Hi I'm Marielle

I'm 17 years old. I've lived in Colorado my entire life. I am a national-level Irish Dancer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior in high school and I am focusing on attending college next fall. I love all types of dance, especially ballet and Irish dance. I play and teach the piano. I enjoy cooking and baking, and I hope to be a chef or own my own restaurant someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon home where I was taught about Jesus Christ from a very young age. My parents' example, prayer, studying the Bible and The Book of Mormon, and life experiences have all helped me to gain a strong testimony. Knowledge that God has a plan for me is such a blessing in my life and I know that everything happens for a reason. I know that Jesus Christ is my savior and reedemer and he took all of my sins upon him so that I can live with God again. I know that The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that reading and studying it has increased my faith and has helped me through many trials. My family is the most important thing to me and I know that by living the gospel and following the example of Jesus Christ, I will be able to live with them forever.

How I live my faith

I help to organize activities and events for the young women aged 12-18 in my congregation. Some activities are just for fun and some are service projects that are aimed to serve individual families, our church, or our community. I occasionally lead the music for young women meetings or play the piano. I also sing in the ward choir.
