Hi I'm Marsha Holmes

I'm an adrenaline junkie, a teacher, a mother of 3 and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

First and foremost, I am a wife and mother of three. Being a mom of teenagers keeps me quite busy but I am also a school teacher and I teach private singing lessons on the side. I love the arts both performing and attending! I've never met a musical I didn't like and finally realized my dream this year of attending three shows on broadway in New York City! I am also a bit of an adrenaline junkie. I love skydiving, running marathons, amusement park rides (the scarier the better) and trying new things. I've been accomplishing the things on my "bucket list" and next up is scuba diving and para-sailing. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I consider myself fortunate to have been born and brought up in the LDS Faith. I was baptized when I was 8-years old. However, once I became a teenager my parents encouraged me to choose for myself whether or not I attended church. I've always had a strong sense of truthfulness about the gospel but it was in my adulthood when I truly gained my strongest testimony. I intensely studied the Book of Mormon and received my own personal witness of it's truthfulness. Through my lifes experiences I have learned to rely on the Lord and his beautiful gift of the atonement and I have felt his love in my life!

How I live my faith

I am a missionary mom! What this means is that my oldest son is serving a mission for our church for 2 years. He is gone serving the Lord and teaching others of the truthfulness of this Gospel and my husband and I support him financially and otherwise. I also serve the youth in our ward by planning and executing activities with them bi-weekly. I also participate in our choir and visit several ladies once a month to see if their general needs are being met and just to be their friend. I love to serve! It makes me feel so great inside and brings our family so many blessings.
