Hi I'm Michelle
I'm an operatic soprano. I'm a mom. I'm a runner. I'm a Mormon.
I am a striking 4'11 twentysomething with enormous potential. I'm currently attending college for Business/Marketing. I love helping people and letting them know that someone really does care. I am a brand new mom to a beautiful little girl. I love music. I play the piano, sing opera as a soprano, and am currently teaching myself to play the guitar. I love the outdoors and running. If I could live someplace where it would be springtime all year, I'd be one happy girl.
I've been a member my entire life. For a long time, I rode on the coattails of my parent's testimonies. It wasn't until I was 14 did I gain my own. So, I suppose I will tell you why I'm STILL a member. All through my high school years I was plagued with serious depression. I felt as if I was drowning in my own darkness. I felt useless, and unworthy of any love. I had given up on everything. The summer after my freshman year of high school, I attended a week long LDS youth camp known as Especially For Youth or EFY. I had never been so wrong about myself in my entire life. I learned how much the Lord loved me, and how much it pained Him to know how little I thought of myself. I learned that the Lord doesn't make mistakes, and since He made me, I must have some purpose here on this earth. Satan was pulling me down so hard and so frequently. But why? Searching my scriptures, I found my answer. "It seems as though the adversary was aware, at a very early period of my life, that I was destined to prove a disturber and an annoyer of his Kingdom; else why should the powers of darkness combine against me? Why the opposition and persecution that arose against me, almost in my infancy?" (Joseph Smith History 1:20) Satan is one of the most powerful tools the Lord has in directing our paths. The harder he works on bringing you down, the more sure you can be that you have divine worth, and that you are important in God's kingdom.
I live my faith by simply living my life in harmony with Gospel principles. Daily, I find ways to participate in random acts of kindness. I love spreading joy to others. I read my scriptures and sing hymns when I am distressed. I don't use lullabys to put my daughter to sleep. I sing her "Abide With Me" instead.
