Hi I'm Michelle

I am from Provo Utah, I am a wife, I dance and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, UT and grew up loving musicals. This led me into performing. I have been in school for a few years majoring in Dance Education with the expectancy to teach dance in high school. However, I'm stopping short to fulfill my real dream of being a wife and eventually a mother. I married my wonderful husband in 2013. He is currently working full time and being a student full time. We have decided that he and I will work full time to stabilize ourselves a little more and just keep moving on with life. I love to do active things like sports, hiking, horse back riding, biking and dancing as well as anything to do with performing. I come from a family of 4 children, a mother and a father. I am the youngest. I enjoy doing all I can to lift others around me, helping them through rough trials or simply sharing my testimony.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the joy, love, comfort, strength and happiness it brings to me. Without my religion and the Lord in my life I wouldn't have made it through some of the trials our Heavenly Father has blessed me with. I truly believe that everything we go through on earth is all for our benefit and learning. Through God's pure love we can learn all things he would have us know about ourselves and our purpose. I have seen the blessings of God go out to so many people and continue to notice more everyday. He has given us so much love and care and I intend to do all I can to repay him.

How I live my faith

I faithfully attend church every week and often have the opportunity to teach Primary. Primary is what all of the children ages 4-12 go to on Sundays. The children are split into classes depending on their ages. My husband and I teach CTR 4. The children in our class are 4 or 5 years old. We start out with sharing time, where all of the children ages 3 to 6 get to sing songs, play games and have small lessons all based around Jesus Christ and his church. We then split off into our respective classes where we teach a certain topic of the gospel to the children. The older primary kids have class with their teachers first and go to sharing time after class. My husband and I love teaching primary. The kids are so fun and full of life. It's so rewarding to see them begin to understand something or to teach them something new. They are so receptive and I love the thought that I am helping them to grow closer to Christ, even at such a young age.

Are Mormons Christians?

Michelle
Yes. Without a doubt. We do our best to emulate Christ and follow all of his teachings. We strive to bring the full knowledge of Christ and his love for all of us to others. Our lives are centered on Christ. He is a beloved son of God sent to this earth by Heavenly Father to prepare the way for all of us to return to our Father in Heaven one day to live with him forever.

What do Mormons believe about the Holy Ghost? Who is the Holy Ghost?

Michelle
We often refer to the Holy Ghost simply as the Spirit. The Holy Ghost is a being. He is described as a personage of Spirit, for he does not have a body, but he is his own person working alongside our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Every living person can have experiences with the Holy Ghost whether or not they are baptized. The difference is that when a person is not baptized they do not have the constant gift of the Holy Ghost with them at all times, but when they are baptized and confirmed into Christ's church they are able to have the Spirit dwell with them always. The Holy Ghost comforts, guides, loves and makes truth known unto us among many other things. Through the Holy Ghost we are able to partake of the light of Christ. The Holy Ghost is a very important being in all of our lives. Show more Show less
