Hi I'm Melanie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the sunshine! I love going for a walk each morning with my friends. I live in Arizona where we are blessed with mostly sunny days. I am married, I have 4 children and 3 grandchildren. My youngest son is serving a mission in Morristown, New Jersey and he is the happiest that he has ever been. My favorite times are when we are together as a family. I work part time doing customer service for an airline. I am surprised how much people appreciate small kindnesses. I try to live the golden rule and treat others how I would want to be treated.

Why I am a Mormon

I did not grow up in an active family but I had amazing friends that always took me to church. I am forever indebted to them and their families. It was my choice to be involved in the church. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints is true and is lead by a living prophet. I know that Christ atoned for all of our sins and shortcomings, we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and wants to bless us. Through prayer we can gain strength to do things that are hard or gain peace when painful things happen to us. We are meant to have joy in this life and I know it comes from living the gospel.

How I live my faith

I teach the women from the words of our prophet and apostles as well as from the Bible and Book of Mormon. We share how we can become more like Jesus Christ and strengthen our families. We lift one another and help each other when needed. I know that women are loved by Heavenly Father and can be a force for good in this world. By being modest and virtuous we honor God.
