Hi I'm Michelle

I'm a single mom. I homeschool my children. I work from home. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single home-schooling mom of 4. We love to take nature hikes, go to art, science, or history museums, watch movies, and enjoy music - either listening or playing. I work from home as a technical support agent. I'm an avid reader, spend some of my spare time playing on my computer, and love to do just about anything that can be done with a needle or hook and thread or yarn.

Why I am a Mormon

I spent my youth with feelings in my heart that no one around me truly understood. My family would ask me 'Where do you come up with these ideas?' As a young mom, I moved to Utah. Those first 5 years, I listened to much to popular propaganda. I was surrounded by a community of wonderful people - but I was unwilling to learn about their faith - I spent my time searching and researching other religions trying to find the right one to raise my child in. I felt a strong urge one day to ask one of my neighbors I had a close relationship with about Her church. So, I sat down with her, relayed to her the feelings I had all my life, the things I believed. Astoundingly (for me) - I discovered that all my beliefs and all my feelings were shared by her , and her church. There was a short period of being taught by the missionaries before I, and my husband at the time, were baptized. I have a firm testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ as contained in the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible. I believe in the power of the Holy Ghost to give comfort. I believe Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God, and that we have a living prophet on the earth today.

How I live my faith

Every morning, my teenage children wake early to go to Seminary - early morning devotion classes. We begin every school day reading a chapter from our scriptures - the Bible, the Book of Mormon, or the Doctrine and Covenants - and a prayer. Every Wednesday, we travel to church for young men and young women activities for my teenagers. Those Wednesdays also include either Achievement Nights for my youngest daughter - I am an assistant in that class, or I volunteer in the Family History Center - where I help other people work on their family trees and genealogy. Every Sunday, after attending Sacrament and Sunday school, I play piano for the women's class.
