Hi I'm Marjia Farris

I grew up in Springville, Utah. I am currently a missionary for the church, in the Washington DC North mission.

About Me

I am the third child of four. I have lived in Springville Utah my entire life. Being a member of the church has not always been easy for me, but in the end it has always been worth it. I grew up living the outdoors, playing soccer, and being adventurous. My family is the most important to me, as well as the gospel. I will be serving a mission in the Washington DC North mission. I will be leaving on May 9, 2018. I can not wait for this opportunity to serve my Heavenly Father and to bring back the lost sheep.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply because its the truth. I have felt the love and the truth countless times throughout my life. I know that we always have the love of our Savior when we feel like there is no one else. The Book of Mormon is for our day, to cling to and to rely on for the truth. The gospel is good, and our Heavenly Father will never leave us a lone.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping the commandments that we have been given. I strive each day to the best that I can. A way I try to be missionary each and everyday is while I read my scriptures everyday I find one or two scriptures that I feel the spirit while reading- sometimes it'll be a talk or even a quote, but I post these on my social media. I used to feel bad about doing this because countless times I have had people tell me how annoying it was that I did this. I didn't let it stop me because the people who were saying these things didn't know what others were saying. I wold have people message me and thanking me for sharing this because it's what they needed to hear. The gospel of Jesus Christ works in mysterious ways. I know that it is true, and I know that as we strive to live it and love it. Heavenly Father will bless us because He knows our hearts, and our intent.
