Hi I'm Morian

I was born in the Philippines. I moved to America with my family when I was 8 years old. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I like to play sports and play guitar and the piano. I love the cold and hate the heat. I love to hangout with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. My dad was converted by a pair of missionaries a long time ago in the Philippines. I have always been a member. Although, I never always had faith and a testimony of the church. Growing up I never liked church. I only went because my parents made me and to see my friends. I never took church seriously until i was 17 years old. Almost 18. It was a day I will never forget. It was a priest and laurel temple trip that changed my life. My friends and I thought it was just going to be another temple trip and we were just going to go through the motions. Well it didn't happen like that this time. The spirit we felt in the temple was great..then after the temple we went across the street and had a testimony meeting in the church. I have never felt the spirit so strong in my life. It hit me like a brick. It truly changed my life for the better. It opened my eyes and I could see past what I could not see before. I realized there is more to life than what I was doing. The Lord has prepared a path for me to take and it was my destiny to take this path. It helped me realized why we are here on earth. Why I am here on earth. This life is the time to prepare to meet God(Alma 12:24). There is truly a marvelous work happening among us and it is our job to help the Lord fulfill his work and glory(D&C 4). That is why I have chosen to serve a mission and serve the Lord for 24 months with all my might, heart, and strength. I want to help bring souls unto Christ and help those people that are ready to come unto Christ. This gospel has brought so many blessings into my life and the happiness and the joy I feel I cannot begin to explain. I want to bring this to other people and help them find what I have found. I have been truly blessed in my life to have this church and this gospel in my life. It has helped me see the big picture clearer than I've ever seen it before. It has brought love and peace into my humbled heart. I am so proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I keep my faith by being active in church and having good friends who are great examples to me. I look forward to every testimony meeting because it helps strengthen my faith and my testimony. I strive to read the scriptures every night and to perform my priesthood duties and obey God's will and his commandments. Faith without works is dead(James 2: 17-18).
