Hi I'm Maren

I grew up in the smallest of towns. I love photography. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a town with a population smaller than 1,000, in the middle of rural Utah. I have recently finished my first year of college and I am about to go on a year and a half adventure to Ecuador for my mission. I love photography and design. I love meeting people and learning a their stories. I just love life and I love being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I have always gone to church, but I didn't always love it. When I was in middle school, I kind of fell away, well as much as I could living in my parents house. I made mistakes that I never thought that I would have and I was in a terrible place. Eventually after two years of living in grief and sorrow, I was able to find my way back. I was able to come back, because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Christ became a reality to me and I love him so much! After I came unto Christ, all of my guilt and sorrow was gone! I was able to be happy again. I knew what true happiness was again. I live the gospel, because it brings me peace. It brings me happiness, true happiness and it feels like home! I know that I am loved and I know that this church is true! That is why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I teach the youth in the church and I am about to enter the mission field to teach the gospel to the people of Ecuador.
