Hi I'm Clarissa

I'm a college freshman majoring in Music Education, I have a mission call to New Zealand, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am college freshman. I LOVE to sing, especially opera. I played Mabel in the Comic Opera "the Pirates of Penzance". It was absolutely wonderful! I was totally in my element. :) I love people and I am the oldest of six siblings who I love so much.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because my religion gives me the most happiness in life. The peace and joy that I get from knowing that I am a child of God who can return to him someday is immeasurable. I know that God loves me and each of his children individually and that he is guiding our lives. I am so thankful for this knowledge. I am Mormon because I know that if I follow God's commandments and take advantage of the mercy and atonement of Christ, I can be forgiven and be with my family forever. That means so much to me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true! It is what makes everything worth it.

How I live my faith

In high school I was the director of the church choir in my congregation. It was a wonderful experience! Now, once a month, I teach a lesson to a great group of women (the girls that live on my floor in my college dorm). I try hard to read the scriptures every day and to pray to my Heavenly Father often. I try to be kind to everyone I meet and treat them how I would want to be treated. Now, I am preparing to serve a mission for the church. I will be serving in Hamilton, New Zealand and I am so excited to fall in love with the New Zealand people and teach them about what makes me so happy.
