Hi I'm Melanie

I'm a Texan grandma. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a grandma who lives in Texas with my husband of 41 years. We have 6 children and 7 grandchildren, whom we adore and spend as much time with as possible. I'm a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and enjoy genealogical research, history and swimming.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was 4. When I was a teenager, I read the Book of Mormon for the first time, and prayed to know if it was true. I know it is written under inspiration of God, and that this Church is under the direction of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My husband, who is bedridden, and I love to read the scriptures together every day. He is able to teach, from his bed, the 12-year-old boys on Sundays, and I am able to teach the women in our congregation. Mostly we love to help people in any way, knowing that "when ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (the Savior).
