Hi I'm Penelope

I grew up in Southern California. I will be serving in the Ecuador Quito North Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have completed one year at Brigham Young University and will be serving in the Ecuador Quito North Mission beginning in September of 2018. Afterwards I will return to BYU to get a degree in psychology.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, my conversion came when I was sixteen years old and gained a testimony of the Book of Mormon. After reading this book, I knew that it was true and that it came from a prophet of God. My testimony of the prophet Joseph Smith and of the Book of Mormon have led me to develop a special relationship with my Savior and my Heavenly Father. It is because of these relationships that I experience so much joy and happiness in this life. Knowing that I can return to live in with God again and be with my family forever gives me hope.

How I live my faith

I have participated in leading our congregation in singing hymns each week, as well as visiting women in my ward to minister to them. I have also served on committees that have organized activities for the youth of the church.
