Hi I'm Elle

I'm from the Philippines, I love music and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love singing and playing music instruments like piano and guitar. I'm a 3rd year Bachelor of Arts in English student.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, baptized when I was 8, and attended all church gatherings. My parents always bear their testimonies the this church is true, I wasn't sure if it is, but I remained active because it became a 'hobby' to wake up at 7 in the morning, get dressed and go to church. But then, when I was 16, I started questioning everything about the Church, though I didn't stop attending all church gatherings, in my heart I wasn't sure if this Church is true; if I need to remain active to the church or should I find and observe to the other churches out there. I don't want to spend my whole life to the wrong one, Then I started daily reading and praying about the Book of Mormon and the church, and in January that very next year, after I finished the last page of the Book of Mormon I asked our Heavenly Father; like a confused daughter to His Father, with my heart out, if the Church is true, if Joseph Smith is ordained to restore to gospel of Jesus Christ to these last days and if my Parents' beliefs are all true. after saying my prayer, I cried when I felt an immediate and distinct feeling I'd never felt in my whole life, the feeling that my Heavenly Father 'literally' embracing me to His arms; telling me to be comforted and that every-single thing in the Church are all true: from the prophets to the Book of Mormon to the Priesthood power. I'm happy to have that glimpse of joy, though I didn't saw Him, I know He is real, He loves me and you, He will not let you stay in a state of confusion if you will do your part and then ask in faith to our Father in Heaven. I'm sure He will help you know the truth, it may not come instantly; like me, it took a year and tons of efforts and faithful prayers; but I know He will answer in His perfect time. His Church restored again on face of the earth. Joseph Smith was pre-ordained to be the prophet of restoration. I know all the things I say are true and leave them in the name of our loving Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
