Hi I'm Michelle Saskia

I am from Washington DC. I've always wanted to be a wedding planner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I received my bachelor's degree two years ago and now I am working at a non-profit organization. I enjoy helping others and I try to do volunteer work every chance I can. My favorite volunteer job was helping a non-profit bridal shop. I helped brides who had a tight budget find their wedding dress and reception items.

Why I am a Mormon

For several years I had been going to non-denominational churches and I just felt lost. Then my father asked me if I would come with him to visit the Washington DC Temple Visitor's Center. Like the first time I invited God and Jesus Christ into my life, which happened during my college years, I just knew that this was the right thing to do. I got to meet a lot of really nice people, including the missionaries of the ward near by the temple. I received the Book of Mormon and soon I was attending meetings on my own with the missionaries.

How I live my faith

I work and live in places that don't typically practice the teachings of the church, but that doesn't stop me from reading my scriptures as much as possible and praying at anytime of the day. I know that I am blessed for getting baptized and I hope I can help others receive the blessings that Heavenly Father has given me.
