Hi I'm Marie

I grew up in Salt Lake City Utah. I am a data entry operator and a piano teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of five children. I have devoted my life to the raising of my children. I love to follow them around to their various activities. I am happy when they are and I am sad when they are. I love to play the piano. I teach piano lessons and play the piano for other people to sing often. I also play the Organ, flute and a little guitar. I enjoy doing crafts. When I have spare time I enjoy creating new things for my home. I also really enjoy genealogy. It's addictive!! I work part time doing data entry. It just helps pay the bills. I love the Holidays and being with my family!! It's fun to decorate and use the Holiday as an excuse to get together with the family! :D

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon. I love this Church. It has been an amazing help to me in raising my children. All of it's teachings are good. It's a good clean lifestyle. It has provided opportunities for my children to serve other people. It helps me to teach my children to be honest, trustworthy, clean and virtuous and many many other positive and good qualities. For me though, it has helped me to be a better person. I am encouraged weekly to try to do better to be better. I have the supreme example before me, The Savior Jesus Christ! Who better to follow and emulate than him. When I feel low I know that I can turn to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ who are always there for me. I have the scriptures to help me along like a road map. I can pray and feel the love of my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. We have prophets to help as well. I know the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are good and true. I believe there is a God in heaven watching out for us and Loving us. I believe that Jesus Christ is MY Savior. That he died that I might live again and that he made it possible for me to be forgiven of my mistakes and to one day live with My Heavenly Father again. I believe The Bible to be the word of God and I believe the Book of Mormon is another testifier of Jesus Christ. I believe this Church is the restored Church of Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith was the prophet sent to help bring the Savior's Church back to the earth. My family and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints mean everything to me. There is nothing else of great importance in my life.

How I live my faith

I am part of an organization called "Relief Society". We try to help the families in our area when they have needs. Such as giving meals when babies are born, food for funerals, making quilts for humanitarian aid and so forth. Monthly we visit other women in our area to see how they are doing, this monthly visit is called Visiting Teaching. We gather weekly to learn together each Sunday. It's wonderful to belong to such a great organization that's goals are to help others.
