Hi I'm Miriam

I am from and love Germany. I love baking. I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a beautiful little town in the black forest. I enjoy being outside and absorbing all the sunshine! I have a brother and a little half-sister who I both love very much. As probably everyone, I tend to be a little crazy from time to time. I love adventures and just exploring the nature and the world. The list of places I want to visit is very long because there is just so much to see and so many wonderful people to visit. I really love music, in every way! Probably I couldn't survive without it. Listening to talented people makes me happy. And I also enjoy singing or playing the piano, although I wasn't really given this talent:)

Why I am a Mormon

I had the chance to learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ in my childhood from my parents. This helped me to know what there is and to understand that there is a God and that he is my loving Heavenly Father and that he has a plan for his children. When the time came that I had to find out for myself what I want in live and whether I want to be a part of this church I knew that I would get the answer from God. I had so many experiences that showed me He really is there and he cares about me personally. My whole live he is preparing me to come back to him. When life turned out not to be easy and when pain and trials came I could always see that there is someone who knows exactly how I feel and that Christ has already been where I am. That gave me so much strength and hope to go on and to be strong in hard times because I knew I would never be alone. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings us happiness and that's why I'm a mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving as a missionary for the church in Salt Lake City where I have the chance to talk to people about our beliefs and help them find out for themselves. It is wonderful to give this time to the Lord and to see how the gospel changes people for the better. Before I came on my mission I had several callings in the church where I was able to learn more and to become more like Christ. I was a teacher for the children in our ward, which I enjoyed a lot. They taught me so much and was able to see why children are so precious to Christ. I'm always trying to be a good example and give my best which is something that Christ taught us.
