Hi I'm Ilse

I was born in Mexico and I grew up in Texas. I love to play volleyball and sing, but overall I enjoy making people laugh.

About Me

I enjoy being outdoors and I love contemplating nature. In the fall, I love going into the mountains and playing in the springs. I also love the beach! I am a college student with big dreams and aspirations. I will be majoring in Social Work and I am excited to be involved in this much needed work!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed and felt a confirmation from my Heavenly Father that this is the true Church. It is so beautiful to me that I can feel many confirmations of its veracity throughout my day- I just need to pay attention. Prayer is so important. Reading the Book of Mormon has been so essential to me and I appreciate the gospel and Christ's atonement as I read this wonderful book.

How I live my faith

Growing up, I always moved around a lot. Although this was very hard at times, what helped me transition was the love that I felt from members of the Church no matter where I moved to. Brothers and Sisters of our ward would stop by and would let us know that they were thinking about us. It is so incredible how we all help each other out- just like Christ would want us to. I've served as a teacher in Primary, giving a 3-4 years old class. Their excitement to know more about Heavenly Father is just so amazing to me.
