Hi I'm Mari

I'm a third-culture kid. I'm an theatre aficionado and a dreamer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in the United States but grew up in China. I've had the opportunity to explore all kinds of amazing countries in Asia and have come to love learning about, and experiencing first-hand, other cultures. I am almost done with my undergraduate degree in theatre and recently completed an internship with a renowned theatre company. I love nature and hiking, exploring interesting cities, eating and making delicious food, spending time with my crazy family, and participating in and appreciating the arts (especially theatre).

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ gives me hope. I know that if I live according to Christ's teachings that wonderful blessings lie in store. I know that after I die I will continue to live. I know that I will get to be with the people I love not only for time, but also for eternity. All of those beliefs are great, but the reason why I am a Mormon and not a Christian of some other faith is because I have prayed and I know that this is Christ's church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing my faith! In just a few days I will be leaving to serve an 18-month full-time proselyting mission where I will invite others to come unto Christ by teaching them about our church and its doctrines. I also live my faith by serving the people around me and doing my best to bring happiness to their lives. The more I learn of Christ and follow Christ by living according to His commandments and teachings, the better I am able to bless the lives of the people around me.
