Hi I'm Mel

I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, niece, and aunt. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to the most wonderful man I know! I want to be a better person because of him. I am a mother, who stays at home to raise four children, two boys, two girls. My days consist of trying to make a difference in their lives, and the lives of those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have always been a member. However, every day is a choice to live the gospel. I choose every day. I choose because I can. Because I want to. Being a member of this church makes me happy. So happy. It gives me direction. It helps me make all of the decisions I am faced with. Through the church

How I live my faith

Every day I pray and read my scriptures. I ask Heavenly Father what he would have me do for that day and then I try really hard to listen. Sometimes it is a thought, call this person, go visit her. Other times it is a picture in my mind, or a thought to do something that just doesn't go away. I try very hard to be open to this communication. It is changing my life. It is changing me. When I was younger I was asked to memorize several scriptures through a church program. One that I try to live my life by is Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in The Lord with all thy heart and lean not into thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths." I know I can trust The Lord. I know that I can rely on Him and He will lead me along. I have seen it over and over. When I have done all that I can do, I trust that things will work out and often, the results are amazing. There is just no way things could have worked out that way. Not with me in charge. The Lord knows me. He knows what I need. He knows the help that should be given and the perfect time to give it. He has a bigger picture because He knows everything from the beginning to the end. He loves me. He loves you. He loves us. So much that He sent His beloved son, Jesus Christ, to suffer, pain unimaginable, so we could find our way back to Him. So now. Now I try to live my life in such a way that I can partake of that sacred sacrifice. That I too may live with my Heavenly Father again.
