Hi I'm Bailey Marin

I'm an artist. I'm a YouTuber. I'm on a mission in Peru Lima North. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an aspiring artist/writer who loves staying up late writing and filming silly, clean YouTube videos with my siblings and best friends! Performing has always come naturally to me, I come from and outgoing family, so making people laugh and find joy in life is a favorite hobby of mine. I love psychology and can see that perhaps I'll pursue that line of study. I'm also moderately obsessed with healthy diet and living, so maybe I'll study holistic medicine! At the end of the day, my dream is to join up with a non-profit organization and travel the world helping and love people!

Why I am a Mormon

I view the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a very practical, realistic way. I know that Christ lives and that His Atonement is everlasting, and thus I can access it's power at any time. I've not made serious transgressions in my past, so I felt that I didn't need the Atonement in my life. However, as I involved myself in life, I learned of the silent pains and disappointments and struggles, and I learned that the Atonement covers those, too! What peace filled my soul as I came closer to Christ and learned to truly follow Him. I know He lives and I know my Father in Heaven lives. I know this because the Holy Ghost has testified of it to me. That's all I mean when I say I view the Gospel in a "realistic" way: it is real. It is true. Christ truly lived, and died, and lives again. I hope to forever continue to strengthen my relationship with Him, my Heavenly Father, and my family that we may all be together forever. Not in a fantasy sense, but in a very real, true sense. When I felt within me that He lived and my family could truly be together forever, I felt so much joy and peace. And though the tempest still rages at times, "the waves and winds still know His voice that ruled them while He dwelt below!"

How I live my faith

I will so be serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Peru Lima North Mission and I couldn't be happier! I know the Lord has called me to Peru and though I don't yet know the people, I can feel that I already love them! I'm so excited and grateful that I will get to serve and love just as Jesus did.

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Bailey Marin
I have spent the majority of my life mistreating my body by not eating right and doing absolutely no exercise. Over the course of the past year, I have radically changed my diet and exercise routine with the use of pray and study to find in what ways my Heavenly Father would have me treat my body, and I have never been happier! Our bodies house our spirits. Our spirits are sacred and thus the "building" that houses that spirit would also be sacred and thus called a "temple." Temples are holy places where we come to worship God and learn of Him. Our bodies are no difference, we just take them with us, everywhere we go. I know personally how important it is to treat my body like the temple it is because I have seen the pain in not doing so and the joy in doing so! Show more Show less
