Hi I'm Mary!

I am a college student, a book lover, a musician, and a soon-to-be full-time missionary, and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I was born and raised in Washington state. I am studying elementary education at Brigham Young University and have wanted to be a teacher my whole life. I am the oldest of 4 kids and I love spending time with family! I play the piano and the violin and have had so many great opportunities to bless the lives of others through music. I also enjoy singing and music theater. I love to read books, play games, and watch movies. I am a huge sports fan and love watching any kind of game, especially live. I love going on adventures and traveling, which includes checking items off my bucket list. I cannot wait to serve a mission for the church in Alabama for the next 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because it brings so much joy and happiness to my life. I know that I have a purpose on this earth and that if I follow Jesus Christ, I will be able to live with my Father in Heaven again. The message of the gospel and the words in the scriptures bring knowledge and comfort that I would be lost without. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and that He has a plan for me and that if I put my trust in Him, anything is possible. I know that our Savior was the perfect example and that He died so each of us might live again. I know that families can be together forever and I'm so grateful for that. The way that I choose to live my life brings peace and happiness that cannot be found through anything else in this world other than the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following my Savior, Jesus Christ. I do my best to grow closer to Him by reading my scriptures and praying daily. I surround myself with those who help to uplift me and make me a better person and by those who share the same standards as me. I attend church weekly and fulfill the responsibilities I have there. For the next 18 months, I will be live my faith by serving as a missionary and teaching the gospel.
