Hi I'm Mauri

I'm a loving wife and a full time student, I love to cook and can't wait to raise a beautiful family of my own someday!

About Me

I love camping, cooking, traveling, board games, I have recently become a lover of biking and I love my family! I am a currently going to school and studying Early Childhood Development. Married to the man of my dreams and am excited for what the future has to offer us! I have to younger brothers, who I can always be my goofy self with, two parents who love me and are currently housing my husband and I (if that isn't love, then I don't know what is!) :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member, but every Mormon has a conversion story.... Mine was from a few years ago, being with my Dad. I was having a hard time and didn't have many friends when I moved. I realized that through praying and reading my scriptures, I became happier. I made more friends and changed completely. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that our church is true.

How I live my faith

Last year, I was able to do some genealogy for my church calling. I was able to read the old records and put them into neater form. It was truly addicting, as all genealogy is. I love to go to the temple and serve there. A few months ago, my husband and I taught the youth in our ward the scriptures and the many stories in them, which is such a wonderful calling. The youth of the ward were all so attentive and loved to learn. I am a visiting teacher, which is someone who goes to a few sisters homes in the ward and visits them, share a message and just chat, as us ladies love to do.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

God has called prophets to lead His Church in our day, just as He did anciently. The current prophet and President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Thomas S. Monson. He is assisted by two counselors—Henry B. Eyring and Dieter F. Uctdorf. Together, they make up the First Presidency of the Church (much like Peter, James, and John after Christ’s death). All members of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are apostles and prophets. The current Apostles are: Boyd K. Packer L. Tom Perry Russell M. Nelson Dallin H. Oaks M. Russell Ballard Richard G. Scott Robert D. Hales Jeffrey R. Holland David A. Bednar Quentin L. Cook D. Todd Christofferson Neil L. Andersen Show more Show less
