Hi I'm Melissa

I'm a Mormon. I am a convert to the church, I am truly blessed.

About Me

I grew up in a very difficult situation and did not learn about the gospel until I was 37 yrs old. I am married to a wonderful man and have four beautiful children. I am currently homeschooling my 13 year old son and love it very much. I have a degree in Electronics and want to go back to school to be a nurse. I believe its never to late to follow your dreams and to set a good example for others. The church has blessed my life and given me a great feeling of love and knowledge that keeps me focused on working every day to strengthen my testimony and share with others the many blessings I have had touch my life.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young girl, my father moved away and never came back. This left my mother to raise both my brother and myself and with the help of our Grandparents we were able to struggle our way through some very difficult years. My Grandfather passed away in Jan. 2009 and at that time I felt loss for the first time since my Father had left. This pain was so great that I felt as if I would spiral out of control. I found myself in a deep depression and just as I felt I could not take another day, my husband (who never had any religion in his upbringing) brought home from work a Book Of Mormon. I questioned him why he would bring this book home and he told me that he had a feeling he should. I tried to read some of the first chapter but found it very hard to understand. We have a wonderful chiropractor who we have been seeing for several years, he felt more like family then our Dr. and I always knew he was a good family man. We asked him what church he was a member of and he told us, LDS. We asked if that was the Mormon church and he replied yes. We told him about the book we had and he instantly asked us to join him for church. We were somewhat surprised by this and I think he could tell so we ended up going to his house the following week to meet with the Missionaries. The first visit seemed very foreign to us but at the same time offered me a warmth in my heart. By the end of the second lesson, both my husband and myself knew that this was for us. On Aug, 1, 2009 we were both Baptized and from that moment on we have worked to keep strong in our faith and I have learned many lessons. My most important lesson is that even though my earthly father walked away, Heavenly Father has always been with me. I was never Fatherless just did not have the knowledge of what a wonderful blessing I had been given, I am a child of God and I will remain faithful and endure till the end.

How I live my faith

I am a visiting teacher and love visiting the other women in our church. I enjoy helping others every chance I get and am blessed to have my husband and son be involved and active members of the church
