Hi I'm Mary

I have lived in Arizona all my life. I have 3 girls. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 3, all girls. I get to stay at home with them. I also do a couple of jobs from like tutoring, child care, and making scheduling calls. I LOVE to dance. I am not good at it, I just like to dance around the house. I love to eat too! Food makes me happy, a little too happy. I enjoy watching old movies and musicals. I also like to spend time with my family, both my immediate and extended family, I like to go jogging, bike riding, and go to the movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, meaning, my family were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When I was eight, I made the decision to be baptized. I am not sure that I always 100% believed in the Church, but I do know that it always made me happy. There was a time when I decided that I didn't need to be a faithful member of the church. I was lonely and sad. I have since learned that I am happy when I am praying, going to church, reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon. When I am doing these things, the world isnt as scary. I feel like I can not only survive this scary world, but I can be happy doing so!!!! It makes me feel like my girls are going to be ok. I am a Mormon because, simply put, it makes happy!

How I live my faith

I am very lucky to be able to work with the youth. I am constantly impressed by the teenagers and thier commitment to be good, it makes me want to be better. I also visit with a few other members of the church once a month. Twice a month I make a special treat and my family and I ponder on who needs it. We then deliver the treat to the family we feel could use the assurance that they are loved.
