Hi I'm Marie

I love spending time outside, being active, learning new things, and trying to make others happy! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi I'm Marie! I go to college at Brigham Young University and am majoring in Elementary Education. I don't know what grade I want to teach, all I know is that kids are hilarious and I love spending time with them. I love the outdoors and being active. If I could spend all my time on a river or lake I would happily do so. I love athletics and playing lacrosse. I'm passionate about learning about others and their individual passions. Having someone teach or show me what they are passionate about gets me excited. I love people and being able to learn about different individual's lives.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ. I grew up as a Mormon and was exposed to many strong spiritual experiences because of that. Experiences at girls camp, youth conferences, and seminary helped strengthen my belief in the Savior Jesus Christ. Those experiences helped me realize I was grateful to be a Mormon. Because of the environment I was raised in I learned and developed habits like daily scripture study, daily prayers, and going to church every Sunday. These habits helped me understand that not only was I grateful to be a Mormon, but I always wanted to be a Mormon. Studying my scriptures, praying, and going to church helped me deepen my understanding of who Jesus Christ was and what He has done for me. I learned the importance of following Him and becoming His disciple. I have chosen to make covenants with Heavenly Father as a way for me to show Him I love Him and also to show that I love and will follow His Son, Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's church here on earth. Heavenly Father loves me as well as all of His children and having the opportunity to belong to His church is a special blessing in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to serve those around me. I know that Heavenly Father uses each of us to help His children feel His love for them. Prophet Spencer W. Kimball once said, “God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs. Therefore, it is vital that we serve each other in the kingdom." I hope to live my faith by serving those around me and helping others feel Heavenly Father's love for them.
