Hi I'm Michelle

I grew up in Provo, Utah. I attend Brigham Young University. I'm 19 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a sophomore at Brigham Young University where I am on the ballroom dance company. I have danced for 8 years and I love it! I hope to be on the touring team next year so I can travel the world, share the gospel and show others my love for dance. I just recently got married and I am happy as can be. Life feels like its just getting started, the good part anyway. I go to work and school everyday and try to spend all the time I can just hanging out with my wonderful husband. We enjoy doing everything together.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church so it's all I've ever known. But that's not why I'm here now. I have grown to realize that this church is everything in my life. It has made me who I am today and that is a follower of Christ, trying to become all that I have potential to be. I wouldn't say that my life's been easy, but it's been easier because of the principles I've learned and because of the things I believe about this gospel. I am a part of this church because I believe in Christ and I believe in eternal families in which I look forward to being a part of.

How I live my faith

This church is not just a sunday thing. This church is learning to become like Christ each and every day and that's what I do. I strive to strengthen my relationship with those who I love and care for. I try to do all that is asked of me by ancient and modern prophets and apostles. This includes having "Family Home Evening" every Monday night, having individual and family prayer each day, reading scriptures daily, and trying to do my best in all that I participate in.

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

It helps to build churches, temples, funds missionary efforts, humanitarian aid, and many more things that help the church to serve its members and the world around us. Show more Show less
