Hi I'm Maren Christiansen

I’m a daughter, sister, and aunt. I’m a dancer and a sports fan. I’m an adventure seeker. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Maren and I am from Utah. I have been continuing my education at Brigham Young University, the school of my dreams ever since the first BYU football game I attended with my dad. For the next 18 months, I have chosen to serve as a missionary and couldn’t be more excited! I love doing anything with my family and friends but usually we center our activities around sports and the outdoors. Some of my favorite traditions are family tennis tournaments and early morning fishing trips. I’ll never back down from a competition and my guilty pleasure is peanut butter.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the principles of the gospel has brought so much peace and happiness to me and my family. I love that every person can develop a relationship with our Heavenly Father who knows and understands us individually. I know that Heavenly Father loves every single one of us so much and that as we strive to become closer to Him, our desire to be obedient will increase.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to help the people around me. The ultimate example of service is our Savior Jesus Christ and I always strive to keep His example in mind as I go throughout my day. When I forget about myself and serve others, I feel true happiness. You never know the difference that something little like a smile or a note can really make in someone's life.
