Hi I'm Dusti Pereira

I am a convert to the Church. I love to be outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be outdoors. I love hiking, repelling, playing tennis and snowboarding. I love to be in the presence of family and friends. I love journaling and scrapbooking. I am finishing up schooling at a 6 month technical college to become a Pharmacy Technician and hope to go to work full time after serving a full time mission in the Jacksonville, Florida. I love listening to music, and dancing and singing to it with friends. I love traveling and never pass up the opportunity to go on adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness it brings me. I am a convert to the church, and I know what it is like to not have the gospel. I was introduced to the church as a young girl, when neighbors would bring me to church with them. A few years later, when I was 10 years old my mom went to a temple visitor center while she was on vacation and filled out a contact card to get more information about the church. Before she was home from vacation missionaries showed up at our house 3 states away. The missionaries taught us the discussions for a few weeks, we prayed and decided as a family that we were going to be baptized. A year later we were able to go through the temple together to be sealed together for Eternity. I continue to follow His gospel because I have gained a testimony that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me. I have a brother, Jesus Christ who died for me and who knows everything that I am going through. I know that The Book of Mormon is the true word of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching the young women in my ward. I love being around them, especially since not long ago, I was where they are. I attend church every Sunday. I study The Book of Mormon, and pray daily. I strive to obey the commandments and when I fall short I know that because of my Savior, Jesus Christ I am able to repent and be forgiven of my sins. I try to be a good example to everyone around me by what I say and do.
