Hi I'm Martine

I grew up in England. I love my husband, I love to dance, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My childhood was spent in England. I attended multi-faith schools in a culturally diverse community and studied languages at university. Although I live in California, I maintain close ties with my family in Europe. My husband and I love to dance.

Why I am a Mormon

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have found answers to the question: What is our purpose on earth? In our mortal existence, we are faced with situations that offer challenges and test our strengths. I am guided by the prompting of the Holy Spirit within and an understanding of the eternal perspective. Faith in my Heavenly Father permeates the philosophy that I uphold and the principles by which I live and work. Jesus Christ is my Savior, my Redeemer, and my advocate with God.

How I live my faith

Faith is not passive belief but is expressed through action and infuses my physical, spiritual, and emotional life. I know that Jesus Christ exists and strive to live according to the will of my Heavenly Father. Faith is nurtured by praying regularly, keeping the commandments, and studying scriptures. Sunday is a time for reflection. I try to keep the Sabbath day holy by refraining from work activities and focusing instead on the renewal of covenants and spiritual nourishment. I am truly grateful for my husband, my eternal companion.
