Hi I'm Hanna-Niel

I grew up in Philippines. I'm a cook. I'm different from other people because I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to eat that's why I love to cook. I'm not too interested in sports but I love so much going outside doing activities with my friends, hiking, swimming (though I'm not good at it), searching and discovering things in this world. I love to sing even I'm out of tune... I dance too. I love to socialize, communicate and build good friendship to anybody or anyone whoever would love and accept who I am, because for me, whoever he/she is I will love him/her, because we are taught by our Savior to love one another. You may not really know him/her in the first meet, but you could show (of course as a member of LDS) and give your good example of goodness and charity to all those who surrounds you, we came from one place before this life and we are now in one place where we can still be like before and we really are still brothers and sisters no matter what because that's who we really were and are and will be, beloved Son's and Daughters of our Heavenly Father. I love people, I love to serve, I love to teach, I love to inspire, I love to give, I love to help, I love to be a servant, I love to listen, I love to read the scriptures, I love to endure, I love Heavenly Father and our Savior and Redeemer even Jesus Christ, and I love being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is me and I will continue to stand in Holy Places, and my Father's will be done.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a born of the covenant which means I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since I was born. I never ever regret to be a member of this true church even once. How come our church is true? because I know, the Book of Mormon and the Bible testifies of it, the authority is in us, the principles and ordinances we have in our church and Temples that will give way to us to come back to the presence of our Heavenly Father is here, we have living prophet, Prophet Thomas S. Monson, He helps us and guides us in this days. We know that Families can be together forever, We know that we should all be baptized, be confirmed (receive the Holy Ghost) and endure to the End. Even how awful and dreadful are the challenges I face in life I count it as a blessings, because it gives me strength in faith to be more stronger, and it tests my patience, integrity, knowledge and my capacity to do good. Heavenly Father wants you to look at yourself that you can be way more, you are more than yourself, because you are not just who you are now, you are His glorious Son/Daughter. There are lots lots lots of things you should look and find in yourself. As what have been said in Matthew 5:48, be perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. I learned those things in our church and there's still many and more. Members of our church are not all perfect, we all do mistakes just like a normal people, that's why we go to church to heal ourselves and learn how to be perfect like our Father and even Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. I love to be a member of this true church, and I know it is true, I know the Book of Mormon is a word of God and I can't even explain how powerful it is to change lives and that it can really bring us back to the Kingdom of our Father. I do know that through Prophet Joseph Smith the fullness of the Gospel and true Church were been restored in and for this latter days, in the sacred name of my master Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I've been a Secretary in Young Women organization, where we leaded 12-17 years old young women of our church; and a Family Historian Consultant, where I help members or non-members to look for their ancestors (even their great great great great great great grandparents) specially (for us as a member) we search them to be baptized (with Priesthood authority) in the Temple, to be able to acquire all the ordinances as a requirement to come back to the presence of our Heavenly Father; and I've been a Ward Missionary in our Ward (Kaypian Ward, San Jose Del Monte Stake). Young Women Secretary, Family Historian Consultant and Ward Missionary were been my callings in our church, and they are all great and awesome, but the best calling for me that I had, was being a ward missionary, because we teach and encourage people to come unto Christ and be perfected in Him, we are sharing the great Joy and Happiness which the gospel gave to us. Because in this world all that we really have to do is to show and prove Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ that even we can't hear or see them we follow them and we seek Eternal Happiness and we choose to endure and be perfect like them. We are so busy doing studies in school, work, career, entertainments and doing worldly things, and missing the real divine purpose we have here on earth. Those things are just commercials in our lives for us to be competent in this life and to extend our lives, to eat, drink, learn, discover, to be aware, to know how to communicate, to share things with other people and more. Education is important, "BUT to be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God." (2 Nephi 9:29) We are taught to become educated, seek learning and wisdom, We all need it to apply it to the things we should prioritize, which is Prioritizing the will of our God. (His will is for our own sakes, happiness, profits and benefits) That's just how He really and truly loves us.
