Hi I'm Mary Petramalo

Man, life is just SO GOOD. I'm living life with a purpose. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I LOVE my family! I am one of ten kids and love every minute of it. Currently, i am a senior at BYU-Idaho studying visual communication, however, I have been called on a mission to serve in the Texas McAllen mission, Spanish speaking. I will get to go to the Mexico MTC!!! I LOVE LIFE. I love to swing. i love to cook and eat yummy food. i love the stars. i love to be outside. i love to weed-eat. i love traveling. I love the quiet moments. i love sunsets. I love chocolate. I love walks. i love this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of what I know. I know what I know, because of experience. I am a Mormon because of the principles and doctrines that are taught through scripture and modern day prophets. I know that I am being guided by prophet, seers, and revelators who are called of God. They hold the keys of the restored Priesthood. I am a Mormon because I know and have experienced the redeeming power of the Atonement. I have experienced the JOY and HAPPINESS that this gospel brings!!! I am so eternally grateful for the peace and drive that this gospel gives me personally. Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Redeemer. I stand all amazed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father. I live my faith by doing the little things in life. I love it when I have an opportunity to serve others. I feel like one of the ways I can draw closer to my Savior is by trying to be like Him, and that is how He spent His time on this earth. He served all of those around Him. I talk with my Father in heaven through prayer. He hears and answers my prayers. I know this because I have seen the effects in my life. As I live the commandments and keep my life in accordance with the gospel, and qualify myself for the accompaniment of the Spirit, I am inspired as to how I can change my life and progress into what Heavenly Father wants me to become. My parents have instilled in me a love to work and serve. Re-reading General Conference talks and feasting out of the scriptures continues to fortify my faith. I love this gospel.
