Hi I'm Juanita

I grew up in the island of Guam, I helped care for foster children. I'm a Mormon

About Me

Hello, my name is Juanita, I am a wife, a mother, a grandmother, my interests are, caring for the needs of others. My children were just 6, 4, & 3, & of course not to mention my husband, it was pretty hard traveling on a greyhound bus from the west coast to the southeast with only $50.00 in our pockets. My husband got his job, 3 weeks after we got to our destination & I got my first job as a waitress in a Italian Restaurant. Now, I am currently working in retail for 21yrs. I am persuing a career as a pharmacy technician or in medical billing & coding whatever the Lord wants me to do. I love to cook, I love to care for my autistic son, I love to invite the missionaries over in my home, & so as my husband loves to cook for the missionaries like they are our very own children. Although he is not yet a member but we're working on it. 

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon, as I have prayed & pondered on the Book of Mormon for four hours to really absorb in my thick head, of course I was. I nearly killed myself when my husband lost his job in 2002 & six months later our funds depleted. So, I called my daughter who is already a member since 1998. I got an appointment with the Bishop, so I got to start taking the discussions & got Baptized on 3 May 2003.

How I live my faith

I live my faith to the fullest, as long as I continue to help others in need then I am fulfilling my calling. I try to bring investigators to church even if they don't feel up to it, I move on to the next one.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Juanita
A husband & wife's role in the family is to nurture their children, direct them to do the right thing, teach them to love even when it is extremely hard in this world where there is so much turmoil & families are tearing apart because of financial difficulties, infedility, social addiction whether it may be alcohol, drugs, gambling or even pornography. It wasn't easy in my family, there was alot of challenges, but Jesus Christ had always been my hero. Regardless how many times I have fallen from grace. Show more Show less

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Juanita
I don't really answer this question like I would like but I told them that practice ended in the 1890's. We abide with the law & live by the law, it's those who have fallen away from the church but formed their fundamental teachings & called themselves, Fundamentals.  Show more Show less

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Juanita
It is very important to us to prepare for emergency situation, not only to help ourselves but also help those who are less fortunate. Show more Show less
