Hi I'm Martha

I come from a very large family. I am a nerdy math major. I am a convert of three years and serving a mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports and school and learning. I am attending college in Utah. I am a Math Education major and yes I am excited to teach high school students. I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ. I come from a very large family of 15 children. Life growing up was loud but our family was filled with love. I am now going to serve an 18 month mission after only being a member for 3 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Living in Utah I have always been surrounded by members. Some of my older siblings joined the church, but it wasn't until my sister who is 2 years older than me joined the church that I really started thinking about joining. I come from a christian background, so I already had faith in Jesus Christ, but something was missing. I meet with the missionaries and I decided that I wanted to join the church during my senior year in high school. I then joined the church in September of 2012. I have a testimony that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings that love me beyond comprehension. The gospel Jesus Christ has laid out for us gives me direction and purpose in life. I can find any answer I am seeking if I just ask. Lastly, I want to add that every person makes a difference in others lives. You have an influence wherever you go whether you realize it or not.

How I live my faith

I have served in may callings in the young single adult wards. These wards consist of single adults ranging from 18 to 30 . I have helped organize fun activities for my ward like visiting a priesthood leaders cabin and getting to know others members that are the same age and have the same faith as me. I have also taught religious classes in my ward on Sundays. These classes are to help build faith in Jesus Christ, strengthen our future families and unite our wards as a hole. I also participate in visiting teaching where I visit fellow women in my ward and check up on them. This has taught me how to be a helping hand and loves others who are not the same as me. It has really help me think about others rather than myself.
