Hi I'm Mary

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, but go to school in Hawaii at Brigham Young University of Hawaii. And I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Mary and I go to college at Brigham Young University and I love it! It's on the island of Oahu and located on the North Shore where there are lots of beautiful beaches and surf competitions that my friends and I love to attend! My favorite things to do are basically anything outdoors, like hiking and swimming in the ocean, and also anything music related. I grew up playing the violin, piano, and ukulele, was in orchestra and piano performance, worked in an auditorium doing lights and sound, and like to write songs. Also, if you are an alternative rock fan, I can probably tell you all my favorite songs by your favorite bands! I have a weakness for thrift shopping, anything coconut-flavored, and SHRIIIIIIMP!!! Now I am going to serve a mission in TOKYO, Japan, how cool is that? I am so excited to share what makes me so happy and what I know is true (the Gospel of Jesus Christ) with all the new friends I meet!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ and am happiest in my life when I am following his example and teachings. I was born into a family who are members of this church and my parents have always been good examples to me by living righteously. This gospel is the best, most precious, most uplifting, most strengthening, most grounding part of my life because I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, loves me and that nothing can separate me from that love, and that He will always be there for me when I need His help.

How I live my faith

Right now, I am preparing to serve in the Tokyo South mission, which is where I go and teach the LDS gospel to the people of Japan!! When I'm on my mission, pretty much all of my time will be spent doing church responsibilities like teaching people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and doing church-related service. In the church, we have assignments named "callings" where we take part in specific jobs to help keep the church running. Right now, my calling is to be a missionary and so I'll be serving the church by finding and teaching new members.
