Hi I'm Marilee Welsh

I'm a Mormon. I joined the Church at age 22 and now at 68 I'm serving a full time mission!

About Me

I am the single mom of one daughter and the grandmother of three beautiful children. I am retired and enjoying serving a mission for the Church. I will be home in a few months and looking forward to hanging out with my family, taking college classes, catching up with my friends. I enjoy reading, especially history, and working on family history. I love to spend my spare time indexing at FamilySearch.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known about God; I just didn't know the way to Him. The missionaries taught me about the plan of salvation and eternal life and how I could live with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ forever; everything they said made perfect sense and answered so many questions that I had - even questions i didn't know I had! I was baptized and have enjoyed the blessings of the Lord ever since. I have made many changes in my life through the Gospel that have brought me so much happiness and peace.

How I live my faith

My favorite callings in the Church have been with the youth. We have learned so much from each other about life and the need to make good choices in every aspect of life. I also enjoy teaching the women of the Church about Gospel principles.
