Hi I'm Marie

I grew up in South Korea and Colorado Springs. Gotta love camping in the mountains! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am into a lot of things. I'm a black belt in taekwando, so of course I find sparring very enjoyable. I love reading, sketching, cooking, dancing, and hanging out with my friends and family. I'm into all kinds of music, but I've been listening to a lot of classical and some rock. I am attending BYU Hawaii as a Biochemistry major, and I'm feeling slightly smarter each day. My life is a Korean drama.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a convert to be more specific, and I was baptized on February 20, 2010. I found out about the LDS church through one of my best friends from junior high. My dad would cite wisdom from the bible time to time, but that wasn't enough. Entering high school, my family and I attended various churches, but nothing felt very concrete. After my best friend managed to convince me to attend her church, I felt slightly out of place. Over time, I began to see reasons for the various customs in the church. I started feeling more open, and it was like I was putting on a pair of glasses that I've needed for a long time. It didn't stop on the day of my baptism, and I'm still learning. I am a Mormon because it has become who I am.

How I live my faith

It's really easy to live my faith, considering how I'm attending an LDS school in Hawaii. Basically, my classmates and I encourage each other to attend church and extracurricular activities such as barbecues, volunteer services, dances, and more. We do visiting teaching, which is where women within each ward visit other women, teach them the monthly message, and make sure that everyone is doing fine. I pray everyday, read my scriptures, and just life my life as honest and true as possible.

What is faith?

Faith is the hope you have in things that cannot be directly seen. If you have faith in your friends, kids, spouse, parents, and siblings, you have hope for the bonds between you in them that can't be directly seen. This can also be seen as trust. Show more Show less
