Hi I'm Maria

I'm a wife and mother of four. I love everything arts and am currently studying to be a Special Ed Teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an LDS family of 13 children, but my real conversion didn't happen until at age 18, after being away from my family for a couple years. I made some questionable decisions and experienced some very painful life lessons, but am so grateful for the values and teachings that were written on my heart, thanks to very loving, dedicated leaders and teachers every Sunday. I knew where to turn for happiness. It took a lot of effort, a river of tears, and some very hard changes, but I knew, without a doubt, that I had a Father in Heaven, who loved me, and wanted me to succeed and experience joy. I met the man of my dreams (cliche, I know, but he is the BEST!), we were sealed for time and all Eternity in the Billings Montana Temple, and we moved from Wyoming to Georgia for school. After graduation, we ended up with a job in Utah. We have four crazy, wonderful minions.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I love truth.

How I live my faith

I try to love people the way I think Christ would love them, recognizing we are all doing the best we can with what we have.
