Hi I'm Lillie Marie

I was born in Texas and raised in the South, I love to sing and smile, and I am a M O R M O N ! :)

About Me

I am a college student and I love to be happy! I find my happiness by singing, reading, spending time with my family, and helping others smile:) While growing up my family moved often and I love making new friends and finding opportunities to serve. I find the greatest happiness by living as a disciple of Christ. I am about to leave and serve as a Missionary for the church in Mexico:)

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ because it is the only place I have felt the true presence of love and joy. I know that this is Christ's church on Earth. I love Heavenly Father, and I know He loves me. I am His child, and so are you! When I was growing up in the church I had some kids at church actually treat me pretty badly. They were rude and would bully me at activities. I felt like an outsider, and I stopped even wanting to come to church because of it. But I realized that I didn't choose to be baptized because I wanted friends in my ward- I chose to be baptized because I wanted to follow God and come closer to Him. So, I kept going to church and fulfilling my covenants and I have never been happier today!

How I live my faith

The best way I live my faith is through service. I live my faith by smiling at those who look down, being a friend to those I come in contact with, and striving to be an instrument for Christ. In my ward, this is even the assignment I have been placed over! It is my job to organize who can provide the extra help that some of the members may need when faced with sickness, stress, or if they just need comfort.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Lillie Marie
We have always had the Bible, and it is a wonderful book of light and truth! But, there were essential things missing that needed to be brought back to the world. We had a piece of the word of God, but we needed all of His word, and His Power, to be restored back to the Earth. Show more Show less
