Hi I'm Marieke

I am a German. I live in California. I study Art. I love cooking and eating. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Germany but moved to the United States five years ago with my parents and my sister. So California is home now. I graduated form Highschool in San Diego and have studied Illustration for two years now. I love art, dancing, eating, cooking, surfing, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that already had the Gospel. Our whole life has been a great adventure and I am so glad that we had Heavenly Father to guide us. Through the Gospel and the help of our Father in Heaven we were able to make it through even the darkest times. It is incredible to me how the knowlege that he is there for us and that everything will be good in the end has given us peace and joy even when it didn't look like things would turn out good. I was able to see so many miracles in my life and have gotten to know my Heavenly Father so much more personal. I can't put into words hwo greatful I am to have his guidance in my life! There is a joy and hope and peace that the Gospel brings that can not be found anywhere else in the world. I am looking forward to sharing this joy with others!

How I live my faith

Over the years I was a teacher for the 7 year olds, a teacher for the young women and now I am a missionary. :)

How can I know Mormonism is true?

God himself is the answer to all truth, so I guess the best thing to do would be to ask him. Pray and ask him if this is true. If you really sincerely want an answer and wait and listen for one then he WILL answer! He will answer you prayers through the Holy Ghost, who speaks to us through our feelings and emotions. When I feel the Holy Ghost my heart feel like it is overflowing, I feel light and happy and at peace. He speaks a little diffrent to everyone, but he speaks only through the best feelings. Read Moroni 10:4-5 in the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I know that this is true and I have recieved answers through the Holy Ghost and it is the greatest blessing in my life!

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Well, I know that we are all his children and that he loves us SO much! His work and his glory is to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man- or in other words, he spends 100% of his time to help us be happy. He knows us individually, he listens to our prayers and answers them. He wants to hear from us, be part of our lives and help us through our day to day activities. Show more Show less
