Hi I'm Angelica

I live in New York. I am a convert, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a High School student, I am the oldest child of five and have a passion for Mountains. I usually spend all my time listening to music or reading. I love museums, and Russian Culture.

Why I am a Mormon

I was Baptized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints on August 27, 2011. Before this date, I hated Mormons, I hated my Mom for letting some guys with ties into my kitchen. I couldn't stand that she was changing her life around just because. Until one day my "best friend"/ only friend, left me hanging. I realized how alone I was, and how much I was missing at home with my family and my mom. So I agreed to meet with the missionaries at a fast food place . They told me how they had left their homes for TWO whole years, just to go around teaching people like me. They had left everything behind, families, friends, jobs, cars, all of it, just because they loved the gospel and felt it work in their hearts. They had slowly become my friends, people I could trust. The missionaries helped me realize the walls I had built up from past trials in my life. Since the day I was baptized, I have never been happier. Because everyday I wake up and know in my heart and soul, that I am never, ever alone.

How I live my faith

I spend most of my time with my family. I love reading the scriptures with my mom. Through the months I have built the strongest bonds with my family members. The gospel has brought forward the most beautiful friendships in my life. I stay away from negative situations and relationships by the choices I make everyday, like being honest, and surrounding myself with safe people and places. I do not consume anything unhealthy for me so I can always think and act as clearly as I possibly can. I try my hardest every day to be the best I can, and I pray to the Lord to make me all he wants me to be. By doing this, I am stronger and smarter in all things I do.
