Hi I'm Melissa

I'm from California, a missionary in the Great TKM, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Im a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Serving in the Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I love being a missionary and having the opprotunity to invite others to come unto Christ. I live in California, and love spending time with my family! I enjoy playing the piano, being outside, playing sports ( although Im not that coordinated!). I love to laugh, and to help others in need. I enjoy listening to classic rock, and love to have fun! LIfe is great! Im a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I love this gospel. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest thing on this planet. It has brought me such peace,and happiness in my life. I know that this gospel gives us happiness now, here on earth and also in eternity. I've been a member all my life. I could have attended many other churches as I grew up...but I knew in my heart that there was something here for me in this church. For years, I relied on my parents testimony, and in time I had to come to know for myself if it was true. I was one day reading in the scriptures, and I felt the spirit very strong. The thought came to me that I needed to pray. I knelt in prayer, and asked Heavenly Father if this gospel-if the Book Of mormon was true, if the gospel of Jesus Christ was true...and as I prayed I recieved an answer of peace. Everyone has their own conversion story, and this is mine. I know who I am. I know I have a purpose in this life, and where I go when I pass on. This gospel is the only thing that keeps me going. We all have are trials and difficulties in life...and as I rely on my Savior and His Atonement..my burdens are lifted. It brings me such sweet joy to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Currently, Im serving a mission in Knoxville, Tennessee. I have been able to share the gospel for the past year about our Savior Jesus Christ. Its been amazing!!! In the past I worked with children, 3-4 yr olds and taught them about Christ. It really set a foundation for me of how I want to raise my children. I live my faith each day, by being an example to those around me.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

You can kow that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints is true by first having missionaries come to teach you more, and then taking time to read from the Book Of Mormon, and praying. You can read just one verse and feel the spirit. Without praying you wont be able to recieve an answer. Thats why pray is so important. Dont depend on what we say, but YOU can find out for yourself if it's true. The Holy Ghost will tell you the truth of all things, and as you take that step of faith, and ask our Heavenly Father with a sincere heart and with real intent you will recieve an answer. I know it with every part of me. He hears your prayers and will answer them. Show more Show less
