Hi I'm Malorie

I grew up in Kaysville, Utah. I love music and my family and friends. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old and attend BYU in Provo as I am studying to become an elementary teacher! I love kids and can't wait to have my own class one day. I love listening to music, mostly country, I love movies, I love to golf, and read. I am the second of four kids and my family are my best friends. I also love my friends, and I love to just be happy. I love to laugh and especially love those people who can make me laugh. I hope to be able to travel and see as much of the world as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me incredibly happy. I have a knowledge that I can be with my family forever, that the end of this life is not really the end, and mostly that even though I know I am not perfect now, I have the opportunity to one day become perfect. One thing I really love about being Mormon is the hope that the gospel brings. I know that Jesus Christ lived and died so that I can be forgiven of the mistakes I make, and that my shortcomings can be made up for through Jesus Christ. It is so comforting to me to know that I have a Savior who knows me better than I know myself, and who is directing my life every single day. I am excited for the future and for things to come because I know that with Christ, everything will be alright. I continue to follow His gospel because I have found that by doing the small and simple things such as praying, reading the Book of Mormon, attending my church meetings, and working to do what is right, I am a much happier person. The gospel also creates a sort of unity and makes this world a little smaller. I love having numerous service opportunities, and opportunities to meet Mormons from all around the world. I also love having a ward family who cares for one another. Many of my friendships have come from within my ward and from the time we have spent together. I have met some of the greatest people I have ever known through my ward and church service. Overall, I have seen how the gospel can change lives and provide direction for those that are lost. I feel overwhelmingly grateful for the knowledge, comfort, love, and happiness the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me. I love being a Mormon and knowing that my Savior lives.

How I live my faith

In my young single adult wards, I have been a member of the compassionate service committee, and activities committee. I would help to plan activities, prepare food, or help anywhere I am needed. I also visit girls in my ward with my roommate to make sure they are ok. We go every month and will talk with the girls we visit, share a video, take them a treat, or just sit and talk for a while. I also take religion classes at BYU. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to study my religion along with my other schooling.
