Hi I'm Stephanie

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. Went to USU for a year and I am now going to serve a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family is from Ecuador. I was born and raised in Utah and love spending time with friends and family. I enjoy being outdoors and love swimming in the summer. I was a competitive tumbler in high school and heavily involved in a group called Latinos in Action. I went to college for a year and then I worked for a year so I could prepare to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother converted to the church when she was 18 and has been an active member since. My father is an inactive member currently but supports my beliefs and choices as I decide for myself who I want to become. I grew up with the gospel being a big part of my life. I have come to know that this gospel is true and that God is aware of who I am and my need and wants. There have been times when I have questioned my beliefs. Through prayer, studying the scriptures and wonderful leaders and members of the church I have felt the spirit and come to know for myself how perfect this gospel is and how it can bless my life. I have also had wonderful callings such as "Ward Missionary". I have learned so much by being a ward missionary from my companion and also some of the experiences we've had when we go out. I now can not wait to go serve the Lord for 18 months in Las Vegas as a full time missionary. I love this gospel is much. It gives me so much peace and strength and I want everybody to experience that as well.

How I live my faith

Being a Ward Missionary has taught me a lot about how to live my faith. I love serving those around me and have realized how important it is. I also read my scriptures and pray to understand what I read so that I gain a stronger knowledge of the Gospel. I want to become the person Heavenly father wants me to be and will continue to try and do my best to learn from all those around me and will ask for guidance from the lord.
