Hi I'm Melissa Ethington

I am a mom, wife, sister, volunteer, but most importantly a daughter of God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a woman who struggles to balance my children, my husband, and my own interests. I love to volunteer in my community in our schools, with Girl Scouts, and driving Mobile Meals. I struggle sometimes to remember that I am a woman above all my other roles - I work on that daily!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior. I know that this gospel has given me the best plan to support my life and my family. Without it I would be lost. It is our best chance to stay together and united as a family. I am grateful for the prayers that are answered daily in my life - sometimes I miss seeing it and can only reflect on it later but I know it happens - every day! I am so grateful for the direction and peace being a member of this church brings to my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be an example of Christ's love through kindness, service, and generous compassion. Everyday I think, what would this person think of our Savior's love after meeting me. Sometimes I know I am doing great and other times I work harder!
