Hi I'm Narissa

I grew up in Alabama. I love music and reading. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a middle child with two brothers, one on either side. I enjoy watching anime and drawing. I was in marching band during high school I prefer 80's rock and Disney music to what is generally found on the radio. I love to read all kinds of books but mostly historical fiction and fantasy. Dorky underrated films are always a favorite! One day I hope to travel the world!

Why I am a Mormon

People sometimes think that being a Mormon is hard because of "all the rules", but I don't so. On the contrary, everything that has been taught in this gospel is for our own benefit. Whether we choose to follow these guidelines or not is up to us. I always feel the happiest when I am reading my scriptures and attending my church meetings. It makes me feel like everything is good and right in the world. I have gone without these things by choice and the lack of goodness is noticeable. I know that I am a daughter of God and that He loves me even when I make mistakes. Jesus Christ is my savior and because of his sacrifice, the gift of the Atonement, I am able to ask forgiveness for my sins and mistakes. Heavenly Father wants the best for us just as any parent would. Through His grace and the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I know that one day I can return to my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I love being a part of the LDS church as it is the same no matter where you go, anywhere in the world. I know this, as my family has moved a lot while I was growing up. There are always classes offered both in and outside of church as well as fun activities to better get to know the people in your ward and age group. I often go to the events planned for the young single adults(YSA). We have great discussions and food whenever we get together. Not to mention the dances which are an awesome way to mingle.
