Hi I'm Miriah Loosle Wixom

I am a Texan at heart! I am a Utah State Aggie! I am a Newlywed! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Senior at Utah State University going into Psychology. I want to become a school psychologist or a child psychologist. I am currently doing all online school because my husband works in Southern Utah as a teacher. I am the oldest of 5, with all brothers. Yes! I'm the only girl. But I love each of my brothers. They bring happiness into my life and we are all really close. I was born in Utah, lived for 2 years in Guam, and have lived in Texas since then. Moving was a hard, but I am so glad I had that opportunity. It also gave my family the chance to meet my brother, Sam. He's adopted, but he fits right in with us now. I got married in December 2015. My husband and I knew each other for over 3 years when we got married. Married life has been the best so far, I highly recommend it to everyone!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church, I was baptized at 8, but I wasn't fully converted for a while. Little experiences have helped in my conversion. When I moved to Guam at 10, I knew that the church was true to a point, because even half way across the world, they were teaching the same principals and ordinances. At this point I knew that Heavenly Father loved me and knew me personally. Just as He knows each and every person on the earth. But I wasn't so sure about the church as a whole. At 14, my stake did a musical about Christ and His mortal ministry called "Savior of the World". During the performance, even while I was singing, I couldn't help but cry tears of joy because I knew that Christ had suffered for my sins and that He loves me and knows me personally. This experience helped build my testimony even more. The main piece of the puzzle was still missing though. I still didn't know if God had restored His church yet. I took a challenge from my leaders to read the entire Book of Mormon, the first time I had done this by myself. I was 14 or 15 when this happened. As I was getting to the end, there is a promise in Moroni 10, to ask God. So I did. I knelt down and prayed. As I prayed I had this overwhelming feeling that the Book of Mormon was true. From that moment on I have never questioned whether or not the Book of Mormon is true. I'm a Mormon because I know it's true.

How I live my faith

My husband and I are living our faith by serving in the church. Right now we teaching the 8-9 year olds. They are a blast and help uplift us every Sunday. Although I am not perfect, I try to live my faith everyday by reading, studying, and pondering the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I also try to pray everyday.

Who are the Mormons?

Miriah Loosle Wixom
Mormon's are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is a world-wide church that's teachings are souly focused on our Savior Jesus Christ. We get the nickname "Mormon" from the Book of Mormon which we believe is scripture just as the Bible is. It is a record of the ancient people in the Americas and God's dealings with them. It shows that God is the same and loves all His children, everywhere. Show more Show less
