Hi I'm Clarissa

I'm a wife, mother and soon to be student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and proud mother to my baby girl, and am currently in the process of continuing my college education amidst my own husband's endeavors in law school. I love the outdoors and many activities such as mountain biking, walks, rock climbing, ziplining, bonfires and more. I love to dance, and also enjoy music, and while I have been gifted with talents of singing...I am very shy about it in public. I also love to learn new things that present a challenge, and will practice whatever that challenge may be until it is perfected and presentable.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has always felt strongly about building a good religious foundation, and while they passed these values onto me and my siblings, there was much confusion about which church is right. Throughout my childhood, I attended several different church meetings, gone to camps, and heard several different views from pastors and ministers alike. At 18, I transferred to another college and temporarily moved in with my uncle until I could find an apartment. My uncle is LDS. My first sunday, I told him of my plans to find another church to attend that morning, and he pointed out the fact that as a Latter-Day Saint, the values remain the same no matter where you live. You don't have to keep looking for a new church everytime you move. I realized he was right, and with my uncle's permission, I invited the LDS missionaries over to hear the discussions. I asked very difficult questions, and was not always ready to listen, but after months of searching my heart, I knelt down and asked Heavenly Father if it was true, and I knew without a doubt that it was and is. I have been beaming with true happiness ever since which can only further confirm the truthfulness of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday with my husband and daughter. I visit teach monthly gospel lessons to a couple of sisters in my ward with my companion, and supervise other sisters in the ward to make sure that they are also visiting and being visited.
