Hi I'm Marsha

I'm a Mormon. I am a wife, mother of 8, grandmother of 21, I love to be involved in politics and family history.

About Me

We were busy raising our children in New Mexico in 1995 when the question of showing R rated movies came up in the local high school. My neighbor and I started a campaign to end that practice. It took a few years, but things did get better and I felt that we won that battle. In 2000 the county chairman from the Republican Party asked me to run for State Representative. I told him that I didn't know anything about politics. He said that it didn't matter what I knew, just what I believed, and could I stand up to what I believed? So I ran as "A Mom in the House" with the slogan "Is it True, Is it Right, Is it good for the Family?" I won the election and served in the New Mexico House of Representitives from 2000-02.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS Church and was taught the principles of the gospel all my life. I am grateful for that. Part of that training was to honestly look for the truth. I always felt free to question my religion (and I have) and find out for myself what was TRUE. I feel that I know that this is the TRUE church, FOR MYSELF. I don't believe because my parents did, or that anyone else does. I have studied, prayed and have come to know Christ and the scriptures in such a way that to deny it would be to lie. Living this religion has been the biggest blessing in my life.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving at the Mesa Regional Family History Center with my husband 3 days a week. I serve as LDS Family Services Agency Representative for our Stake. I am also on the United Families Arizona Board and active in my Legislative District.
