Hi I'm Marissa

I love sharing the gospel. I believe that a smile means everything. I like to sing in the shower. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the simple things in life. I know that forever happiness comes through living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I enjoy reading novels and watching movies. I like to run and play sports. I've been to one year of University and I loved being an ambassador there. I am going to serve an eighteen month mission in Toronto Canada and I couldn't be more excited. Being an ambassador for my Savior is much more important to me. I have acted in many musicals and plays and I love to watch them too. I like making cookies and other desserts. I love to laugh and I have many different laughs, but most are pretty embarrassing. I'm blessed with a big loving family that helps me with all of my endeavors. They mean the world to me and I know that I can be with them forever because of the Plan of Salvation.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a very Mormon centered household, but that's not the only reason that I'm a Mormon. I had to know for myself. Through studying the Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ I learned that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I felt God's love and I felt peace. I never doubted that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the only true church because I lived it and it felt right, but after sincerely praying about it, I knew that Joseph Smith restored Christ's original church to the earth once again. I love this gospel and I love the protection and comfort it gives me. I know that Jesus Christ lives and has been crucified for me and for everyone on this earth. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and is watching over and listening to my prayers. I know that when I die that I will get to be with my family again because we are sealed together and keep the covenants we have made. I am so excited to go on a mission to share the happiness I have because of His gospel. Everything that is important to me comes from God. I am forever humbled and grateful to be His daughter.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to remember my Savior. I do my best to always become more like him. I live happily, because that's what the gospel means to me. It means everlasting happiness with my Heavenly Father. Don't get me wrong, I still make mistakes every day, but I know that through repentance that I can change and not make so many mistakes. I make an effort to serve others and give of myself because I know that when I lose my life in the service of others that I find myself. I know that my Savior lives and that He is forever by my side. I love Him and because of Him my life is worth living.
