Hi I'm Missy

I'm a wife, a mother, a student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to a beautiful baby boy. I am completing my Bachelors Degree in Sociology online and staying home taking care of my son. I love painting, drawing and would someday like to learn how to do glass work. I love playing soccer, Zumba and Yoga. I enjoy snowboarding with my husband and hope to teach our son when he is old enough. I also love to travel and have been to 8 countries in Europe. I can't wait to take my husband and my children!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to a different church every week. Sometimes my family would find a church that we attended for a few months at the most, but we were always looking for something that we never seemed to find. One day, the Elders knocked on our front door and my dad let them in (I was about 11). My father had grown up LDS but was inactive for my whole life. After a few months of taking the lessons, my whole family began going to church and my brother and I were baptized later that year. My father and brother have since left the church, but my mom and I have remained active. Growing up going to a lot of different churches was very confusing. Every Christian religion has different beliefs about things and it was very hard to find out the truth. When we started receiving the lessons, many of the questions I'd always had were answered and I felt the spirit testifying to me of their truthfulness. The truth of the matter is that everything the LDS church teaches makes sense and is for our good. I cherish my membership in this church.

How I live my faith

The month my husband and I were married we were called to be nursery workers in our ward. We enjoyed that calling for 2 years, until the birth of our son. We loved our calling as nursery workers! I am now currently serving as a Ward Missionary, helping the full-time Missionaries with whatever they may need. I am also a visiting teacher and enjoy this calling very much.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

I believe families are the most important part of our lives here on earth. We learn so much from our families, including patience, kindness and how to love and be loved. Our families give us many opportunities to grow and develop ourselves into the righteous people that we want to become. Families are an important part of God's plan. Show more Show less
