Hi I'm Mari Gillette

I grew up in Oregon. I'm a mom of two wonderful boys and a wife of a wildlife Biologist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mother of 2 wonderful boys. I'm a stay at home mom which I love! I love being able to help my children grow and learn. I have a hard working, spiritual giant, awesome father, as my husband. I enjoy to travel and getting to know new people. I love to have friends over for dinner and games ( It must be the Latina in me).

Why I am a Mormon

At 17, I decided to go to the Mormon church (I had been raised Catholic all my life). I went to church for 6 months then I starting taking the discussions. On July 5, 2000 I was baptized. My family wasn't to happy about my decision. It took me a few years to fully depend on my own testimony and not rely on someone else's. In 2005 I was married in the Boise Idaho Temple.

How I live my faith

I try to have prayer with my children and husband daily. Sometimes it can be difficult. I teach 10 & 11 year old's. It 's a great group of girls. I also try to provide meals for moms with new babies.
