Hi I'm Marnie Rogers

I grew up in California. I am a high school teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up a member of this church. I was raised by a single mother. I attended BYU and currently teach high school in California. I love my students and my work. I have seven nieces and nephews whom I love more than anything in the world. I spend as much time as possible with them. My hobbies include attending live events concerts, plays, sporting events, traveling, reading, and making new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

 After a period of questioning shortly after college I heard a talk given by the bishop of my ward. He referred to a scripture in the Doctrine and Covenants where it says that to some it is "given to know these things" and to others it is "given to believe on their words." After years of not understanding why I didn't "KNOW" I realized it was alright to believe. Living the gospel has enriched my life in many ways. I have a testimony that this gospel is true and that, if I live righteously, I will earn my reward in heaven and return to live with my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am a member of the activities committee in my ward. We plan monthly activities for the members of our ward to get together and socialize. I am in a midsingles ward so we tend to have more activities than other wards. I try to live my life in a way that is pleasing to my Heavenly Father. I try to learn from those around me how to become the person I want to be.
