Hi I'm Maria

I like being active and happy! I love the Outdoors, helping others, and I love My Savior. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in a little rural town. It was great growing up and working on the family farm. I have 5 siblings and 4 cousins that my family took in! They are great, we are one big great family! I graduated with my Bachelors in Social Work and I am currently working on my Masters. I as well have a huge desire to serve my God and Lord! So I went on a mission to the Colorado Denver North Mission! It was the best ever!!! I truly loved it. Every moment was directed to my Lord and it was great just to help others! I know being a missionary for Jesus Christ was a very happy moment in my life, and much more came after!

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up as a Mormon, but my parents really wanted me to find out for my self if this is truly what I believed in. Which I am very grateful for! I prayed night and day and I read the Book of Mormon night and day to find out for myself if the Book of Mormon was true and as well this church. When I was around 13 I remember finishing the Book of Mormon all the way and got on my knees and prayed for the truth. I received a peculiar answer. I felt strongly that I already know and that I knew the answer to that question for some time now. And I did! I know for a fact that the Book of Mormon is another testament that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior! He is our Redeemer, He sacrificed Himself for each and everyone of us and He wants Us to live with Him and our Heavenly Father, God, once again! This is why I am a Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and if this is true than Joseph Smith truly did translate the Book of Mormon through divine power on high (for no mortal man could publish a holy book unless directed from Christ), and if this be true than this Church is the true Church of Jesus Christ who is our Savior and Redeemer! The Book of Mormon is true, the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ is true! It Brings so much Happiness and Joy in my life that never ends and never will! :) I know that Our Savior Loves all of us!

How I live my faith

One of the things that I discovered in my life is that I love, Love! I love the Word, I love the meaning of love, I love to love, and I love to feel loved! I've had moments in my life, like most people do, when I do not feel loved or wanted at all! It is really the worst feeling ever! To not feel loved, wanted, needed, accepted, alone, or even appreciated. Negative Emotions can cut deeper than physical wounds, at least I think so. And why am I mentioning this? Well I'm getting there :D Since I know how terrible and lonely this can feel, I never want to have others experience these feelings when I can help it. I want others too feel the amazing feelings of Love, acceptance, being wanted, needed, and feeling at peace, they way the Savior can make us feel! For I Know that our God Loves Us, and Cherishes us! We are So Dear to Him! Our Savior Loves and Cares for Us! He IS Always There!!! He Never will Leave Us alone! If I can help just one Feel this kind of Love that I feel from my Savior and my God, and to truly know this to be true! It would make me very Happy! and Soo joyful beyond believe! Because everyone is that special, we all should feel this way. And I want to share this to everyone! To reach out to the Hands that hang down and lift the feeble knees of those that are in despair. For I know, that Christ knows, how you are feeling, and I know He wants more for you! He Loves you! And I do too! Even though I probably never met you, or never will in this life.... :D But I do. I want to be there for others and I want to let others know that they are Wanted, needed and loved! For what if tomorrow never comes, and I never got to say it, or show it?
