Hi I'm Mariah

I grew up in Washington. I love to dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college student studying social work. I am leaving to serve an 18 month mission in Mexico in February. I am enjoying this time in my life in which I am making great friends and meeting so many amazing people from all over the world. I love dancing, hiking, good movies, and being goofy with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was baptized when I was 16 years old. I did not make this decision lightly, but I did make it in faith, and I am so glad that I did. I gained a knowledge of my Heavenly Fathers love for me and the fact that he knows me individually; he knows each and every one of us individually as we are all his children and he loves us and wants us to be happy. In fact he has created a beautiful and perfect plan for us to follow, it is called the Plan of Salvation or the Plan of Happiness, and through our loving Heavenly Father's plan and His son Jesus Christ and his atonement, we can experience true joy in this life! I am so grateful for the decision that I made to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, It has given me a true sense of who I am and where I am going.

How I live my faith

To me, faith is something that you live and do, so basically my faith is what makes me who I am. I have faith that the righteous choices I make will bring me peace and joy. One thing that I know always brings me joy in my life is serving others, there are so many opportunities everyday to help make someones day brighter. Jesus Christ taught us by example to serve and love others, I am striving to develop and cultivate this attribute in myself; this is how I live my faith.
