Hi I'm M. J.

I'm a small town girl. I am a full time student and part time employee. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm going to college to study English and music most of the time and working the rest of the time. Being employed at the local grocery store isn't exactly prestigious, but I enjoy being able to get paid for helping other people. I've moved around a lot, but most of my time has been spent in small towns. I love to be in the Rocky Mountains, whether it's camping, hiking, or horseback riding. I enjoy doing almost anything as long as it's with my family or close friends. One of my dreams is to become an inspirational writer like C. S. Lewis, but in the meantime I keep busy with singing, cooking, crocheting, babysitting, gardening, serving, working, and learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by two wonderful parents that are consistent church goers, so I developed a habit of worship at a very young age. Since that time, being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has come to mean so much more to me. Through following the commandments of God, I have been able to grow so much closer to Him. Every day of my life I feel the blessings that come from doing the things that the living prophet and scriptural prophets of God ask me to do.

How I live my faith

My current job in my church is to be a teacher. On Sundays I spend an hour with twelve other people my age, helping them learn how to become more like Jesus Christ by using the scriptures and the words of modern-day prophets. I'm always a little nervous about getting up and taking the lead, but it's a very fulfilling experience and I love learning with the people I'm supposed to be teaching. Also, once a month I get to go with another woman and visit with other people in my church. The two of us share a lesson with those we are visiting, build friendships, and do what we can to uplift and serve. It's a program called visiting teaching and I love it.
