Hi I'm merrilee

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Louisiana and have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I work as a pharmacy tech at Walgreens, and am married. I grew up in Louisiana and have been a Mormon all my life. My grandmother on my mom's side heard about the church and joined in 1917. I served a mission for the church from 1986 to 1988 in the Pennsylvania New Jersey Mission. I love to read and spend time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a third generation Mormon and was kept active in the church by my grandfather, uncle and some leaders in church. At some point i had to know for myself if the church was true and i found out. My mission really helped me gain a stronger testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and has given more meaning to my life. The gospel is true, the church of Christ has been restored, there is a prophet that speaks to us today, families can be together forever, and life is good. Just try for yourself the promise given in The Book of Mormon to read, ponder then pray and you will know for yourself the things i know to be true. My mother and father are gone now, but what a great joy to know that i will see them again.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher in Primary (an organization for children) and teach the 8 to 12 year olds. I try to be a good example to others through my work and volunteer work for the zoo and grandchildren's schools.
