Maren Schultz!: convert, awesome, missionary, Mormon.

Hi I'm Maren Schultz!

About Me

I was going to college to study Social Work. I have chosen Social Work because I want to help other people in different aspects of their lives. I try to incorporate my future career with the scriptures and I enjoy finding new ways to help people and make them feel loved. I have chosen to take time off from college to serve a full time mission in the Utah Provo mission from March 2013 to September 2014.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know the church is true. I have asked Heavenly Father many times and every time it has been confirmed to me that this is His true church. I haven't always had the easiest life. I have bounced around to different churches searching for a feeling of love, care, and truth. I have never felt love like I have in this church. Every time I read my scriptures I am reminded of His love for us and the truth He has shown us. I was brought to the church by a friend of mine and was baptized 4 months later on August 1, 2010. I love my Heavenly Father and I love His church.

Personal Stories

How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?

The Book of Mormon has been an amazing source of inspiration to me. Upon becoming a member of the Church, I started to read little bits of the Book of Mormon. It wasn't until after being a member for a year that I really started to read the Book of Mormon diligently. Through reading it, I have found myself getting and feeling closer to God. There is an unexplainable feeling of peace and comfort that I get from reading the Book of Mormon. I have taken Moroni's challenge and I have asked of God if this book is true and I can tell you and testify to you that the Book of Mormon is 100% true! There have been times that I have been discouraged or in need of answers and after I have prayed sincerely to God, He has shown me His answer through the scriptures, especially in the Book of Mormon. I have never read the Book of Mormon without feeling the Spirit and I know that it has brought me closer to God. I have learned to listen, pray, follow the commandments, and be patient. The Book of Mormon is an amazing book and I encourage anybody with doubts, trials, broken and joyful hearts alike to read the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by indulging in the scriptures and putting them to work. When I lived on a college campus I strived to be an example for my non-member friends and peers. As a pioneer in my family, I am a walking example for them and I hope that I have let God shine through me. In my walk, I have recently decided to serve a mission for the church. I am serving in the Utah Provo Mission until 2014. I pray LOTS and read frequently. I try to actively be a part of my ward and in my mission!
