Hi I'm Lilia Dudas

I was born in Kazakhstan and I live in Cedar City. I study law at SUU. I am a Mormon!! :-)

About Me

I am currently in college to study law. I love to ride horses, kick box, and work with animals! I have traveled to 28 countries and 19 states but I intend to travel a lot more! I work at a veterinary clinic and at a gym. I believe in service to others is highly important in gaining respect with not only others, but yourself. I own one awesome pit bull named Bella and a Beta fish named Frank.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Before being baptized, I didn't really have a big faith. I absolutely knew that Jesus was the Son of God and that He died on the cross for our sins, but I never felt the Spirit that everyone had felt. My first encounter with the Church was at an Arby's in Utah and there were two missionaries in front of us. I had asked one of my friends "what business do those guys work at?" since Cedar City isn't a metropolitan city. My friend stated "those are Mormon missionaries". From then on, I was introduced to the Church. When I went back to live in Atlanta, I asked one of my friends if there were any missionaries by me. He had told me "go on Mormon.org and they'll locate you." As I met with the missionaries, I came to learn a lot more about the church and really felt good about deciding to be baptized. When I was baptized, I felt such a good feeling inside of me, and I knew that was the Holy Spirit inside of me. Since then, I've been on such a good path and I intend on keeping with it. I have and will continue to follow the gospel because when you believe in God and what He can do, you will be amazed at all the good things to come.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every week and reading my scriptures in the Book of Mormon and watching talks. I am a convert to the church and I am doing great on learning more! I live by the Words of Wisdom, the Law of Chasity, etc. Yay!
