Hi I'm Marisa

I am a registered dietitian, a wife, a mother, a New Yorker and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time mother who loves to cook, be with my family, be creative, and be active. I love to teach my son and I love to learn about the simple and precious things in life through him. I grew up in a great neighborhood and in a loving family. I also grew up playing sports and I am grateful for the life lessons I have learned playing team sports.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith is my life. The decisions I have made and the person I am today is because of my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ. I have known from a young age that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church, perfectly restored on earth today. I love the scriptures and the continued revealed word of God through our modern day prophets and apostles. Through the word of God I find peace, joy and happiness daily. I have learned much about life, even how to discern truth, through them. In Matthew 7:20 and 3 Nephi 14:20, it teaches us that "by their fruits ye shall know them." And the " fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith (Galatians 5:22). I have used these scriptures to make critical decisions in my life, even my membership in the Church. I have come to find that Jesus Christ is the only way to happiness, peace, joy, fulfillment and everything that is good, in this life and forever!

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith daily as I fulfill the responsibilities and callings in my life. I strive to be a better person each day. I live my faith by being a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend. I live my faith by sharing my happiness with others.
