Hi I'm Maria

I am a wife, mother and grandmother. I live in Orem, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time with my husband and grandchildren. Some of our children live out of state, so we try to visit them as much as we can. I like to travel and see new places. I also enjoy reading, sewing, crafts, jogging and going on long walks. I graduated from Brigham Young University in elementary education. I raised our nine children for many years before I decided to start a teaching career. I recently retired from teaching.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into the church while I was a student at Brigham Young University. My roommates, stake missionaries and other church members all played a part in my conversion. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has blessed my life. I am very happy.

How I live my faith

I strive to be a good person. I don't swear, drink alcohol, or smoke. I try to see the good in others and not be critical. I have made it a goal to reach out to someone at least once a day. I attend church and faithfully fulfill my church responsibilities.
