Hi I'm Melissa!

I'm an RN in the ER. I am married to my best friend, and have the cutest baby boy in the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 23 years old. I am currently working as a registered nurse in the ER, and loving every minute of it. I am married to my best friend, and we just had our first baby. He is the cutest little boy in the world! I absolutely love playing sports, trying new recipes to cook, and spending time with my family. I have been to Mexico, Taiwan, and Thailand so far in my life, and would love to travel the rest of the world before I die. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church, but I have definitely gained a testimony of my own for it. Though it is not the easiest lifestyle to follow, I continue to live by its teachings because I have seen the change it brings to my life and the lives of others. I absolutely love feeling the Spirit in my daily life, and through the Spirit I have come to know that the gospel is true with all my heart. I know Jesus Christ atoned for every one of my sins, and that He would go through the Atonement all over again even just for me. I know I am a child of God and that we were sent here to prove ourselves and one day return to His presence. I know there is a living prophet on this earth and I love following his counsel! I am so grateful for the power of prayer, and the ability it gives me to communicate with my Father in Heaven on a daily basis. I know these things are true, and testify of them.

How I live my faith

My calling in our college ward is to be the "mother" of our family home evening group. My job is to plan an activity for the 24 people in my group each Monday night, in order to bring us closer to each other as well as closer to God. Sometimes we do fun things like play catch phrase, but other times we do things like service to the elderly in the area. I also do visiting teaching each month to two other girls in my ward. This means that I have a visit with them and share a short message about the gospel as well as bear my testimony. Being involved makes you feel closer to the Savior, as well as more of an influence in the lives of those around you whom you love.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Mormons believe that the family unit is the most important thing on the earth. The reason that we were sent to this earth was to be put into families, prove our obedience to our Heavenly Father, be sealed to our family members, and then live with them for eternity if we are obedient in this life. Mormons believe that through the ordinances of our holy temples, families can be sealed for eternity, and that the relationships within them can last beyond the grave. Show more Show less
