Hi I'm Marissa

I grew up in Minnesota. I'm a broadcast journalist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my family and my friends and I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. I believe in eternal families and I am so grateful for the knowledge that I can be with them forever. I am studying Broadcast Journalism at BYU and I am in training to be a newsroom producer or a social media manager. I love all things music, dancing and good food. My free time is spent exploring Utah's mountains and National Parks.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in the simple truths of this gospel. Living the fullness of the gospel brings me more happiness and joy than I can ever describe. I am grateful for my knowledge that I can be with my family forever. I am grateful for my knowledge that Christ died for me and is my Savior. I am grateful for my knowledge that He paid the price for my sins so that I can be with our Heavenly Father again. I am grateful for the happiness that living the standards brings me. Living this gospel has brought me innumerable blessings and has brought me even closer to my Heavenly Father and my Savior.

How I live my faith

I attend church meetings every Sunday, and spend time learning about the gospel in different classes. I serve as a choir director in my congregation, and a music coordinator for all the congregations in my area. I regularly dive into my scriptures and seek out new knowledge and light from them. But living my faith is not just attending church meetings and reading my scriptures. Truly living my faith extends to my daily actions. I live my faith in the way that I act, think and treat people. I live my faith by developing Christlike attributes and lifting up others wherever I go. I live my faith by striving to become like Him, and looking to Him in all aspects of my life. Even though I am far from perfect, I live my faith by trying a little bit harder to be a little better every single day.
