Hi I'm Miranda Marsee

I'm a wife. I'm a student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Currently, I am studying Secondary English Education at BYU. I recently got married to the love of my life! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has truly changed my life for the better. I have never been happier in my life. I met the missionaries on campus at college in Indiana and was baptized in November of 2012. The gospel of Jesus Christ truly has changed my life in all areas. I have learned so much and grown closer to my Father in Heaven and my Savior through the restored gospel, and I know that I can continue to do so throughout the rest of my life if I have the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not looking for a new church when I met the missionaries, but after a lot of prayer, I was able to be baptized as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The first time I attended a church service, I felt a certain comfort that I had never experienced before and a joy that could not be hidden. Since my conversion, I have become much closer to my Savior Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. The joy I have felt since my baptism is immeasurable, and I know it will only get better from here. I know that this church is truly His church. I know that the gospel will bless lives and that each of us can know the truth through honest prayer. The opportunity I have to know Jesus Christ and His gospel and to share it with others is of incomparable importance to me.

How I live my faith

I try to spend my time doing things that will uplift others and help them to better understand the gospel. Although I am not perfect, I seek help from the Lord to do better everyday. I try my best to learn more about Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ through reading the scriptures and praying daily. I ask for opportunities to serve others around me and to be more like Him. I know that following Christ's example is the best way to live my faith each day.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Miranda Marsee
One way that I have really come to know my Heavenly Father is through prayer. Through this, we can communicate and show our love to Him, and He gives us the feelings of His love in return. Another way to know Him is through reading scriptures. By learning about who He is and then praying about it, we can have a relationship with Him. God will help you to know Him as you actively seek Him. Show more Show less
