Hi I'm Riley Marina

I'm from Utah, I have a shaved head, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy writing, photography, singing ,graphic arts and playing my uke. I've grown up in Utah my whole life and had the blessing of being born into the gospel. I am a survivor of emotional and psychological abuse, and I deal with mental illness in my life and in the lives of my family members. I work at a print shop where I print and package people's photos, and enjoy creating wonderful memories for people to cherish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because through this gospel I have come to know my Heavenly Father loves me. I know he deemed my life worth the sacrifice of His perfect son Jesus Christ. I know that despite my flaws, He loves me perfectly. God loves each of us. He knows us. Christ knows us. And it is through the everlasting atonement that by them we can be healed from all pain, all sorrow, and sickness. I am a Mormon because through this gospel happiness and peace of mind is found. It is found in the arms of our Savior whose atonement can fill all wounds. I am a Mormon because He loves me.

How I live my faith

In my ward I actively serve by viewing the needs of those in my community on our church facebook page. Here, we can see if someone needs help with yard work or needs a ride to the doctors etc. I also serve by teaching those in the ward how to find their ancestors through world records on the internet. It is a very wonderful experience to link people to their deceased family members!
