Hi I'm Marilee

I live in Illinois. I have been a music teacher, school teacher and am a mom of 4. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my husband and four kids. I am going to graduate school and love the challenge, and am working on the balance of all the priorities. I love to blog, ride my bike and think about being a better parent. I love to serve in my community and church.

Why I am a Mormon

Becuase I feel like I am following the light. The more I learn, the more the pieces fit together. Following the prophet has made me nothing but happy and saved me from miserable circumstances. Mostly because when I pray about it the Holy Spirit tells the spirit inside of me that Joseph Smith did see God and Jesus Christ and restored the true Church of Jesus Chirst back to the earth. There's not much more to it than that.

How I live my faith

I try to love others as Christ would. I make and keep covenants with God. I teach a Sunday School class to adults and I play the piano for one of our meetings. I also get to go to camp with teenage girls one week in the summer and we have a great time. I also visit and serve people in our church with meals or babysitting or just a listening ear.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Well, really the church was started with Jesus Christ. But that church "fell away" as mentioned in Thessalonians 2:3. But Jesus Christ resoted the true church through Jospeh Smith the prophet in 1830. I see many people not joining any church today because they are all different and they don't know which one is right. Joseph Smith had that same question and problem. You can pray to know if Christ's true church is on the earth too. Show more Show less
