Hi I'm Mary Lamphier

I'm a college student. I'm a daughter. I'm a missionary. I'm a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a Full Time mission in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Mission. I love the work that I am doing and the people that I am serving with and around. I grew up in Park City Utah. I loved every bit of my childhood. I was blessed to be raised in a beautiful place surrounded by amazing people. I have a great love and appreciation for the outdoors. And love to ski and be outdoors. I love to spend time with my friends and family. On my mission I have developed a love for Spanish! Yo encanta espanol con todo mi Corazon. Espero que una dia yo podria usar espanol mas en mi vida!! After my mission I plan to return to school at Brigham Young University and hope continue my education in their advertising major.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I choose to be. I have had the opportunity to learn of the gospel and how it can make such a difference in my life. I know what it is like to live without being active in the gospel. Because of that I have learned the true importance of following the plan our Heavenly Father has given us. I have a testimony that the church brings you more the just a religion. It brings you a family. And through the church I have met people who have influences my life for the better. I will always look up to them, this gospel has given me so much. I am a Mormon because I love the church and the happiness it brings to my life. By living by the following the example of Christ it gives me confidence and peace to make goals and reach for my dreams.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving for 18 months on a Mission in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I am living my faith by inviting others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repentance, baptism receiving the gift of the holy ghost and persevering to the end. I live my faith by trying to live as Christ did and following his example to those around me. I love to do service and along with my full time mission have had a chance to serve on humanitarian trips in other countries. I hope to show many other people the light of the gospel by showing them how the gospel of Jesus Christ can bless them and bring true happiness.
