Hi I'm Maryna

I'm Ukrainian. I'm young English teacher. i"m outdoors person and I'm a mormon

About Me

i love nature and music. I think these two things can describe what kind of person I am. i love kids, that's why i chose to be a teacher. i worked with kids different ages and i totally love it. one of my favorite things to do in class is to sing. i believe singing can bring so much joy,fun and even interest into the class. i love to be around different people, i love to make others happy, i love to hike, i love to laugh... i just love LIFE!

Why I am a Mormon

i was 14 when I've met missionaries. When i was a little kid my grandma taught me how to pray, and i always knew that there is God and that He hears me.i wasn't really searching for something, i thought i knew enough about God, but i didn't have any relationship with Him. I used to be an Russian orthodox, i didn't like to go to the church because nobody never told me what to do or the reason why i should go to church. As missionaries started teaching me i found all the answers that i was looking for. As they told me about God' plan for me it was familiar to me, seemed like i knew it before but forgot somehow. I prayed to know if this church was true and i didn't receive an answer right away. I'm very inpatient, but i continued to read and to pray. and one day as i finished praying i felt that what i was doing was right, i felt that this is what i have to do. It's hard to describe the feelings i had but as i felt i knew it was from God. i was a member of the church for 7 years and i know who i am and what is my purpose and it brings me happiness and hope as i live everyday

How I live my faith

Because the knowledge that i have brings me so much happiness i like to share it with others. that's why i decided to spend 18 moths and to serve the Lord and others around me.right now I'm serving as a missionary for the church in Ohio far away from my family and friends. every day i meet lots of people and i share with them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. i love it! i love to see how it makes others happy and how it helps them to feel God's love in their lives.
