Hi I'm Mary

I love teaching, reading, and family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello! I grew up on the East Coast of the United States and have recently moved with my husband to the beautiful South. I studied business in college and earned a graduate degree in teaching. I was an LDS missionary in France in Switzerland, and part of my heart is still there! I love spending time with my family, especially my husband. We are looking forward to the arrival of our first child!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are faithful members of the LDS church and raised me to love God and to understand His plan for me. When I got older, it was time for me to find a testimony of my own and decide if I would follow their path. I did this through prayer, reading the scriptures, and pondering. Heavenly Father answered my prayers in His own time, in the way that was intimately tailored for me.

How I live my faith

I love the Lord very much, and feel nearer to him when I read my scriptures and pray daily. I feel lucky to be able to actively serve in His restored church. I gain great happiness from trying to help others and sharing that which brings me peace. I also find great joy in attending the temple.

What is the Relief Society?

Relief Society is the LDS church's inspired organization for women. It unites us as adult, female members all across the world! It provides a wonderful chance to serve and be served and to draw closer to God. Some of my greatest friendships have come through relationships in Relief Society. Show more Show less
