Hi I'm Merissa

I am a runner, a cook, 1/2 Italian, 1/2 Polish, a Nurse and a faithful wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

-I am a registered Nurse at a local hospital -I love to run, and can't go two days in a row without it - I'm most happy when others are happy around me

Why I am a Mormon

Years ago I learned that it is only from being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints that keeps the caos of everyday to a minimum in my life. I find peace and joy from being a Mormon. I know who I am, where I'm going, and why in the world I am here. This is why I'm a Mormon

How I live my faith

I work with the young women in the church once a year during girls camp. This calling last all year long and I have been doing this for five years now. Along with that I am the activity day director in my ward for the primary girls. I guess the Lord knows that I love to play and have fun because both of these callings are just that.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Merissa
Not all Mormons are full time missionaries. For the young men in the church it is required of them if they are willing and able to do so. For young women it is an option. I have served a full time mission and can say that anyone who can do it, whether male or female should serve a mission. It makes you stronger physically and spiritually and mentally. My whole life has been changed from that experience. Show more Show less
