Hi I'm Merilee

I grew up in Santaquin Utah, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my first year of college. It was a really cool experience for me, I had a hard time at first because I like to be at home with my family. But, through prayer Heavenly Father sent the Holy Ghost to comfort me and to help me get over my homesickness. I met many individuals that have had a huge impact on my life. I love photography, singing, hiking, camping, and kayaking, these are just a few things that I enjoy doing. I am a missionary for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I am serving in the Oklahoma, Oklahoma City mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know the Book of Mormon is a book from God and that it is good and true. The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ our Savior. The Prophet Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon in these the latter-days. President Russell M. Nelson is the true and living Prophet on the earth today. He receives guidance and inspiration from God our Eternal Father. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, He loves each one of us. I know that the Savior died for our sins and that He rose again on the third day. I know with all my heart that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us and are waiting for us to return home to them.

How I live my faith

I try to be an example of Christ, in all that I say and do. I'm not afraid to live my beliefs, which include attending the temple, studying and pondering the scriptures, and attending church on Sundays. I try not to allow others to sway me away from my beliefs. I was on the Missionary council in my singles ward. In Missionary council we were able to help the Missionaries to find people to teach.
