Hi I'm Mariah

Originially from Wisconsin, I love singing and music more than anything. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student, and I love music more than anything. I am a music major and hope share my love of music with others! Im really excited for the future, and yet scared to death! Some of my favorite things are: hanging out with my friends, being with family, singing, playing piano, guitar, ukulele, eating ice cream, drawing with sidewalk chalk, blowing bubbles, swinging on swings, and pretty much any other little-kid type thing you can think of! I love to laugh and joke around, and I absolutely hate math classes...Just your average gal!:)

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both Mormons, and I was raised as a member. However, through countless little experiences I KNOW that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on the earth:) There is not an exact moment I can pin point my knowing, but many times where I have felt the Spirit give me that wonderful feeling of knowledge. It's when I read my scriptures, or pray to my Heavenly Father, or sing a hymn. It also traces back to listening to speakers teach about the church, including our Prophet, Thomas S. Monson. I also feel the Spirit when I tell others that I know this church is true! That just proves it even more to me:)

How I live my faith

Right now I am a Relief Society teacher in my ward, which means I get to teach the lesson in the women's class on Sundays! I love it! I learn so much being able to teach, and hopefully I am able to help others somehow too. I am also a visiting teacher, meaning I get to help out and teach a couple of girls from my Relief Society, and make sure they are doing well. I am very excited to be able to serve and help others!

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is another set of scripture, along with the bible. It testifies of Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father and the love that they have for us. The Book of Mormon tells of Christ's teaching in the American continent. I LOVE The Book of Mormon. It helps me when I'm feeling down, gives me instructions when I'm feeling alone or lost in life, and shows me that I am loved. :) I PROMISE that The Book of Mormon is the true word of God. I'm so grateful to have it:) Show more Show less
