Hi I'm Mariel

I grew up in West Valley City, UT and I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Mexico!

About Me

I enjoy being active and spending time with my family and friends. On my spare time I enjoy playing basketball or being outside soaking up the sun. If I´m not outside I enjoy reading books on entrepreneurship and learning about the success of businesses. I also enjoying designing t-shirts or website profiles.

Why I am a Mormon

Like anyone who comes across this I´ve had many questions come to mind as to what this life is and why we´re here, or maybe you haven´t asked that at all.. I came to a point in my life where I had no idea where to turn, or what do to, so I took the challenge as my other friends did and I prayed. I prayed with everything in my to know if I needed to come back to church, if I was needed here, and if I was even worthy to do anything in return to show my love and gratitude. As I prayed and as I waited to see what kind of crazy miracle happen, I felt the simplest feeling of peace and assurance. In the back of my head heard, "Welcome home.. I´ve been waiting for you.." From that day on I desired to give my all and do my best in serving the Lord and helping others feel the same love I know Heavenly Father as for them.. I am a Mormon because I know I am not perfect, but through him I can made whole, I can receive forgiveness, and I can return to Him through His Atonement, love and grace for not just me, but for ALL HIS CHILDREN.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in Ciudad Obregon Mexico. In other words, for 18 months I have the opportunity to completely dedicate my time here in Mexico to share and invite others to learn about the church of Jesus Christ and what we believe in. I reported to the Mexico Training Center (CCM) on April 20th, 2016 and stayed there for 6 weeks to do all that I could to learn more about my purpose as a missionary and of course learn the language as much as I could in that time frame.
