Hi I'm Marie

I'm a missionary in the California Long Beach mission and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a missionary in the California Long Beach mission. I love the work and the people. I enjoy watching movies (when I'm not on a mission, of course) and making music.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon. As a child I didn't really have a super strong testimony of my own, but as I've grown older it has grown with me. I'm not just a Mormon because I was born a Mormon anymore; I'm a Mormon because I believe it; because I know it to be true. This gospel has shaped my life more than anything else. Sometimes we fall, I know I have more than once, but because of Christ's atonement I've been able to get back up again. I love that this church provides answers about life that we don't often get the answers to. I have been provided with so man\y blessing from my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love him and I know that he lives and that he will visit this earth again and I want to be ready for that day.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the world today, temptation is constantly knocking at my front door. Being a teenager is hard with all the bad influences you face. I think the situations I'm exposed to provide me with choices that allow me to truly live my faith. Now, I have the opportunity to truly live my faith by going on a mission. This is a chance for me to dedicate myself to the Lord for 18 months and I can't think of a better way to live my faith than this.
