Hi I'm Michele

Single Mother - Former Atheist - Proud Mormon

About Me

I am a single mother and former atheist who has been a member of the Church for close to 3 years now. The entire experience has been great for both me and my daughter and although no other members of my family have joined, I have seen many small changes in them that tells me I have set a great example for them and that my happiness as a Mormon has inspired them to go out and search for happiness of their own. I have witnessed many tiny miracles (and a few really big ones) since my baptism and can't believe how my life has improved... in temporal as well as truly measurable physical ways as well. Joining this church has been the best decision I've ever made. I have so many wonderful & inspiring stories and I love to tell them as often as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because two inspired young ladies (missionaries) took the time to sit with me and helped me learn how to pray, how to tune into the Spirit and how my Heavenly Father loves and knows me very personally, just as these young women came to over time as well. They are now two of my closest friends and I am so thankful that they took time out of their lives to serve a mission, that they took time to get to know me on a very personal level, that they had the love of Christ and brought such a wonderful feeling and Spirit into my home and helped me to realize what I have known my entire life.

How I live my faith

In my ward I am the employment specialist and it is such a rewarding calling. I was lucky enough to find a job very quickly when I moved here to Salt Lake City and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was my faith and devoted prayers that brought that opportunity to my door. I love sharing my story with my ward members and encouraging them to look to God for help in their job search. Hotjobs & Monster are great places to look for applications but the most effective tools we have in any situation is earnest prayer and faith that even in hard times, Heavenly Father will provide and he will not let you fail beyond what you can handle. I love being able to share this wisdom and encouragement with my friends and neighbors.
