Hi I'm Melissa Gordon

I am a stay at home Mom and I Love It ! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a stay at home Mom. I love the outdoors, hiking, biking, camping, rock climbing. I love to exercise and eat healthy. I love to spend time with my family, we love being together. I grew up in an inactive LDS home and went to church most of the time by myself. I love the gospel and the peace I feel from being a member. I know who I am and where I'm going and I know my family can be together forever. That is what is important in life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because that is what makes me happy. We live in a confusing world and the only true peace can come from living gospel principles. I see the path family members have taken that doesn't lead to true happiness. I have also seen the joy from some who have come back into the gospel. That is the joy I feel everyday. I love my Savior Jesus Christ, he is my true friend who has led me to a path of peace and happiness. I know this is his gospel and if I choose to follow him I can return to live with him and my family forever.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by serving in my ward. I teach kids the gospel. I love teaching children because they have such a loving quality about them. I teach them from the scriptures and about Jesus Christ. We sing together and learn. I do this every Sunday and I love it. I also vist ladies in our ward and teach them about the gospel. I'm their friend and I'm aware of their needs. I visit some older sisters who I learn so much from. I also homeschool our girls. I help them with their classes and do projects with them. We go on fun field trips together and meet other people. I love people and love to serve. I spend most of my time serving my family, with helping with homework, cooking, counseling and many other things.
