Hi I'm Michelle

About Me

I am a recent member of this amazing church. My son and I got baptized together on 01.01.11 it was the most emotional and spiritual moment of my life and I am blessed to take part of that with my son . I am a single mom of a outgoing loving 8 yr old. he is the apple of ,in or around my eye, which ever way that saying goes..lol.. I love to do decorate cakes and I hope to one day own and open my own little shop. I enjoy interior decorating as well , it this whole crafty thing that I am into a lot lately , But I also enjoy primitive camping , swimming and hiking with my little man . I enjoy spending time with my friends camping,talking , walking , eating or just watching a movie.. you name it WE DO it !! .I enjoy taking my son to scouts and to any church events :)..I love taking my son out in the rain(which is all the time in Oregon) and splash in the puddles , I enjoy doing anything that is fun :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know how unhappy and lost I was when i wasn't a Mormon. Before my baptism day I lived my life as I knew how, and well with what TOOLS(knowledge of life) I had, and let me tell you that is was a struggle from drug addictions, to ,in and out of jail and ultimately into wanting to take my own life.I started down this path at a VERY young age and so my habits I thought made me ,and did I ever find out different when I started taking the lessons from the Missionaries. And from the second lesson i felt like this is where I needed to be. You know that feeling you get when you have been away from HOME for a long time and then when you get there, you have an inner peace and calmness and like everything is OK now. well thats the feeling I had and with every lesson my LOVE grew. The information they were teaching me just MADE SENSE and CLICKED. I want to be apart of a plan that my time here on earth is a learning experience for me , its to help me become stronger and wiser and to be more like Jesus Christ in caring for one another. I want to be with my future husband FOREVER and Eternity, not until death do us part . I want to be able to be with my family forever. I want to be a role model for my next generation. I want to be forgiven for when I am being ME.. HUMAN and NOT perfect!!.. Just like i WANTED to stop smoking , drinking and using drugs, and with the LOVE and Faith that I have for My Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ I have what I WANT !!! and my friends THIS IS WHY I AM A MORMON !!!!!

How I live my faith

As a recent member I am honored to be Class President of our gospel Principles class. I really enjoy meeting and getting introduced to new members and visitors( that eventually turn into members :) ) ..I enjoy spending my Sabbath( Sunday ) with my family and friends and honestly NOT CLEANING ..thats a extra :) ..I live my faith by every day giving thanks and loving people the way not only I , but the way Christ would want to be treated !!

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

He is our Father in Heaven. We are created in His image (Genesis 1:27). He has a body that looks like ours, but God’s body is immortal, perfected, and has a glory that words can’t describe. Because we are His children, He knows and loves each of us individually. He has a plan to help His children find joy in this life and return to live with Him when this life is over.He truly LOVES us and dont wish to see us fall from him and if we do he dont PUNISH us forever .. He is great and My foundation to how i live my life :) Show more Show less
