Hi I'm Mariah

I'm serving as missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I attended Brigham Young University as an undergrad for two years, and right now I'm taking a break from schooling to serve as a missionary in the California Irvine Mission! I love to draw and paint, be active and sing. I have a great family that I love to pieces! Especially my twin sister. I've been super blessed all my life and I'm so grateful for the wonderful opportunities I've had to give back to the Lord and others.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because through test and trial, I have found that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me more peace, joy and understanding than anything else in life. As I have learned of the Atonement of Christ, I have felt in my heart of its reality. It's a comfort to me to know that I am completely understood and loved by my Father in Heaven and that if I live the way he would have me live, I can one day return to be with him and be with my family forever. Jesus Christ has made the difference that allows for all of that to happen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to be a positive influence on the people around me. I do things like reading my scriptures, praying, and attending church meetings to learn how to be more like Jesus Christ.
