Hi I'm Sophia

I'm a missionary, I'm a pianist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was called to serve in the Puerto Rican San Juan mission for the LDS church, but was recently moved to serve in San Diego, California due to the hurricane affecting many areas in the Caribbean. My faith is a huge part of who I am, because it brings me answers to any soul-searching questions and problems, and shows me the real path to happiness. I have noticed the influence of Heavenly Father even in my life of music, and my math studies at college. He is in all things, and He helps in all things. Even though it was hard going through an evacuation partway through my mission, I know God has a plan for me wherever I am called to serve.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know who I am. I know that it's the only way to come fully to Christ, and it teaches the fulness of His teachings. Through the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I know where I'm going, what my purpose is as a daughter of God, and what I must do to become my best self. I believe that Heavenly Father knows who I am, and He will bless me as He sees fit. I know that He has called men to be his prophet and apostles to assist us in our journey through earth.

How I live my faith

I love to study histories, scriptures, doctrines, and writings of our church. I like to learn more from other people's perspectives and experiences so they can help me in my own life and interactions with people. I try to help others feel comfortable around me by being kind and considerate to all around me. I believe that's the most important thing anyone can do.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

All things testify of a living God who cares for and loves His children. I am constantly amazed by the beauty of the earth and the absolute perfect conditions that are able to sustain life for us. All these things could not have come to pass by accident or chance, and I have felt His presence in everything in the world. I have a testimony that if we listen, we will be able to feel His influence in everything. Show more Show less
