Hi I'm Marissa

I am a mother expecting my third. I drive a mini-van even though I said I never would. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern Idaho with 5 other siblings. My dad taught me to love the great outdoors, and my persistent mom kept me going on the piano and violin. I thought the only thing that mattered was racing to the mountain to snowboard in the winter, and getting the darkest tan while boating on the snake river during the summer. Now, 10 years later, I am a full-time mommy, happily married to my best friend and expecting our third rambunctious child. I enjoy gardening, learning about every plant that can survive in Idaho, and chasing around my two toddlers.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is true. I have witnessed the promised blessings from our Heavenly Father as we strive to live and follow the example of Jesus Christ. I have read the Book of Mormon multiple times and have received the conformation that it is true. More than anything, I have been sealed to my husband in the temple and know that our little family can be together forever if we live righteously.

How I live my faith

I attend church regularly with my husband and children. Even though we want to leave our kids at home each Sunday, we know that they can feel Heavenly Father's love for them and understand for themselves the truthfulness of the church as they grow. I am serving as a counselor in the Primary for the children. I love teaching them the basic and clear teachings from the scriptures and words we receive from a true and living prophet.
