Hi I'm Michelle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full time student at studying Computer Forensics. I have a dog named Moose who I love, I have fibromyalgia, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, with my mother being baptized while she was pregnant with me. We learned about the gospel together, and that foundation has helped me have a love for this church, for the Temple, for my Heavenly Father, and for my earthly family.

How I live my faith

I am in a Young Single Adults Branch where I am the first counselor in the women's organization. I help with the education of our sisters, assisting those who teach the lessons. I am also in charge of service projects in our branch, and help to organize opportunities for us to serve our community.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Michelle
No, Mormons are not required to serve a mission. For those young men who are 19 years old it is a privilege to serve, and it is suggested that they serve a full-time mission if they are able. Women are able to serve a mission once they are 21 years old, but it is a personal decision for every person whether they should go on a mission. Older married couples are also able to serve if they wish. Show more Show less
