Hi I'm Melinda Kay

I'm a student, a florist, and a cookie baker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in New Jersey, but I've grown up on the beach in San Diego, Ca. I have four sisters and we are a very loud and loving bunch. In high school I was Editor in Chief of the Yearbook. In college I've become interested in graphic and interior design. I love to dance and enjoy laughing every day. I enjoy making and eating all kinds of cookies. I am a florist and LOVE to arrange flowers for weddings. Planning and decorating for weddings is my passion.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion to understanding, living, and loving the Gospel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was not a significant experience in physicality; instead it was one of the most joyful and inspiring moments of my young life. My ability to know a plain and precious truth was the result of a child’s lifetime dedication and a particular instant of responsiveness. I was raised in an active Later-Day Saint family. Church teachings have been a part of my daily life since infancy. In High School I realized I had never asked the Lord about the promise in Moroni 10:4 – “And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost.” It was a cool spring morning when I finally asked. The the sunlight reached my eyes: I emerged out of a physical and spiritual shadow and saw the rays of sun fill the garden and my heart. I heard the giggles, and I noticed the children skipping, running and squealing for joy. I saw an older sister comforting a toddler. I saw the oldest and most devoted couple holding hands. I watched the flowers bob and the palm trees sway in the soft breeze. You already know. You’ve always known. It is true. Look at the joy here in front of you. Look at the joy in your heart. This is the happiness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Embrace it as you always have. My swelling heart began to glow as the light penetrated my soul. I know.

How I live my faith

I live everyday with a smile. I look for the little miracles. I do what is asked of me not because I was told, but because I want to. My soul is filled with joy as I say Hello to someone gloomy. I feel the warmth of service as I volunteer. I try to show how happy the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me. I am currently serving as a Missionary, because I want others to feel the glory and light of Jesus Christ.
