Hi I'm Mariana

I was born in Argentina. I'm the busy mom of 5 kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My life is really about being a mom. My husband calls my job the CEO of our household! Running kids to soccer, piano, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and church youth activities makes me feel akin to a taxi driver. I love to read (books on CD are my way to squeeze that love into my life), cook and swing on the back porch swing with my husband, enjoying a good sunset.

Why I am a Mormon

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. He has blessed the earth with His true gospel and I can't imagine trying to live my life without it. The gospel gives me hope. Understanding that I am a valued child of God and that I can repent of my mistakes and be clean fills me with joy. Teaching these truths to my children and helping them navigate through this world of shifting values that they are growing up in brings me peace, for they are the most precious things in my life. Knowing we can be together forever as a family is pure happiness.

How I live my faith

I teach a Sunday School class for adults and I love it! The best part is what everyone else brings to the lesson and the spirit of the class. I really consider myself a facilitator of gospel discussion and, as long as I am prepared, I'm amazed at what we learn from each other.
