Hi I'm Michelle

I am a scholar, operatic vocalist, business executive and belong to the classiest religion on earth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always related well to those who feel they do not fit in, which is one reason I appreciate so much the open minded doctrine of Mormonism. A scholar at heart, a vocalist, amateur photographer (I took this profile picture while standing in front of a mirror), poet, and passionate believer in strong families I spend my time acquainting my two young children in Italian opera, writings of Tolstoy and Dickens, and constantly seeking for self improvement and to lift the burdens of others. I am an avid world traveler, a business executive by trade, I love to find interesting things to cook, and spend much time working out at the gym and doing needlework. After being hit by a semi on the freeway while pregnant my life changed radically and the passionate faith I have always harbored in the reality of the doctrines of Mormonism pulled me through the trauma most doctors believed I could not survive.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the Church my cynical and curious nature kept my mind questioning everything regarding it. I studied for years attempting to find loopholes in the Book of Mormon and finally came to the conclusion that there existed no more rational explanation for its existence than the one Joseph Smith rendered. Moreover, there was always one point of Mormon doctrine that intrigued even my juvenile mind, which was the concept that we existed in the presence of God prior to our mortal births. There were a few people in my family who I instinctively knew I had known for a great expanse of time and when I looked into their eyes I could feel and and almost recall such an existence. Indeed, I prove quite grateful for Mormonism and the Book of Mormon particularly since my questioning mind had from my infancy difficulty in believing all the stories of the Bible. This second witness served as the testimony I needed in believing that Jesus indeed is the Son of God and that which the Bible teaches is factual truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in every instant of my life. The knowledge and passionate surety of the reality of this gospel fuels my interactions with others of other faiths and renders strength to live each day with the courage requisite to making a difference in this world. On a lesser scale, I lead the adult women's music in the women's meetings each week. But in truth I live my faith by living my life in a manner pleasing to the Lord and in that is my joy.
