Hi I'm Maria'Chanell

I love to eat, sleep, music heals the soul, shop, travel, always camera ready, making memories with those I love & I'm a Mormon✨

About Me

Call me Nay! A nickname I had since I was a kid. It's too long of a story & I wouldn't want you to get bored 🙃 Family & friends call me a "laughing machine"😂 I mean who doesn't like to laugh? I'm 25 years old, born & raised in the good ol' promise land, the Bay Area, California 😉✨ & I'm currently serving a mission in the Fort Collins, Colorado Mission. I honestly never had a desire to serve a mission..but because of my darkest and lowest times in my life, the true understanding of Christs atonement helped me become the person I am today. I've realized throughout my life that no matter how many times I've given up on myself, the Lord hasn't & never will give up on me.

Why I am a Mormon

It took me awhile to have a full desire to change my life around. I was born and raised in this gospel but I didn't always make the right decisions. I went to church because my parents wanted me to go. The more I got older was the more I became rebellious. My idea of "problem solving" to my problems was consumed of all the worldly things or in other words, it was all temporal happiness. Thinking it was all "fun" but waking up and my problems would still be there. I disappointed my parents alot and I was called their "problem child" with the route I was taking in life. It didn't hit me till a few years ago that I wanted to have a successful life and I wanted ETERNAL HAPPINESS. I wanted to be happy! Not from what the world has to offer me but what my Heavenly Father has instore for me. I know he loves me and all my flaws unconditionally. I know with no doubt, if there is ONE person that truly understands all of our pain and afflictions it's our savior Jesus Christ. He has payed the price for our sins so that we're able to live with our Heavenly Father once again. I know that God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers I know that "Heaven is Cheering us on today, tomorrow & forever" I know who I am...a daughter of a KING & that is why I AM A MORMON.

How I live my faith

My favorite quote from a mormon message video goes "Spiritual light rarely come to those who merely sit in the darkness, waiting for someone to flip a switch. It takes an ACT OF FAITH to open our eyes to light of Christ" By acting in faith; daily scripture study, daily prayer, attending church is what builds my testimony and increases my faith in myself and our savior. As I put my faith & trust in him, I know he will direct my path because he has. Because of my faith in him, it has led me to serve a mission. I know and testify that this gospel has brought me such happiness and blessed my life in countless ways, so why wouldn't I want to share that happiness with the rest of the world?
