Hi I'm Marissa Kissner

I'm a missionary in the best mission ever. I love to work hard, play hard, and pray hard. I am quite the goof. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi, my name is Marissa, but most people call me Missy, or at the moment, Sister Kissner. I love being a missionary. It's the best thing you will ever do in your life and I encourage all to come and join in on the fun and hard work. I am a daughter of the best mom in the world! She is my friend, my support, and usually my fortune teller. She always seems to know what I am gonna do before I do it. At home I love to be with my family, hanging out with my friends, roasting marshmallows, watching movies, being adventurous, dancing, playing tennis, and so much more. I love to be outdoors during the summer and see all the wonderful creations Heavenly Father created for me! It amazes me every time. I love to be busy and you can usually find me at work, although I think that is more of a habit than a passion. I always wanted to be an Attorney but the Lord is pulling me in different directions so we will see what I become when the time comes. I love to have fun, laugh, and smile all the time! PACE- positive attitude changes everything is one of my favorite mottos. Food is the best way to make friends and I often like to try new foods and places. Prayer has become a personal favorite to me and I enjoy talking with my Heavenly Father often. If your praying knees aren't hurting then you aren't calling home enough.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness I receive from being one. I have learned over time that when I am participating in the church and following its teachings, I am happy. The church brings a spirit into our lives that comforts us when we need comfort and helps us to make the right decisions in our lives. This spirit and the help that it gives us brings happiness to myself and others around me. I am also a Mormon because I love my family so much that I want to live with them for eternity. This gospel gives us that oportunity if we do his work and strive to be Christ-like at all times. I love this Gospel!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. I have had several opportunities for service to others through school, work, a mission, and my church callings. I enjoy serving and continue to serve everyday. I also live my faith by being a disciple of Christ. Which means his follower. But in my life this means, striving to be like him at all times and to love and serve others just as he would. Christ is the ultamate example to me in my life.
