Hi I'm Melanie

I grew up in upstate New York. I'm a wife and mother of 4. I am going to school nights to become a teacher. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My parents are converts to the church. They were married with 3 children when they were introduced to the church by a stranger selling a bulldozer. He became a precious friend. I was the next of 8 more children born to my parents. I now live in Arizona with my Sweetheart of 21 years and 4 children. I returned to work when my youngest was 7. I work fulltime at a elementary school and am going to school nights to become a kindergarten teacher. My life is full and busy. I Love serving in the church, spending time with my family, singing, and I love finding a bargan!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church in a part of upstate New York where there were not a lot of members of the church. I had to make a choice at a young age whether I was going to follow the teachings of Christ or follow all the people around me. I am so thankful that I chose to follow Jesus Christ and keep the commandments. It has kept me safe and very happy. I Know where I came from, why I am here, and where I am going after I leave this earth. A great feeling of peace is in my life. I know My Heavenly Father knows me and loves me very much. I have felt his love and received his help MANY times in my life!

How I live my faith

I have taught the youth for 3 years now and have grown to love and appreciate their special spirits. I live my Faith by attending church every Sunday, Communicating with God through daily prayer, having Monday nights set aside for family where we teach about God and Jesus Christ and enjoy eachother. I try to be an example wherever I am, at work, in public and at home.
