Hi I'm Melanie

I was born and raised in Utah. My ancestors crossed the plains with the pioneers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Ogden Utah and I am the forth of seven children. I was married to Martin in the Provo Temple. We have been happily married for 25 years. I am the mother of two boys and one girl (20, 18 and 16 years old). Our family enjoys camping, hiking and playing games together.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into the church, as a young girl I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it to find out if it was true for myself. I felt deep in my heart through the promptings of the Holy Ghost that it was true. As I have grown my knowledge of the gospel has continued to increase. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and that through him the Gospel of Jesus Christ was restored. I also know that we are led by a Prophet of God today. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me.

How I live my faith

Each week I attend church services and partake of the sacrament. I visit members of our church and help them in anyway I can. I try to always live the principles that Jesus taught. I have served in the church as a teacher of young children and teenage girls. I am currently in charge of organizing activities for the ladies in our ward (local church).
