Hi I'm Mariah

I'm a college student. I love to help people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my life! I have a wonderful husband and a great family. I am a college student, it's wonderful to be around so many people who have a desire to learn like I do. I have been a swimmer all my life, I love the water, when I graduate I want to become a high school swim coach.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. Some may think that since I was raised in the church I didn't have the opportunity to make my own choice, however, I made my own decision. I chose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know from the power of God that it is true. When I was younger I use to wonder and wait for some miraculous event to happen to me regarding the truth of the church, but it is by small and simple things that great things are brought to pass. Once I decided that the church is true I felt the spirit so strong reassuring me that it I was correct. Without the gospel in my life I would be such a different person, I would not know about my Savior Jesus Christ, or be married to my soul mate for all eternity. Heavenly Fathers church made me who I am today and who I continue to be in the future.

How I live my faith

I am a active member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In my ward I am on the activities committee. My job is to come up with activities the women in the ward can participate in that bring them together as well as strengthen any area in their life, including spirituality. I try to help out as much as I can with youth in my community as well as in my ward. I love teaching little children about God because they understand better then most adults! They are humble and ready to be taught the truth. The youth really are the future of the world that is why I devote as mu time to them as I can.

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Many think that Mormons are a cult because the church is not a branch of the Protestant or Catholic religion. I think labels like that are made out of fear and misunderstanding than truth. If people really knew the truth of out religion then they would not call our faith a cult. Specially because the Mormon church and other christian churches are founded on the same thing.
