Hi I'm Malorie

I love with all my heart. I've moved a lot. Family always stays. I follow through with what I say. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a determined college student. I love school. I love to learn. I believe in throwing myself into deep water, then learning how to swim. I believe in trying new things. In taking on things that challenge me, and that are completely new to me. I believe that the best way to learn how to do something is to just do it. I've worked in a bakery for two years, and have been decorating cakes for six years. I love being creative. I love making beautiful things. It is so important to me to “Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.” (Barbara Johnson). I love serving others and helping to brighten and life those around me. I am a smiler. I'm a self proclaimed runner, biker and adventurer. The outdoors is where I'm the happiest. I love nature and all the beauty around me. The greatest moments in life are those when you slow down enough to observe and take in the beauty of the people and creations around you.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS home, and I am so grateful for faithful and good parents. Although I was raised LDS, I still had to come to know for myself that the church was true. I could not tell you any singular instance where I instantly knew that the doctrines and principles of the restored gospel were true, but I can tell you that it is true. For me, it's been line upon line, precept upon precept. The first time I remember feeling the spirit touch my heart was when I watched my older brother get baptized when he was eight years old. I still can remember the overwhelming desire I had, as a seven year old girl to be baptized too. I felt the spirit witness to my young heart that this was good, and that this was true. A few years later, when I was just barely 12 years old, I was at a church girls camp for a week. The last night of camp, the girls and the leaders in my ward sat in a circle in our cabin and shared our testimonies to each other. It was such a powerful and special experience for me. As the older girls stood up and bore testament to me of what they knew to be true, I could feel the spirit bear witness to me that what they said was true. I knew that night that the church was true and that God loves me, for I am His daughter. Over the years, I've studied and prayed, and bore testament of the Lord Jesus Christ, in word and deed, and I know, with out any doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is indeed the Lords church upon the earth in our day. I know that we have a living prophet to lead and guide us in a world of confusion and conflict. There is no way for me to go back because I know, and what I know, I can not deny.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live what I believe in my daily life. I want to be like my Savior, Jesus Christ, and I strive to live in such a way that will lead me back to the presence of my Father in Heaven. I live my faith by the way I choose to live. By the way I talk about others, especially when they are not present. By the way I treat the people around me. By my consistent effort to help lift and serve others. I pray. I study the word of God. I honor my God by the way I live. I have promised to take upon me the name of Jesus Christ, and that makes ALL the difference to me. I do not want to do anything that will taint or defile His name, which He has blessed me to be able to bear. It's more that a good life style to me, it is who I am. I am a daughter of God, ad I try to live in a way that directly reflects His image in my countenance.
