Hi I'm Michelle

I'm a wife & mother to four beautiful children - 3 girls & a boy. I am also an attorney for a healthcare company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the proud mother of 3 beautiful girls and a handsome son. I went to Brigham Young University for my undergrad in poli sci and social work. I went to University of Pittsburgh School of Law for law school. I met my husband my last semester of law school and married him a year later in the Washington, DC temple. I work for a large healthcare company part time and spend all my free time with my children at the local swimming pools and sporting events. I love to watch my little girl play soccer and my son play baseball. I love to read and play the piano. The most fun we have as a family is playing card games and Disney Scene it. We also enjoy playing the wii (Mario Cart is our favorite)! We love to go to the park, play catch, and take the wave runner to the lake. I teach in the nursery at church and work with the youth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am the sixth of seven children and my parents are both descended from Mormon Pioneers. I grew up in a strong Mormon family, moving all over the United States with my dad's job. I knew from a young age that I was blessed to be in my family. I had a mother who stayed home to raise us and a father who worked hard to support us. But most importantly, I had the knowledge that I was a child of God, that I had been sent here for a purpose, and that if I lived a good life, I could return to my Heavenly Father again. I have always known that if I die, I will live again and be with my family forever. I know that Joseph Smith prayed for help to know which church to join, and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ came to him and told him to join none. I know that he saw and translated plates of gold and brass to bring the stories and guidance of those who lived hundreds of years ago to those who live now through the Book of Mormon. I know that through his sacrifice I have been able to come to know Heavenly Father and his Son, Jesus Christ, to marry my eternal sweetheart in the temple for time and all eternity, and to raise up strong and righteous children to the Lord. I know that Heavenly Father hears and answers prayers. I know he knows ME by name and helps me to conquer my weaknesses and share my talents. I know that He will forgive me when I ask and hold me up when I am lost and afraid. I know He loves me and will always be there to guide me in my life. I know Thomas S. Monson is the only living Prophet on this earth and that he guides the church in these latter days. I know that if I follow his guidance, I can see my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth in my church. For several years I was a teacher for the 14 & 15 year old girls. Now I teach the nursery children, those that are 18 months to 3 years. I LOVE THE YOUTH!
