Hi I'm Mariah Briggs

Born and raised in "The Bubble." I sing while vacuuming. And I'm a Mormon. Whats up!

About Me

My mom tells me I'm a rebel, my dad says I'm his little angel. My friends can always find me by listening for my laugh. I've done the classic things a mormon girl from Utah does - piano lessons, plays sports, likes the outdoors, goes to BYU Provo etc. And guess what I LOVE IT! Haters gonna hate on Utah, but they don't know what they are missing! The next best thing to Utah has got to be Montana where I basically lived each summer camping and spending time with my cousins.

Why I am a Mormon

Well besides the obvious reason that Mormons are prettier than everyone else (See 2013 New York Times results of BYU Provo being the "Best Looking College Campus"), being a Mormon rocks! First its awesome because I can turn to the Book of Mormon at anytime and find comfort and guidance in the truthfulness of God's word. Second because Mormon's know how to cook some delicious meals and there is always extra. Third because being a Mormon means making a promise to God that I will follow His commandments and He promises to me that I can live with my family FOREVER if I stay true to my promise. Families Can Be Together Forever: threat? Or promise? Probably a little bit of both.

How I live my faith

How I live it? How do I not live it? My faith is in everything thing I do, say, think and search for. I'm always asking questions and I don't know where I would be without the answers found in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I get through each day with faith that I'm where God wants me to be. Until April 2015 I'm serving all day everyday in the Great Louisville Kentucky Mission. As a missionary you have to have faith, you need to have faith, and I do have faith! Faith that Heavenly Father loves all of His children, and wants them all to know the message of peace and hope the gospel of Jesus Christ brings.
