Hi I'm Melissa

I'm a stay at home mom who home school's her 4 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my four children and educate them at home. I have been married for almost 12 years. I am a homemaker. I am able to can fruit, and make my own jams and jellies. When I have the time to, I love to pull out my rubber stamps, ink, and paper to create cards, scrapbook pages and whatever else I can imagine. I have recently taken up the art of crochet again. I was taught how to crochet by my mother as a youth and just didn't do it for a very long time. I love to read the scriptures and a lot of fictional books. I love history, and I love to learn.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family who were Mormon. My parents weren't active through most of my growing up years, but if I wanted to go to church, they always made sure I could get there. The way I gained my testimony is just little by little. It wasn't an "ah ha" moment like a lot people have. Mine just came gradually. I remember as a young woman just knowing who I was, and where I was going and being grateful for that knowledge. Because I knew and still know that I am a daughter of God and that he loves me. I know that He knows who I am and the struggles and trials that I have. He knows the joys that I experience and I am so grateful for that knowledge.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by teaching my children gospel lessons in a weekly family night. We read the scriptures every day at least once a day as a family and we pray often. In my congregation, I worked with the young girls ages 12 to 18 for about a year. I helped them learn basic gospel principles as the Young Women Secretary in my ward. I helped keep track of their attendance, train the girls that are class secretaries, teach lessons, and many other things. I was released from that calling and since called to a new one. My new calling is the Relief Society Secretary in the ward. I do many of the same things in this calling as I did with the Young Women. Except, I don't have anyone to train under me. I will now be working with the women in the ward as well.
