Hi I'm Melody

I am mormon. I grew up in the south. I am a friend, a sister, a daughter, a wife, and mother of three amazing human being.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of 3. I love to cook and I love to eat even more! I love spending time in outdoor activities with my family, or anything with my family. Reading is a passion of mine and I have been known to read through the night and well into the morning to finish a novel. I also like to paint and refinish furniture. I love to create! People really interest me. I like to observe people and watch them. I get strange looks sometimes because it seems like I am staring. I just like watching people because everyone is so different. I think it's so neat how Heavenly Father made us all so unique. We all have something special to offer!

Why I am a Mormon

I believe very strongly in God's plan for us to be happy. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and love being a part of his work. I have a strong testimony of forgiveness and compassion! I owe him a debt that I will forever be unable to repay. The best way to even try, I believe, is to follow him in word and deed. I have the opportunity to not only be a Christian on Sunday, but every day by living the teachings of Christ. Faith, Hope and Charity are 3 things I try and cling to every day. It's hard to stay the course in such a self-serving world, but I believe if I stay strong and pray always and do the things my Heavenly Father wants me to do, it will all pay off in the end.

How I live my faith

Attending church on Sundays and attending various activities take top priority over anything else in the lives of me and my children right now. Life is so hectic with 2 teens and a middle schooler. We do try to have our family nights, read scriptures and pray together. Personal prayer and study is vital, since that's the best way to feel near to the Savior. I do my very best every day, and strive daily to do better than the day before. I love to go out and visit people with our missionaries. I also like to visit people by myself and get to know them. Jesus loved everyone, and I feel it's my responsibility to do the same! If you need a ride to church, I'm your girl! Ha!
