Hi I'm Cecilia

I'm a Mormon. Soy Mormona.

About Me

I am a very happy, blessed and thankful child of God. I am originally from Monterrey, Mexico and have been living in the States for the last 10 years. I served a full time mission in New Jersey 2002-2004. I have a Master's degree in Social Work and I work as a Counselor for adolescents who have been sexually abused.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because one day back in 1999 I knelt down and prayed to my Heavenly Father to let me know what I was missing. I remember exactly how I felt. I had everything I wanted: a family, friends, a job and getting an education. Even though, I was still missing something which I wasn't quite sure what it was. I meditated for a couple of days while reading the Book of Mormon, going to church, and listening to the missionaries. And the answer to my prayer came, as I was doing all of these things. I felt joy and hope. I knew exactly what I was missing. I needed to get to know my Heavenly Father and come closer to Him.

How I live my faith

I wake up every day giving thanks to my Heavenly Father for giving me one more chance to live. I see every day as an opportunity to share with others my testimony of the Savior, either by words or works. I share the gospel with my friends and acquaintances in every opportunity I have. I work as a rape crisis counselor. I see adolescents who experience traumatic events, who suffer and who sometimes seem hopeless. As I see them, I pray that I can be of some help for them and that they can see in my eyes that there's hope and a Savior who loves them dearly.
