Hi I'm Michelle Summerhays

I love dancing in the rain, singing at the top of my lungs, I am on a mission in Arizona, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Michelle, I love my family, spontaneous moments, hiking, and good friends. I feel so lucky to have this amazing gospel in my life. I am on a mission to share this gospel with others.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because there is nothing in this world that could give me more happiness. I feel the spirit strongly in my life when I do the things that the Lord would have me do. I love going to the temple, going to church, attending institute, singing hymns, listening to the prophets, reading scriptures, and praying. I cannot imagine doing anything that would make me happier. There was definitely a time where I needed to find out for myself. I took Moroni's challenge (Moroni 10:3-5 pg. 529, The Book of Mormon) and the promise in the introduction to the Book of Mormon was fulfilled. "We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true. Those who pursue this course and ask if faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost."(The Introduction to the Book of Mormon (paragraph 8) I testify that this works. I have seen it for myself. This church really is true and it can change your life for the better if you let it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a constant example. I act as if Christ is with me always. I do not want to do anything that would offend him. People notice that I am the kind of girl that sometimes walks out of a movie, or changes the song on the radio. These choices help me to live my life closer to the savior. By doing this I have found that I live my life in happiness.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Michelle Summerhays
You can know that Mormonism is true by prayer. Sincerely ask Heavenly Father with an open heart if the Mormon church is true. After you pray stay on your knees for a little while and listen. Listen for a feeling within yourself, a feeling that is quiet, peaceful, and undeniable. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Michelle Summerhays
Yes! Absolutely yes! I declare that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet. He is the mouthpiece of the Lord. When we follow the prophet we are happier, safer, and closer to the spirit. If you are unsure about if President Monson is a prophet I invite you to pray, and then listen or read something from President Monson. After listening/reading take a minute to pray and really pay attention to the feelings that come into your heart. When this is done with real intent, the knowledge will be given to you that like Moses in ancient days there is a living prophet today. Show more Show less
