Hi I'm Marion

I recently retired after teaching for the Mormon Church for 35 years, and, of course, I am a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have five children and 13 grandchildren. We have a 36-year-old daughter still living with us, because she was born with severe birth defects. Our faith in God is a great help for us in the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Why I am a Mormon

While I grew up in a Mormon family, I came to the point that I had to know for myself, and not simply follow my parents blindly. The Book of Mormon became the foundation for my faith, and continues to enlighten my life, as does the Bible. My years of teaching both books have strengthened my understanding that God's word is here on earth to bless our lives.

How I live my faith

Though I have retired as an employed teacher for the Church, I have the blessing of teaching adult Sunday school each week. Additionally, I work with the missionaries in our area, helping those who are here learning and sharing the gospel in Spanish. I learned Spanish as a young missionary in Chile, and I appreciate the opportunity to share what I have learned to help others.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It is a record of God's dealings with the ancient inhabitants of the Americas and contains, as does the Bible, the fulness of the everlasting gospel. Show more Show less
