Hi I'm Mariel

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!

About Me

I am a Labor and Delivery RN with a blessed career of witnessing new life enter into our world. I am married to a wonderful man, my best friend, who has shared the true Gospel of our Lord with me, Derek Speller. And as we read the scriptures together and ponder them, the presence of the truth makes a big, positive impact in our lives. My husband's testimony is a great example and he is an Amazing support in my life and career. We are blessed with two wonderful children, Erica and Michael. it is my hope they will also make the choice to follow the true Gospel and we can all be together in the Celestial Kingdom. After 4 years of being a convert, I feel it has been the best decision I have made in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I want to be able to continue to learn more about the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is my goal to follow our Heavenly Father's commandments to be able to live with Him in the Celestial Kingdom.

How I live my faith

I live my fatih the best I can always remembering to be a good example and to be a positive influence for my family, my friends, and all those I come into contact with. By always keeping focused that there is a higher purpose why we are here and that all of our decisions should be based on our eternal goals keeps everything in perspective. It is my hope that by doing this I can have a good spiritual influence for everyone to also know and feel the love of our Heavenly Father and that He does want us to be happy as we live a worthy life.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

By meeting with the missionaries and having the four main discussions, each one of us can decide for ourselves if we want to become a member and be part of the true Church of Jesus Christ. Then, being baptized and confirmed will be the best experience in your life. Show more Show less

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

I am very grateful for the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ. I know that because of Him, I can and will be able to be in the presence of my Heavenly Father one day. I know that in my deepest and darkest moments I pray for the power of the Atonement to help me back into the light and I feel the strongest and most powerful presence of love of our Lord and Savior. Because of this, I know that nothing on this planet will ever take this truth I know and feel in my heart...that He lives, Our Savior lives and my heavenly Father loves me and that by keeping my covenants I will be with Him again. I say all of these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Show more Show less
