Hi I'm Marissa

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and I am getting ready to go serve a mission. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, and baking.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an inactive LDS family. My dad had fallen away from the church and my mom was an inactive convert so I didn't get to attend church often. When I was eleven years old, my family got a visit from two missionaries who ended up teaching my sister and I and not too long after that we were both baptized. The difference between my life then and my life now is amazing. My whole family is currently active in church and my siblings and I have been able to be sealed to my parents in the temple. As a family we are so much closer and happier than I ever remember being. For me personally, the gospel has brought me so much joy and happiness. I have been able to develop a personal relationship with Christ and, as I have attended seminary and been involved in Young Women's, I have been able to develop a testimony of the gospel. I believe that this is the true gospel and though I am imperfect I strive to live it everyday.

How I live my faith

I have served as a nursery worker in my ward for almost a year now and I love being around such sweet spirits! I am also getting ready to serve an 18 month mission for the church.
