Hi I'm Marissa

I currently attend Brigham Young University and I'm preparing to serve a mission in Chile. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm the oldest of three children and I love my family very much. My hobbies include cooking, reading, dancing, and running. I'm going to college and studying to be a nurse. I love to be with my friends and spend time outdoors, especially in the mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love this gospel. I was raised LDS by my parents but there came a time when I needed to decide for myself if I believed in it or not. I knelt in prayer and asked if the church was true and I felt a calm, peaceful feeling. That feeling returns each time I open my scriptures or attend church. The teachings of the gospel have provided me with so much comfort. I know that I after I die I will live with my family and Father in Heaven. No matter what happens in this life, I find peace in knowing that I have a Savior who bled and died for me and knows exactly how it feels to experience the pains and trials I feel in this life.

How I live my faith

I love to go to church every Sunday. But it doesn't just end on Sundays. Everyday I strive to read my scriptures, pray, and share what I believe by upholding my standards. I also love to attend the temple regularly.
