Hi I'm Vanessa

I grew up in Florida. I am serving a full-time mission in California, Anaheim Spanish Speaking, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music and am majoring in Choral Music Education. I love to go to the beach and relax on the sand. I am a big movie watcher and love to listen to all types of music. I love to play the piano and guitar and hopefully one day the Cello:)

Why I am a Mormon

To become Mormon was something I had to decide when I was a child going through school. I've grown up Mormon but where I am from there are not many other Mormons my age. I was the only Mormon in my graduating class of 500. But I had to decide for myself in when I was a preteenager in middle school. To be constantly surrounded by my peers who were either not supportive or not understanding of my religion really had to make me think if I really wanted to be an active member of the church. When I got to high school, so many questions arose in my head and I decided that in order to figure the truth for myself, I was going to see what my friends thought about things. I was still active in the church and so I would also get answers from there as well. When I finished high school, I found answers to questions that were deeper than I thought I would ever find from the church compared to when I would ask people and only get them to scratch the surface. The Church's doctrine just makes so much sense to me and helps me understand why there are so many varying opinions and how to decide which way is the way I need to go. I have always been an active member of the Church but now I have a personal understanding on why I live His Gospel.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full time missionary in California, Anaheim Spanish Speaking.
