Hi I'm Melanie

I grew up in California. I love the ocean, music, and being outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play softball. I have a degree in Communications. I love the outdoors. The beach is my favorite place in the whole world.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that I have a Savior who suffered and died for me. He loves me and wants me to do what is right so I can come back and live with Him again. I love Him for that and want to show that love to Him, so I live the way He asks me too.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by supporting leaders. I play the piano in church and I teach when asked. I am also planning on serving a mission.

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

Melanie
Generally the church is against abortion, though there are a few circumstances where it may be appropriate. These are when the life of the mother or the baby is in danger, or in the case of a rape. In those cases it is the families choice. Show more Show less
