Hi I'm Melissa

I'm Melissa! I love music and ballroom dancing. My friends and family are my life and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I LOVE to dance! I don't have many opportunities to dance when I am at home so when I can, I want to dance as much as I can. I have been involved with many different forms of dancing since I was 8 years old and that has enhanced my love of music as well. Music can uplift someone and help them to remember memories with family, friends and also places. Music can reach deep into your soul and bring so many emotions to the surface. I have also found that reading can take you to a whole new place and take you out of the world you may be living in. It is amazing to have books to pass the time. :) I am currently serving a mission for our church and I have learned so many wonderful things about the gospel. I know that the people that I am meeting are exactly who I need to teach. I have enjoyed bringing smiles to the individuals I have met and to watch their lives change as they have made commitments with their Heavenly Father and have come to understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ. My testimony of the healing power of the Atonement has helped me to see that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me so much and want me to come closer to them everyday of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both converted to the church in their 20's. I was born into the church and my parents raised me to believe in the church. I chose to continue to be a member because I knew that this gospel was true. All of the spiritual experiences that I had while reading my scriptures, saying my prayers, reading the lessons, listening to talks given, hearing other people say their testimonies and other things helped to strengthen my testimony and allow me to grow. I am getting ready to go on a mission and I cannot wait to go out and share this gospel with others so that they can know that this is the true church and a place where we can be with those who love and care about us will dwell.

How I live my faith

I choose to follow the example of Jesus Christ because I know that he is the one person who is absolutely perfect and who knows how to help us and that makes me happy. I am also happy because I am a member of this church. It makes me happy to know that I can be with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again. I want to be able to show my values and my love for this gospel through my words and my actions. I want to teach other people about this gospel and be able to answer any questions that they may have so that they can grow and I can grow at the same time and come closer to God.
