Hi I'm Melanie

I am a college student. I love spending time with children! I know ASL. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Family means everything to me! I am the oldest in my family and my siblings are my best friends! I also grew up with amazing cousins and close friends who are more like brothers and sisters to me. I love being around people and could spend hours talking, laughing, crying, listening, and telling stories with others. I am a graduate with a degree in Education and Child Development. I love learning and decided to continue taking some classes to study American Sign Language and loved it. ASL is a passion of mine! I have spent quite a few summers living on the east coast working as a nanny and loved every minute of it!! I have always had a great passion for children and taken every opportunity to be with them which has given me a ton of wonderful experience. My ultimate goal in life is to have a family and be able to stay home with my children. I love being domestic and spend lots of time cooking, sewing, cleaning and organizing. I am a nurturer by nature :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in a very active LDS family. My mom comes from pioneer ancestors and my dad was a convert at the age of 19. I had always been taught the gospel and attended church growing up but I am a Mormon now because I have a testimony of the truthfulness of it. Its not because my parents believe, or because I had great young women leaders, or because all my friends do it.....its because I know its true! I've asked and received the undeniable answer... Its true!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything I do. I am who I am because of what I know. I try to let the light of Christ shine through me. I have served in a wide variety of callings over the years. I have been given the opportunity to teach lessons, visit teach, help others find employment, and was part of a few presidencies in the woman's organization in the church. I also love being part of ward choirs where I am able to sing praises to my Savior though music!

Are Mormons Christians?

Melanie
YES!!! Remember, Mormon is a term commonly used to refer to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This is Christ's church. He is our Savior, Redeemer, and Son of God. Mormons are most definitely Christian! Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Melanie
As members of the church, we believe in serving others. This has no bounds or limitations. The church has a huge humanitarian program that is used in blessing people all across the world. Service is given to people of all nationalities, speaking all languages, members of all faiths, living on all continents. We are taught and encouraged to serve and love all of God's children- members of the church or not. Show more Show less
