Hi I'm Mariah Smith

I am an Oregonian! I am a lover of elephants. I am a missionary in Knoxville, Tennessee. And darn right I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am an Oregonian! I love the smell of rain and dirt. I love climbing trees, swimming (lakes, rivers, oceans), and running through forests with deer. I love music, it's possibly the greatest thing on this earth next to hugs and pickles. I also enjoy long walks on the beach, elephants, and one-upping people.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it makes sense! God is our Father, and He wants us to be happy. It's taken a while to realize that. Being human and constantly making mistakes that distance me from God isn't easy! I haven't always been willing to follow what Heavenly Father asks and that doesn't bring any happiness! I've found that by living the standards of the Church, and really applying the Atonement of Christ in my life I can be happy. And that's what means the most to me!

How I live my faith

I'm a missionary!! Everyday I wake up and get teach teach people about how we have a loving Heavenly Father, there's a prophet who speaks to us for God, and there's a way we can live with our families forever!
