Hi I'm Marissa

I am from Utah, I love to play and coach sports, enjoy learning and I am Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest daughter in my family. I grew up playing sports and now I enjoy coaching. I coach a youth soccer and volleyball team. I enjoy the chance I have to interact with the youth, to help them, to build relationships and I hope that I am making a difference in their lives. I just finished my first year of collage. I am going on a mission to serve the Lord and to bring the gospel to those who are searching for it and I am hoping to get into nursing school when I get back.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up Mormon and I have been surrounded by amazing people throughout my life. I have come to know, for myself, that this church is true. This gospel bring happiness, love, hope, comfort, and it brings understanding and peace through its teachings. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father love me. I know that they love each individual person and that through the atonement of Jesus Christ, through repentance and by having faith in Jesus Christ, we all can return to our loving father in heaven again. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and its words can help us and guide us. I have read it for myself and have prayed for confirmation to know that it is true. If you have questions of your own, I promise that you pray to Heavenly Father with humble heart and real intent, you will receive and answer. Prayer is a free way to communicate with our Father in Heaven and it is a way for him to communicate with us. I know this church is true.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am preparing to go out and serve a mission. I know that that is where the Lord would like me to be at this point in my life. Up to this point in my life, I have served in many callings with opportunities to testify of what I believe in, as well as invite others to come unto Christ. I have had to chance to be a teacher and a coach to youth and the best way to show what I believe in is to live by example. I have had chances to serve and I have grow to love so many wonderful people.
