Hi I'm Molly!

I'm a violinist, Chinese-speaker, and New Englander. I study History and Literature and love to cook. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student preparing to serve a full-time mission for the church in Ukraine! In the meantime, I am enjoying playing violin in my college orchestra, practicing with the varsity sailing team, taking classes on everything from Leonardo da Vinci to Chinese Politics, and snuggling with my friends. I have traveled to Beijing several times and loved exploring the city and enhancing my language skills (I studied Mandarin for several years). I am interested in practically EVERYTYHING and love to read anything from Russian Lit to the news. While in high school, I played in a string quartet (violin!) with a few of my best friends, swam for my high school team, and spent lots of time with my family - whom I adore! I love to spend time outside - hiking, skiing, kayaking, you name it. Life is good!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this church teaches the principles whereby we can not only build the closest possible relationship with our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ, but also discover the greatest happiness in this life. I still don't know everything, but the only way I can come to more completely understand the gospel is by continuing to learn and study and grow in the ways in which God wants me to. I am a Mormon because I know that there is more to my existence than what I can physically hear, see, taste, smell, or touch. I have felt the Spirit's influence in my life. Whatever else may challenge my faith, I cannot deny that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to interact with everyone around with me in the same way that Jesus would. I also read the Book of Mormon every day and endeavor to know God's will in my life. I am involved with the group of LDS students on my college campus, and so much appreciate the ways in which they strengthen my faith. The nearby singles ward I attend is wonderfully energetic and full of inspiring people with interesting perspectives and strong testimonies of Jesus Christ. I am constantly working to improve myself however I can (intellectually, spiritually, morally) - and THAT, I often think, is the most important way in which I live my faith: by believing that through Christ's atonement positive change is always possible.
