Hi I'm Mollie

I was raised all over the US. I love cooking, gardening, and learning. I am a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am curious by nature. I enjoy gardening, science, and learning in general. Lots of things fascinate me. I'm especially fond of constructing things with my hands whether it be a painting, helping to build a house, or working in the garden with my hands in the mud; it matters little. Knowing that I'm creating enlightens and empowers me. Music to me is more than beautiful. It is essential. One my earliest memories involves me playing with cars under the piano while my mother practiced ""Clair de Lune." I sang long before I could string together words into a sentence. I do not have a beautiful voice, but I play the piano and often join choirs- especially for Christmas. I am currently attending college studying the brain and nervous system. I hope that one day I may be a physical therapist but, that may change. I am open to opportunity and change.

Why I am a Mormon

There is more to a person than a body. This is a truth I knew from a very young age. It seeded my belief in God. There is a part of every person that is not body. This part loves, trusts, and is sometimes hurt. This part is spirit. And, it is from God. My next truth came to me in prayer. At one point in my life, I felt very lonely and very sad. I prayed to God for comfort. In that prayer, God told me in my heart that he loved me –that he loved me completely. After the prayer, I felt so full of joy that I laughed and danced. I felt full of light and air and happiness. From this prayer, I learned the truth that God loves all of his children beautifully, perfectly, always. Families are sacred and meant to be. Of all of the wonderful things that God has created, families can be the strongest. My family is peace, safety, comfort, security, love, and many other things. We are stronger together and our bond is more than just the individuals. We teach each other and learn from each other. When one is in need, we all are in need. We hurt as one and love as one. Our spirits and our hearts reach out for each other, and we are bound together no matter the distance- even after death. When we are sealed to one another in the temple, this is the bond that is being sealed. I believe it, because my heart tells me it is true. The scriptures especially the Book of Mormon are true. These books are true, because of the many truths they teach. I have mentioned only a few of the truths that I have learned, and I have many more to learn. Just as there is more than a prayer than speaking to yourself, there is more to the scriptures than the words that are written. I have lived these words that I share with you. I believe them and this is my testimony of the Church of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

Once a month, I teach a lesson to the women at my church. I greatly enjoy it. It is a blessing to serve them. The women at my church building are all friends of mine, and I know them all by name. We enjoy sharing ideas, thoughts, feelings, and experiences with each other. We look out for one another helping when we can if someone feels lonely, sad, distressed, or discouraged. In our group of women, everyone is assigned a partner. With this partner we visit 2 to 3 other people of our group every month. We try not to miss anyone. This way over time we get to know everyone on a face-to-face basis. It is more personal. I participate in a choir with some of the other men and women in my church. We celebrate Christ and show our gratitude to him through music. Every week we practice, and then sing to the rest of the church for holidays such as Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas. On occasion, all of us from church will get together to fill a need. Sometimes, it is helping a widow with her house. Sometimes, it is cleaning up trash from the community. Sometimes, it making meals for someone who has just had a baby. Whatever the case may be, we keep our eyes, ears, and hearts open for opportunities to help those who need help.
