Hi I'm Michelle

I am from Arizona and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in Arizona, born and raised there. I enjoy music, such as piano and singing. I teach piano, and hope to teach for many years. I plan to further my education to become a psychologist. I have recently received my mission call to the Mexico, Queretaro mission and I leave this April of 2014. I could not be more excited to be able to experience what I have seen many other experience. To go on a journey and devote my time to The Lord will be such a blessing. I have the opportunity to share what I believe to be true, and represent The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love this gospel, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for various different reasons, but the one that centers all of them together: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. I have found this for myself. While on my knees praying to my Heavenly Father, I asked him whether or not this church I am a part of is true. I had an overwhelming feeling come upon me of peace and happiness, immediately answering my question, it is indeed true. One part of this church that I love: The Atonement, it is beautiful. Jesus Christ gave us his all, he suffered for all of our sins while at Gethsemane. He made it possible for us to return to him and our Heavenly Father. If we repent of our sins with an earnest heart, Heavenly Father forgives us and remembers them no more. It is as if we have never sinned in the first place. How incredible is that? Another reason why I am a Mormon is because of the teachings of self worth. I have been taught that I am a child of God, who loves me. To know that there is a higher power on this Earth gives me peace. Heavenly Father never leaves us, He watches out for us, cares for us. We can communicate with Him through prayer. I know that He hears and answers our prayers. For He knows best, and knows what the future will and can hold for us. Why not ask? Why not listen? Why not confide in him? He knows our troubles, our heart aches. He takes the time to listen to each and every one of us, whether it be the good or the bad. I know through Him, all things are possible.

How I live my faith

As of right now, I am preparing to serve a mission, and I am living my faith by doing and being the best I can to serve my Heavenly Father.
