Hi I'm Melissa Zushell Challis

I'm a writer and I'm a Mormon. I am a daughter of God and of mortal parents, a sister, and a wife.

About Me

I recently got married to the most amazing man in the world. I am working on my goal to be a travel writer and creative non-fiction novelist. I love to read, write, sing, dance, shop, watch sports and interact with people. Currently I am working for a hotel managing company in their HR department. Hoping to go back to school soon and get an MFA in Creative Writing. Enjoying life as it comes my way and overcoming any obstacles along the way.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I was lucky enough to be born with parents who sought out the truth and through their foundation I was able to build my own testimony of this wonderful gospel. Even though I have taken myself through some ups and downs I know through it all that my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me and so I show them my love by striving to be obedient. I am the most happiest when I am immersed in this gospel because at it's core lies charity, love, and kindness. Even through those rough patches in life I feel my Savior closest to me pushing me to become the best I can so that one day I may return to his presence.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by striving to live by the teachings of the gospel so that others may see my example and know that I am living for my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
