Hi I'm Marilee

I'm a Mom of two boys. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have been married for 7 years and we have two crazy, wonderful boys. I love every bit of sunshine we get in the Northwest and we spend a lot of time at parks. When I'm not playing with my boys I love to run and I dabble in all kinds of crafts.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in their teenage years and recognized the light and truth and joy that came from it's teachings. They raised my siblings and I in a wonderful home centered around the teachings of Jesus Christ. I didn't always appreciate their efforts, but now as a mother and wife I am so grateful for my faith in Jesus Christ and my knowledge and testimony that families can be together forever. I know that the Book of Mormon was inspired of God and teaches us additional truths about Jesus Christ and God's plan for all of us, His children. I know that God continues to love and guide His children today through modern-day prophets.

How I live my faith

I am very involved in our women's group, called the Relief Society. We try very hard to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of the women and families in our ward family and community. I have been in charge of planning and organizing our monthly activities and as someone who enjoys planning parties and events, this has been a lot of fun for me. We like to have socials, holiday dinners, cooking classes, service projects, parenting panels, etc. It's a wonderful place to meet other women from all different backgrounds and stages of life, but all striving to follow Christ and be the best that we can be.
