Hi I'm Melissa

I'm a student, a daughter, a friend, and a missionary. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am currently serving as a missionary in San Jose, California. I love teaching people about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and helping them develop a closer relationship with their Heavenly Father. When I return home I plan on finishing my studies at college and working as a nurse. I love to read, run, hike, watch movies, and eat popcorn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to have been born to parents who knew, and lived, the Gospel. I have seen how being a member of the church has blessed my life as well as the lives of my family and friends. I chose to get baptized at the age of 8 because I knew then what I continue to know now: that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, who allowed his son Jesus Christ to pay for my sins so that if I follow his commandments, I may return to live with Him again. I know this church is true, I know the Book of Mormon is true, and I know that we are lead by a living Prophet today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the example of my Savior, Jesus Christ and try to do what he would have me do. I love serving as a missionary because I can dedicate all of my time and efforts to rendering service to the community as well as to individual persons. Living my faith means that I "walk the walk" and live true to the teachings I share with people.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

That's easy! We have a website LDS.org here you can learn more about what we believe in, how we live, and why we live the way we do. You could also call the Salt Lake City Temple Square. They have missionaries who love answering questions, they call also contact missionaries who live close to where you are so that you can personally ask them questions. 801-240-4872 Main 1-800-537-9703. If you don't like these methods, you could always Google Latter-Day churches near your area. Show more Show less
