Hi I'm Marissa

I'm artistic, crazy, and fun! I'm a crafter, I enjoy fine arts, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young adult trying to figure what to study in school! The problem is that I have so many interests and can't decide! I've dipped into theatre, music, art, make-up,design, and American Sign Language. I love it all! I'm also a major crafter! I love to sew, knit, and turn trash--clay, old clothes, or anything lying around my house--into treasure! I love to make things beautiful. My Mom taught me that. Speaking of my Mom....I have a great family! Its been broken a few times, but its was nothing a few band-aids (and love) couldn't fix. I have a wonderful mother, father, step-mother, step-father, and SIBLINGS. I have lots of those and they are great. My sisters and brother are some of my best friends! I am so blessed to have loving and supportive parents in my life. I am so excited, honored, and humbled to tell the world that I am called to serve a mission! My decision to go was not made in the spur of the moment. I thought, pondered, and prayed about it for a long time. I know that my Heavenly Father wants me to do this. He is always there for me and I am glad to have a chance to show my love for Him and His Son in the service of my fellow man.

Why I am a Mormon

Life isn't easy. I'm sure everyone has heard that before. However, life is do-able, especially when you have help, guidance, and love. I have those things. I'm a Mormon because I know that this church is true and that it is lead by God the Heavenly Father. I know that Heavenly Father loves me. I know He hears my prayers and watches over me. I also know that Christ died for the world... for my sins and everyone's. I have made mistakes and I am grateful for Christ's gift. I know that because of His sacrifice, someday I can return to Heavenly Father's loving arms. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet called by God in the 1800's and that Thomas Monson is a prophet called to serve today. I know that the Book of Mormon and the Bible read true. God blesses me, and as long as I try my best to do what's right then I will always have help, guidance, and love in my life.

How I live my faith

I know that I'm happiest when I'm doing what's right and matching my will to Heavenly Father's. I try to keep His commandments by reading the scriptures, praying to Him, and simply giving a smile to others. Everyday I want to be more like Christ and follow His ultimate example. I live my faith by singing praises in choir, being a friend and loving others, and spending time with my little sister.
