Hi I'm Marva

I grew up on the Avenues in Salt Lake City. I am a retired elementary school teacher. I taught 1st grade

About Me

I graduated from the University of Utah and taught Kindergarten and First Grade for over 30-plus years. I am now retired. I am the mother of two adopted daughters and the grandmother of 3 grown grandchildren. I am proud of my water colors. I love to cook for my family and for Church events. I love to read and belong to a community book club. My favorite books are the Hiding Place, The Rent Collector, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Molokai. But the most wonderful book of all is the Book of Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have never worried about being a leader. I love to follow. I love to serve. I follow light and truth. I follow Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I served a mission for my church in Florida under President Ned Winder. I have always had callings in my church, frequently as a Sunday School teacher. I served as a Primary President which is an organization teaching children. I taught the women's group in church. My husband and I completed an Inner City Service Mission in Murray, Utah. Until recently I also volunteered as a temple worker in the Bountiful Temple.
