Hi I'm MarLee

I believe good planning allows spontaneity.

About Me

 I am a dietitian, a sister and I love tennis.

Why I am a Mormon

I have choosen to implement the teachings of Jesus Christ and His prophets in my life and as I have done so I have come to know with a deep peace that those teachings bless my life and the lives of people around me. I have come to know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's kingdom restored to the earth today. I am a Mormon because being a Mormon has helped me know and love my Savior.

How I live my faith

My faith is a part of me. It is not something that I do just on Sundays, but impacts who I am each day. Because of the gospel and the example of Jesus Christ, I know that service is a way of life, not just isolated actions. I am grateful for the opportunities I have to serve in the Church as a member of the women's organization. I arrange activities for the woman of my congregation. I also had the blessing of serving a full-time mission for eighteen months. This was an amazing life-changing event because I was able to focus entirely on the salvation of other people.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has helped me understand that this life is about finding joy and meaning through becoming more Christlike. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a compilation of ancient prophets' writings. The prophets lived in the Americas and were called of God and given the authority to speak for God on earth, just as the prophets of the Old Testament and the apostles of the New Testament. Their writings were translated by the latter-day prophet Joseph Smith, who too was given the authority and power of God to direct His work on earth. As I have read and prayed about the Book of Mormon, I have felt the Spirit testify to me that it is true. Its gospel teachings have changed my life.   Show more Show less
