Hi I'm Marissa Leavitt

Mormon, born and raised.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in southern Nevada and moved to an even smaller town in southern Utah. I am the second oldest of 6 children. I'm your typical small town girl and very much enjoy the outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, ride 4 wheelers, chop wood with my dad and just be in the mountains. I also love to dance and was on the Drill Team all through middle school and high school. I attended one year at SUU, which I majored in Psychology. Over the years I have realized the importance of the Gospel and how much it has truly blessed my life. I am a family person and I love my family more than anything. I am preparing to serve a mission in Jacksonville Florida and I leave November 13th.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had the privilege of being a member my entire life. I love the our Lord and Savior and am always striving to live the commandments daily. I believe in the Atonement of Jesus Christ and his sacrifice for my sins. Without it I would be lost. This church has given me the direction I need in how to live my life. I know that if we have faith in the Lord and his timing everything will turn out for our good.

How I live my faith

You know, it took me a long time to actually figure out how to live it for myself. Everyone always told me what I should do and I did it. But then it came to the point where I needed to decide for myself. I had always believed the Book of Mormon was true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet but I hadn't ever asked to gain the witness for myself. Once I did the choice was easy. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. I strive daily to live the commandments because obviously they're for our good because the Lord has commanded us to live them. I'm no where near perfect but I strive every day to be. I love this gospel more than anything and I can't even begin to describe how many blessings I've gained from it. Also now that I am preparing to serve a mission I study Preach My Gospel like its no bodys business!
