Hi I'm Celeste

I grew up in New Mexico. I'm studying theatre. I'm serving a mission soon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in New Mexico, where we have, in my opinion, the best green chile in the whole world! I love to act and dance, sometimes at the same time, and I will be leaving on a mission in May. I love hiking and swimming, and I love to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

My family was Catholic until I was six. We moved to Utah when I was three years old, and my sister and I made friends with one of the girls down the street, who gave us a Book of Mormon. My mom read it and knew that it was true. We had to wait for three years to get permission from my dad to be baptized, but when we were, I was happy. As I got older, I wasn't sure what to believe anymore, but I finally gained a testimony of our Savior's love and the truth of the church. I know that our Savior loves us and that this is His true Church on the Earth today. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Russell M Nelson IS the prophet of God on this Earth today.

How I live my faith

I love to visit the elderly and serve them by sitting and visiting with them. I pray and read my scriptures every day and I try to live the principles taught by Jesus Christ of kindness and charity. I love to bake for people and bring them treats when they are sick or having a bad day.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

President Russell M. Nelson is the prophet of God on this Earth today, and I know with all of my heart that he has been called to serve and minister to the the people not just of the church but also of the world. Show more Show less
