Hi I'm Michelle

I grew up in So. California and sing professionally. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am a convert to the Church. My 12-year old son and I live in a small town in Oregon. I love music and am the Relief Society pianist currently. I have been practising the Organ lately with the hopes of stepping up as Ward Organist. I sing professionally and love music callings. I do have something called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy after a freak accident on a city bus. It has changed my life immensely. Living with chronic pain is definitely an enduring experience as I raise my son and live according to our Heavenly Father's plan. I love meeting new people and enjoy many hobbies including cooking, baking, reading, singing, playing musical instruments and many others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert recently to the Church. I converted from being a Catholic last year and anticipate happily going to the Temple this December. As my young son, Mommie, before we had a little truth about Jesus, now we have it all. That speaks volumes about how I personally feel about our Church. I am always filled with hope and amazement when I think of Joseph Smith praying in the Sacred Grove and being obedient to Heavenly Father's plan for his life. What an awesome experience to be in the presence of our Heavenly Father and Jesus. I feel so fortunate that he sought so faithfully to be what Heavenly Father wanted of him. I only pray that I might be as faithful and obedient.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith one day at a time. I love my musical calling. I also enjoy teaching music to children and assisting anyone that wants to learn to sing or play the piano. Learning to play the organ has been such a heart warming experience as I never expected to enjoy it so very much. If you had asked me a year ago if I would have spent several hours a week practising the organ, I would have said you were crazy! Now you can't keep me away!

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Absolutely Not! Joseph Smith was the first prophet of our Church. A prophet while an important part of our Church, is not what we "worship". Mormons are Christians, we worship Jesus Christ.  Show more Show less
