Hi I'm Marisa Hart

I am a student who is taking a break from school to serve a mission in Brazil. I love music and playing tennis. I'm a mormon :)

About Me

I am a college student majoring in Spanish and Portuguese. I love learning about different cultures and traveling. I love music: playing it, listening to it, etc. I play violin and guitar and I listen to a huge variety of music. I like jogging, playing tennis, and doing Pilates to stay in shape. I love spending time with my family and friends and serving others.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member all my life. I have visited churches that my friends attend and learned about what they believe, but that has only confirmed how much I know this church is true. There is no doubt in my mind that this is Christ's restored church on the earth today. The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me so happy and always makes me want to try to be a better person. I have no idea the kind of person I would be if I wasn't a Mormon. It makes me see the world in a great light and feel so happy to live the life I do. I have so many blessings in my life and I know that those blessings have to be from God.

How I live my faith

I always attend church on Sundays, which is really fulfilling and inspiring. It helps me prepare myself for another week. I am now serving a mission is Brazil, which is an amazing blessing. I get the chance to share with others the love that Christ has shown to me and my family by doing service and teaching people about Christ's gospel. I have taken several classes at college about the Bible and Book of Mormon that helped me to better understand Jesus' teachings and his gospel. The more I have studied these scriptures, the more I feel that I have a real, personal connection with my Savior, Jesus Christ. On a day to day basis, I try my best to live my life in a positive and selfless way. I try to serve others and treat others with kindness, even when it's not easy. It has truly changed my life as I've made an effort to be less selfless and do the things Christ would do.
