Hi I'm Maren Dunlop

I grew up in Oregon, I am currently serving a full-time mission in Mesa, Arizona, I love the Sunshine and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a people person! I love to spend all my time with my family, friends, serving, and visiting people. I love to be outside, whether it is playing sports or running, hiking, biking, or going on a picnic. I was previously attending BYU, studying recreational management. While on my mission I have truly seen miracles by the hand of the Lord in so many lives around me. There has been nothing more fulfilling in my life than sharing what I know to be true with all who will listen and seeing how the gospel changes lives for the better. I have been a member of the church for my whole life but I have come to know of its truth for myself by living it--keeping the commandments, following the prophet, reading the scriptures and praying to know if they are true, following the Holy ghost-- by doing these small things, my life has been blessed in every aspect. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me unending peace and JOY and that is why i love it so much!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a "Mormon," because of the direction it gives my life. I know that we are all children of God. This simple but extremely powerful truth shapes all the actions of my every day life. I want to be able to live with Him again. He has provided us with a plan that we are to come to this earth to receive a body and be tested to see if we will follow the Savior. He has given us commandments and if we are obedient, follow Him, and trust Him, than we will be happy. We will be able to return to live with Him again and be able to live with our families forever in a perfect state of happiness.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life as a disciple of Jesus Christ and I try to follow the Savior's example as best as I can. It is through the every day simple acts of kindness, love, and service that I live my faith. I am currently serving as a full time missionary and strive to exercise my faith every day as I put my trust in the Lord and do what He asks.
