Hi I'm Michele

I'm a wife & mother, a runner, a quilter, and a book lover. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost I'm a wife and mother...two jobs I really love. Before deciding to be a stay-at-home mom, I taught elementary school and then worked for a cell phone development company. Some of my favorite things to do are traveling to tropical destinations, designing & making quilts, and spending time with my family. I recently started homeschooling our daughter, who was diagnosed with dyslexia. It has been challenging, but very worth it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes all the difference in my life. Understanding and living the gospel of Jesus Christ brings me so much happiness and real peace. That doesn't mean my life is perfect! But, being a Mormon helps me deal with any challenges that come along. I'm a Mormon because it helps me to be a better wife and mother. It helps me through difficult times, provides friends I can count on, gives me answers to questions I have, encourages me to become a better person, and brings me hope for the future.

How I live my faith

My most favorite way to live my faith is to attend the temple. It's hard to explain the powerful Spirit that hits me the moment I enter the temple doors. It is a place of peace, of learning, of joy, and prayer. I love, love, LOVE serving in the temple. It centers me, helps me put my life in perspective, and I feel like I leave it a better person. The temple is the House of the Lord--a very holy place that I am honored to enter. The greatest blessings on earth are given to us in the temple.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

In the book of Malachi of the Old Testament, the commandment to pay tithing is given. Mormons donate 10% of their income to follow this commandment. We feel like God gives us everything and only asks for 10% back. When we pay our tithing we are blessed so much that this small amount seems very insignificant. Show more Show less
