Hi I'm Miriam

I'm a sociologist. I'm a wife to a great husband. I have a precious baby girl. I love to swim. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy swimming, running, eating ice cream, laughing, hanging out with friends and family, sociology, writing crazy blogs, going to the beach, Fresca, traveling, Spanish, and anything that makes me smile. I had the opportunity to serve a mission in Peru--a time that has blessed my life immeasurably. I recently graduated with my Master's degree in Sociology-- focusing specifically on immigration, family and education issues. I am married to the man of my dreams and have the cutest baby in the world. We recently moved to Klamath Falls, OR and are excited to start a new adventure here.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up the youngest of five in a family where my mom was Mormon and my dad was not. Each week I attended church with my mom and my siblings. I grew up loving church. I enjoyed singing songs about Jesus, I enjoyed the friends I made at church, I enjoyed the church potlucks and traditions. But, most importantly, I always was so happy to know that I have a Savior that loves me so much personally. Now that I have a family of my own, I am so grateful to know that we can be together forever. Every time I see a picture of the Savior, I point to it and tell my baby girl that because of Him, we can be together forever. I hope that she can grow up with the same happiness that I had--knowing that the Savior loves her so much personally.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a daily process. Every day I strive to remember that I am a follower of Christ. I try my hardest--and that's what I think our Father in Heaven cares about. I do my best to teach my young girl the importance of following our Savior. Though she is young, I believe that having a relationship with the Savior can bless her life more than anything else in the world. One of my favorite things about the Mormon church is that we constantly serve each other. With no paid clergy, everyone does their share and has their job (or "calling'') to fulfill in the church. My favorite calling was before my baby was born when my husband and I worked with the nursery children. Every week we were in charge of taking care of the 1.5 year olds while their parents went to the Sunday classes--and it was sure fun. We played games, ate snacks, blew bubbles, colored pictures, tried to teach the kids about Jesus, and came home exhausted! Overall, it was a great two hour weekly prep course in parenting. ;)
