Hi I'm Maura

I'm a missionary in Tampa, Florida! I love ice cream and candy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I'm Sister Maura Millard and right now I'm serving a mission in Tampa, Florida. I grew up in Utah, the youngest of seven kids. I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a degree in Communications and interned/worked for various sports teams before coming on my mission. I hope to work for Real Salt Lake, Utah's soccer team, when I return home! I'm not very good at sports, but I sure love to be a part of them. I love Florida and absolutely love the sunshine and seeing the ocean everyday!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church. My mom was converted in her early twenties and although my dad was born a member, he wasn't very active in church until his late teens when he decided he wanted to go on a mission. It was their example that helped me a lot when I came to the point in my life where I needed to decide for myself if this church was true. After a lot of prayer and reading/studying of the Book of Mormon, I was able to come to that knowledge through the Holy Ghost. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that he brought about the restoration of the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know my Savior lives and that he died for me so that I can one day live with my Heavenly Father again. I know that we are all God's children and He wants us to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to become more like Jesus Christ. I read my scriptures, pray, look for opportunities to help others around me and be happy!
