Hi I'm Aciana Franco

I am from Heber City, Utah. I have been called to serve in the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission. I love Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing, act, read, and work. I have 14 people in my family. I am currently going to college to attain my Bachelors Degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have seen and felt the blessings that come from this gospel. I know God loves me and knows who I am. There is no other way possible for me to get back to Him unless I strive to live this gospel. I have felt my Savior's love as I try to use His Atonement everyday to become a better person. This gospel changes me and helps me to be not of the world even though I live in it.

How I live my faith

I currently have a calling in Primary. I serve as a co-teacher for the age 12 group. I love to live this gospel! I have served in the community with acts from helping the elderly to picking up trash around a reservoir.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Aciana Franco
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is the only way to overcome the effects of the Fall of Adam and Eve. It allows us to repent of our sins, give us comfort, and heal us. Through the Atonement, we can strive to become like our Savior, Jesus Christ. In order to receive the blessings of the Atonement in our lives, we must have faith in Jesus Christ, repent of our sins, be baptized and confirmed by one who has the authority, receive the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end. It was necessary to Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life because He was part immortal and was perfect. No one else on Earth had those qualifications. Because a perfect man atoned for us, He can help us overcome our own faults and become like Him. Show more Show less
