Hi I'm Marissa

I love my family & music. I'm amazed at the beauty of nature. I dislike spiders. Very much so. Oh, yeah... I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay at home mom & I absolutely LOVE my job. What could possibly be better than spending time with our two kids & helping them learn? I love music & was going to school for music education with a minor in theater. I met my husband online while going to school. I've been a Mormon my whole life, & was the first person to invite my husband to church. He was baptized a few months later. We were married the following year & were sealed in the San Diego Temple for time & all eternity.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have received my own personal testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true and that it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Christ our Savior atoned for us so that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that we have a living prophet to guide and direct us so that we can stay close to the Lord. I know that families can be together forever if we strive to strengthen home & family, make & keep sacred covenants, receive the ordinances of the temple, and endure to the end. I love my family so much & want to be with them forever, so I want to live my life the best I can so that it will be possible.

How I live my faith

I am currently a youth leader for all of the Young Women ages 12-17 in our ward. (A ward is basically a congregation assigned to you based off of where you live). I love my calling & all of the girls in our ward. I've learned a lot & hopefully they are too.
