. I can't even imagine where, who, or what I would be without it. My family has gone through some trials and persecutions, and through that time I have never felt closer to Heavenly Father. My testimony has never been so strong. I am not perfect, and I still have trials and am weak, but I have a firm knowledge and testimony that when I turn to Him, He will help me overcome them. I am a Mormon because I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me. Because of Their love I am able to accomplish the things that I know I would have a harder time with if I wasn't a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I currently don't have a calling, but I try to magnify what I believe in by being obedient to what Heavenly Father has asked of me, and by being an example to others.
