Hi I'm Marci

I'm living the dream. I have a wonderful husband, 4 fabulous kids, I make big clocks and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born into a wonderful LDS home, where the principals of the gospel were taught. We moved to Az when I was young when my father was transferred to Phoenix. My parents knew the location of our new home was important, so they chose Mesa, a small town where the temple was located. I had a wonderful childhood, and later attended BYU. I married a wonderful man in the Mesa temple and we have 4 fabulous children. My oldest son served in the Italy,Milan mission and my second boy is currently serving in the Michigan, Detroit mission. I've owned and operated a clock company that makes and sells large wall clocks on the internet for 8 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born into the church, I often wondered if what my parents were teaching me was the truth. Why did it really matter where we went to church, and what we believed? I found that as I grew, what I chose seemed to fall right in line with what my parents had taught me. I found that good consequences came from good choices. I didn't make many bad choices, but when I did, I endured natural consequences that were not so fun. So of course it was easier for me to choose what brought peace and comfort into my life. I always felt a strong sense of what was the right thing to do. As I grew older, I experienced some not so pleasant things, not because of bad choices, but because I was in the process of learning and growing, as we all are. I had to rely on the Savior, when I felt comfort from nobody else. I came to know Him and realized how much I needed His peace and guidance through that difficult time. He was there for me then, and He is there for me now. Every day, I am prompted and guided. Even though life throws difficult things my way sometimes, He always makes a way for me to not only survive the difficult times, but to learn and thrive through them. Trials make us stronger and more able to strengthen others. I am so grateful for the knowledge I have received, and that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. I am so grateful for revelation, and know that I can be led by God as He blesses my life and guides me so that He can bless others through me as well. He loves his children so much, and continually blesses us.

How I live my faith

As a Mom, I live my faith every day. It is important that my children witness the blessings of the gospel. I have served in many capacities in the church, all of which have contributed to my testimony and the desire to help others gain theirs. I think my favorite callings have been serving the youth, both working with the young children, and the teenage girls. The incredible strength in the young people in the world today is miraculous! I learn so much from them. I currently serve as a Secretary in the Women's organization which gives me the opportunity to better know the women in our area.
