Hi I'm Maren Schultz!

I am a daughter and a friend, a pioneer, and I'm a Mormon convert.

About Me

I am proud to be a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints!! I am huge into music (all kinds). I love adventure and trying something new. I love to be around family and friends. I am also the only member in my family. I love this gospel and the joy and happiness it brings. I would never trade my life in the gospel for anything!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know the church is true. I have asked Heavenly Father many times and every time it has been confirmed to me that this is His true church. I haven't always had the easiest life. I have bounced around to different churches searching for a feeling of love, care, and truth. I have never felt love like I have in this church. Every time I read my scriptures I am reminded of His love for us and the truth He has shown us. I was brought to the church by a friend of mine and was baptized 4 months later on August 1, 2010. I love my Heavenly Father and I love His church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by indulging in the scriptures and putting them to work. When I lived on a college campus I strived to be an example for my non-member friends and peers. As a pioneer in my family, I am a walking example for them and I hope that I have let God shine through me. In my walk, I have recently decided to serve a mission for the church. I am serving in the Utah Provo Mission until 2014. I pray LOTS and read frequently. I try to actively be a part of my ward and in my mission!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Maren Schultz!
As a convert of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I struggled with knowing whether or not the church was true before I was baptized. There are several ways to know if the church is true or not: -God is the source of all truth. He loves us and wants to answer our questions. In James 1:5, we are encouraged, in times of lacking knowledge or wisdom, to pray to Heavenly Father and ask Him with a sincere heart, that we may recieve an answer to our question. We can know if the church is true by simply asking Heavenly Sincerely pray to your Heavenly Father. Ask Him if what you are learning is true. -Continue to study and give thoughtful consideration to what you are learning. -Listen with your heart for the sweet feelings of inspiration from the Holy Ghost, who will whisper the truth to your spirit and mind. -Follow God’s commandments so you can feel the influence of the Holy Ghost. You may have experienced feelings of peace, hope, comfort, or happiness as you’ve read. If so, you have already felt the Holy Ghost telling you that these things are true. Show more Show less
