Hi I'm Mary

I'm a Wife, Mother, lover of food, life, love, and all that is good and Holy. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from Brigham Young University in 2010 with a degree in Communication Disorders. Since then I have worked in several Special Education classrooms with kids ranging in ages 3 to 14 years old. Most recently I have worked as a Speech and Language Pathology Assistant and love it! However, I have to say that my new favorite job is that of Mommy to a beautiful baby boy! I love expressing myself creatively, through writing, crafts, or food. My favorite number is 13 and I love to eat dark chocolate with almonds and sea salt! I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have been converted to The Church of Jesus Christ Latter-day Saints. Although I was born into the LDS faith, it if my firm belief that one must discover for themselves that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. To do this I studied the scriptures and asked my Heavenly Father if this was true; and I know that it is. Living the Gospel brings me happiness and security. I know that as I do what is right that Heavenly Father will bless me and my family. I am grateful to know that I am a daughter of a living God and that Jesus Christ loves me so much that he was willing to come to this earth, live, and die so that I can return to my Heavenly Home.

How I live my faith

I live my faith each day through the simple things. I read the scriptures, pray, and try my best to serve other people. I believe that the gospel is really quite simple, it's about our daily choices and how they affect our eternal life. In addition, it's the basics of the gospel that help us grow closer to God.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are definitely Christians. The full name of our church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. One of our first and core beliefs is in God the Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. We believe that Christ was sent to this earth to live and set an example for us to follow. We also believe that Christ atoned for our sins so that we can be forgiven for our wrongdoings. Through Christ, His example, and His great gift we can return to our heavenly home.
