Hi I'm Marcie

I grew up in Las Vegas. I'm a 3rd grade teacher. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Las Vegas and went to college in Idaho and Utah. Now I teach 3rd grade in Utah and I love it!! I love kids and their enthusiasm for life. Being a teacher has truly changed my life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were introduced to the church by 2 missionaries who knocked on their door. They had just had their first child and felt very strongly that they should join the church. Their faith in what they knew to be true is what kept our family together through hard times. Even though I was raised being a Mormon, I still made the choice to embrace this faith as I was growing up. I knew that reading the Book of Mormon and the Bible brought me peace and happiness, and that following Mormon standards helped me to succeed in life. I studied hard in college to learn for myself about Jesus Christ, the Atonement, prophets and revelation. I also learned that following God's commandments would help me, and that the Lord would guide me through hard times if I tried to do what was right. I learned for myself that this truly is the right church. I feel closest to my Savior, Jesus Christ, when I am living what I know to be true - the doctrines that are taught in the Bible and Book of Mormon. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've discovered that I'm happiest when I live my faith by serving others. I also live my faith by helping out with the music at my church. I play the organ and piano. I love how beautiful music can bring the Spirit of God into our lives!
