Hi I'm Molly

I play guitar. I love to sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Molly and I am originally from Arizona. I am a college student studying communications with an emphasis in news media. I am the oldest of 6 kids that live with my mom and step dad. I love to sing and play guitar, and occasionally, I love to hike, wakeboard, and spend time boating on the lake.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 3, my parents got divorced. As a three year old, it was devastating to not have a father present in the home, especially because he moved across the country, so I couldn't see him when I wanted to. My mom remarried when I was 5 to an amazing man who raised my sister and I as his own daughters. My step dad had a son from his first marriage after his first wife passed away, and together, my mom and step dad have 3 kids together. My mom and my step dad have stayed strong in the church all these years, but my birth dad fell away from the church shortly after the divorce. He was remarried when I was 9 to my step mom, who already had 2 kids of her own. Together they have 2 kids. My step mom has always been opposed to religion. She hated the missionaries and any talk of church whatsoever. Whenever my sister and I would go to visit my dad, step mom, and their kids, I could always feel a difference in how it felt to be there. I was so used to the Holy Ghost being present at home that I took it for granted, that is until I would travel to see the other side of my family and not have that feeling of peace there. When I was 18, I found out why my parents were divorced. My mom told me that my birth dad had struggled early on in their marriage with an addition to pornography, and after years of trying to make the marriage work, she had to break it off because my dad was no longer interested in being married to her. Finding this out broke my heart. I also learned that my dad and step mom were in the process of getting a divorce, which broke my heart further. Looking back at my life, everything good that has happened has come from the gospel and having a testimony of Jesus Christ. Looking back, it is obvious to me that the gospel keeps families together, and can repair broken families if there is faith. I am a Mormon because I know that through the gospel, God can heal our sorrows and bind families together.

How I live my faith

In the ward in my area, I serve as a supervisor over the women in my ward. I have to privilege of keeping track of the monthly visits that the women give to each other throughout the year and recording those visits.
