Hi I'm Marsha

I was born into the Gospel fold, but discovered faith on my own.

About Me

When you look in the mirror, you wonder just who you are. Some of the best things I am come from my experiences, the difficult ones and the successful ones. One of my most successful experiences has been being a mother and a grandmother. Once a woman said to me, "I knew I'd love my grandchildren, but I didn't realize I'd grow another heart." I found this to be so true. I am a blue personality type, my love-language is quality conversations. I earn a living by helping others progress towards their own goals as a life and relationship coach. I love many things, but high on the list is knowledge, reading, dancing, writing and experiencing the world and its people.

Why I am a Mormon

Like the Primary song says, "I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ, of Latter-day Saints. . . " I am 'Mormon' because that is the essential language of my spirituality. It is how I express those things deepest in my heart, those intangible longings that are otherwise inexpressible. I serve through the organization, I give of my resources through the charitable arm and I almost always gain back far more than I am capable of giving. I am a Mormon, because that is what resonates spiritually in my genes, my soul and my heart.

How I live my faith

Living in faith is sort of like Indiana Jones stepping onto the invisible bridge. We know it is there, we've been told it is there, we even believe it MUST be there, but yet we still can not see it. Some things we do, we do because we hope that they will, in the end, be to our best advantage and serve those we love. I expect that is the best description of how I live my faith. I do what I know is best (most of the time) and I continue to get up and dust myself off when I fail to do so. It is the getting up that matters.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being 'Mormon' is like being a part of a family. When you visit other states, other cities, even other countries where you do not speak the same language, and you attend services, you are embraced as 'one of us'. You belong wherever you land. It is at times difficult in a world of secularism, and yet it is freeing because the laws and teachings ultimately lead to greater freedom by avoiding the pitfalls and pain that breaking those laws lead to. It is like having the 'teachers answer book' of life, and all that you have to do is now and again figure out 'why' the answer is the answer, while still knowing that it is indeed the correct way to live for greatest joy.
