Hi I'm Mariah Rodriguez

I was born in California, I am currently serving a mission in Birmingham Alabama, My family is everything to me and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love singing, whether it's by myself or around others. My passion in life is anything DISNEY! I am a very family oriented person. I have put aside a year and a half to serve the people in the Birmingham Alabama Mission. Also I am a convert to the LDS church and I Know it, I Live it, and I Love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to this church. I was still young when I joined this church, but I had yet to really be converted myself. I gained a foundation for my testimony when I decided to serve a mission for my Savior and Heavenly Father. I wanted to be obedient to what my Heavenly Father had called me to do. I can honestly say my oldest sister made the biggest impression and impact on me when she set that example for me to serve. I know that this is the true restored gospel of Jesus Christ because I have seen many blessing and I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to me when I asked my Heavenly Father if The Book of Mormon is true and I know if others will just ask in faith, they will receive the same answer I have.

How I live my faith

It is by the choices I make now. I am now serving the people here in Birmingham, Alabama, and I love it! I choose to be happy during times of trial. Yes, it's hard, but I know it is possible because of my savior and what he did for me. A quote that I now try to live by, is from The Humanitarian, Bishnu Adhikari who was in the movie Meet the Mormons, "I'm not close to perfection, but I'm perfect in one thing: I'm perfect in trying."
