Hi I'm Thania Portillo

I am a Colorado native. I will be serving the people of Brazil as a missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student. I love the mountains and outdoors activities. I enjoy playing tennis. I live and breathe my Hispanic culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I have felt the love of Jesus Christ in my life. Whenever I'm facing a trial and I feel like I'm helpless, I remember that Christ understands what I am going through. He suffered for every sin and suffering ever. He endured every one of our trials. He knows and understands us so well. And because of this, Jesus Christ's Atonement for our sins makes it possible for us to have a second chance. THERE IS HOPE THROUGH CHRIST. Through His commandments, through what He asks us to do, we are able to truly see the light to a happy, hopeful, faithful life. My life is a million times better knowing that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my friend. He wants us to be happy; He wants us to succeed; He wants us to know that through His Gospel we can life the best Earthly life ever.

How I live my faith

One thing I love to do is reach out to people. When I notice someone who isn't having the best day, or when someone just needs someone to talk to, I will go talk to them and try to cheer them up. I will be as friendly, smiley, and helpful as possible. Within my church ward, I have been a piano player and a visiting teacher. I feel like that through these callings, I am able to reach out to people.
