Hi I'm Mariah

I attend college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. I am an Music Education major. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi Friends! I am 20 years old and I love my life. I attend Brigham Young University- Idaho at which I am a Music Education Major. I hope one day (soon) I can be in a high school classroom teaching Choir. I love music so much. It is where I thrive and where I feel closest to Heavenly Father. I am the youngest of six children. I feel so privileged to be part of such a close family. We haven't always been this close. It is because of our hardships and Jesus Christ that we were able to be such a close family. Being around my family is what makes me the happiest.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon selfishly because it makes me the happiest. Beside selfishly being a Mormon because I am happy... I am also a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know it is true. I know that when we come unto Jesus Christ we can be saved because of his atonement. I know that because of Jesus Christ I am happy. It is because of him that I feel whole. I know that my Heavenly Father sent his son so that I can feel of this joy. I am a Mormon because the true church.

How I live my faith

Every sunday I attend church for 3 hours. Some my think that that is crazy. However, when I go to those three hours of church I feel at peace. Life can be really hard and the stresses of the week can really get to you. When I attend church my eternal perspective is put back in place. In my church I serve as someone who is in charge of encouraging those that do not come as often to come. It is my job to make them feel loved. I love serving in this position because I love people. I learn so much from every person I come into contact with. My life is not the same with out those few that haven't been coming. My life is blessed more when they are there and so is theirs.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that family is ordained of God. We believe that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Our goal on this earth to have a family and be able to live with them forever. This thought makes me extremely happy to think about. I love my family so much. They are what makes me happiest. I am so excited that one day I will be able to create my own family and be sealed with them forever. This can be done in an LDS temple and is a beautiful thing. We are given family to help us and to lift our spirits. There is so many times in my life that I would have given up if it weren't for my family and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
