Hi I'm Montesa-Marie

I'm southern sweetheart, a Kentucky girl, I'm a Pre-Med student, a wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old, I'm a college student, wife, daughter, friend, and I am a Mormon. I am a African American Mormon! Unlike many I found the church, it did not find me. I have been a converted/baptized member of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints since December 19 2010. I can honestly say that the church & the gospel have changed my life, bettered my relationships with family members and friends, and saved my marriage. The heavenly father is the rock solid foundation of my life and I would be lost with out the faith I have found and my church family!

Why I am a Mormon

For a very long time I felt like there was something missing in my life, but in November of 2010 I fell across the church number. I remember the first time I stepped into the Latter Day Saints Church and I felt peace and comfort instantly so I continued to meet with the elders, and it honestly changed my life. They introduced me to the restored gospel of the heavenly father, and I passed it down to my husband whom then also started meeting with the missionaries after my baptism in December of 2010. He was baptized the following January. I know that the book of Mormon is true, and I know that the restored gospel is a blessing to each and every individual whom accepts it. Being a Mormon is not just a religion, its a lifestyle, and it has blessed me and my family tremendously.

How I live my faith

I have not yet received my calling, but I live my faith my doing missionary work with the sisters, and by spreading the word of the restored gospel to friends and family.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Mormons do not only help Mormons, they reach out to many people regularly. This is why we have missionaries, to go teach others about the restores gospel of Jesus Christ and help them grow closer with the Heavenly Father. Show more Show less
