Hi I'm Maryon

I love ice cream. I am an online P.E. teacher. I enjoy watching college sports and you guessed it...I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married over 12 years and love it...most of the time. I stay at home with our three fun and busy children. I went to college on an athletic scholarship as a softball pitcher. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Health and Physical Education. I taught middle school P.E. for a few years until I became a mother and wanted to stay home. I currently work from home developing and teaching online health and physical education courses. I enjoy sports, crafts, blogging, sewing and baking. I'm not really fabulous at any of them but I still enjoy being creative. My favorite thing in the whole world is laughing with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to be. I am a Mormon because I need to be. I want peace and happiness in my life and I have found that through the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that this is where I belong. I feel so blessed to have the knowledge that I am a Child of God and He knows and loves me.

How I live my faith

My faith determines who I am and who I will become. I try to live my faith in everything I do...in how I treat others, in how I dress, in how I speak, in what I do with my time. I know I am not perfect. My faith in the Atonement of Jesus Chris is what helps me to keep going when I fall short. I know that through our Savior I can be truly happy and He will help me reach my potential.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Maryon
We get to know our Heavenly Father just like we would anyone else. We MUST spend time with Him. We can't just 'hang out' with him like we would another person but we can spend time with Him other ways. We can speak directly to Him through prayer and feel His presence through the Holy Ghost. We can learn about Him through the scriptures and see the blessings that come into our lives. We can read the teaching of His prophets and seek to know what He wants for us. In order to know our Heavenly Father we MUST make the time and effort to do so. Show more Show less

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Maryon
We all make mistakes. We sin. It's part of the purpose of life to learn from our mistakes. We believe that no unclean can be in the presence of God so in order for us return to live with our Heavenly Father we need a Savior. Our Savior Jesus Chris is the ONLY perfect person that has walked the Earth. He sacrificed for our sins through the Atonement which it possible for everyone be cleansed from sin. Jesus Chris made this possible. Without Him it would not be possible to return to live with God again. Oh how grateful I am for Him and His love and sacrifice for ME! Show more Show less
