Hi I'm Marissah Owens

I grew up in Palmer, Alaska! I've been called to serve in the Florida, Tallahassee Mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I've been called to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I've been assigned to labor in the Tallahassee Florida mission! That includes parts of Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi. I'm extremely excited! I come from an awesome family! I have the best parents, 2 brother and 5 sisters, they're my best friends. They've had a great impact on me and helped me to become who I am today! I'm and aunt to 4 of the cutest kids! I have 1 nephew, and 3 neices and they bring so much joy to my life. I also love to sing, dance, listen to music, go camping, four wheeling, fishing and play games in the front yard! I love sunsets, mountains, and the beautiful earth God gave us! Goofing off, smiling and laughing is my favorite!

Why I am a Mormon

I've grown up in the Mormon church. My parents always took me every Sunday and taught me to follow all the standard or the church! I've always known that it was true I just didn't fully know for myself until I really started reading my scriptures and praying. Before that I was pretty lazy when it came to studying my scriptures and praying every day. Then my life had a turning point. I remember feeling very lonely and I didn't know what else to do, so I decided to pray.That night I felt the spirit very strong and I knew that my Savior was there. I knew he loved me and he knew exactly what I was going through. Since then my testimony has been really strengthened on Christ and his Atonement. I know with out a doubt that he died for me and for everyone. He suffered for all of us individually because he loves us and he wants us to return to our Heavenly Father some day. I also know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and he saw our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that through him the gospel was restored onto the earth. I know that Thomas S Monson is our prophet today and that he was called by God to lead and guide the church. I know life has challenges but God doesn't give us anything we can't handle. I've been through things that i never thought I would and I've come out strengthened by them. I have a testimony of Gods timing, all things happen when they're supposed to. And I know that the power of the priesthood is Gods power on the earth and I've seen it work many miracles in my life and in others lives. I'm so blessed and very grateful to be a member of this church, it's the only true church on the earth. Im a Mormon. I know it. I live it. I love it.

How I live my faith

I'll be serving a mission and help to bring other unto Christ! To give them the joy and happiness that every person deserves. I'm going to be able to meet many new people and share with them what I know to be true! I couldn't be more excited for this great opportunity.
