Hi I'm Miquelle

I love life, am a wife, a mother of four, a stroke survivor, a medical-resident spouse and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I am supporting my wonderful and patient husband in his Family Practice Residency. We have four adorable children who have incredible minds, quick wits and smiles beyond measure! We are currently “country bumpkins”!

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a personal challenge. At times you want or try to rebel, but at times you need or want those boundaries placed. Elder Mervyn B. Arnold, Of the Seventy, shared a story of his wife's childhood during the October 2010 General Conference. One of his wife's responsibilities was to ensure the cows would stay within the fence and not breakthrough and eat the wheat. The cow eventually broke through the fence, ate too much wheat, bloated and died. This is Sister Devonna Arnold's own words about the fence, “As I thought about the role of the fence, I realized that it was a protection, just as the commandments and my parents’ rules were a protection. The commandments and rules were for my own good. I realized that obedience to the commandments could save me from physical and spiritual death. That enlightenment was a pivotal point in my life.” Upon hearing this talk, I reflected on my own youth, decisions made, consequences which followed and I gained clarity of what we are trying to teach our children. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has given me a direction in my life that is crystal clear! In our marriage, we can both go to our Heavenly Father in prayer and He guides our decisions regarding our little family. I love being married to someone who is worthy to hold the Priesthood in our home.  

How I live my faith

With full force! I am a leader of the Young Women, ages 12-18, in our congregation. We plan weekly activities to help the youth be anxiously engaged in great things. We encourage and help them with their Personal Progress goals to help establish patterns for life to set, plan, and accomplish goals. We also are in charge of their Sunday lessons to help them grow closer to Christ. Through the lesson manuals, general conference addresses, and scripture, we help them understand Gods Plan of Happiness!
