Hi I'm Miriam

I'm a dancer, musician, and pre-med student; and I am so happy to say that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love all forms of dance; from ballet to hip-hop. Music is basically my life; I play flute, piccolo, ukulele, and sometimes I sing. I come from Jewish heritage and I am so proud of it. I'm currently studying to prepare for Med School to hopefully become a surgeon.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in my senior year of high school, my depression got really bad. I had stopped turning to the Lord and started to turning to friends. And these friends were not the best influences on me. I stopped believing in the gospel, and my depression only worsened. This went on for about 8 months, until I left for college. It was then that I realized I was on the wrong path. I decided to start studying my scripture more, and took to much prayer. That's when it all started turning around. I felt in control of my life again, and my depression almost went away. I gained a strength and happiness I hadn't felt in a long time. That's when I really saw what the gospel is able to do for a person, and when I truly became converted the the Church of Jesus Christ. The gospel brings happiness and purpose to me and helps me understand my divine identity and my true worth. And that is why I am happy to say that I am a Mormon, and always will be.

How I live my faith

I was born into the church, and I couldn't be more happy that I was. I love this gospel, and I have seen my life with and without the blessings it brings, and I know that I never want to be without those blessings ever again. The difference is unimaginable. I suffer from depression and anxiety, and every time I feel myself falling, I turn to the scriptures, or to prayer. This church has save my life in countless ways and I am so grateful to be a part of it. I have always believed that being part of a religion includes studying other religions and understanding what they believe and how they connect to mine; so lately I have taken to studying World Religions. Because of this, I have gained a greater love for religion as a whole and my testimony of the truthfulness of the restored gospel has been strengthened immensely. In a few months, I am leaving to serve a full-time mission, and I am so excited to bring the truth to the people will serve and to help them let the gospel change their lives.
