Hi I'm Clarissa

I was born and raised in a small town in the very southeast corner of Utah. I love music, art, and theater and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of five children. I attend Utah State University. GO AGGIES! I love trying new things and I am crazy about Disney movies!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this faith to a wonderful family. But even though I have always been a part of the church, I still had to go through a conversion process myself to find out whether or not it was the true gospel of Christ. I wasn't always sure I wanted to live by all the commandments in the church. I had lots of questions and doubts, so I decided to look into some things myself. I read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover and I also studied in the Bible. I then prayed to Heavenly Father and asked Him if both of these books were true and if Joseph Smith was one of His prophets. The answer didn't come right away. I continued praying, hoping for some kind of revelation. I did not see an angel, I didn't even hear a voice, but I did feel a very sweet sense of love that filled my entire being. I knew that Heavenly Father was telling me in His own simple way that this was His gospel and that it was the way He wanted me to live. Living the gospel makes me so happy! I can't imagine my life without the church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by praying and studying my scriptures every day. I live faithfully by the teachings and standards of the LDS church. I am currently serving a full-time mission for the church at the Mormon Battalion Site in San Diego!
