Hi I'm Michele

I am a work-from-home mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, niece, aunt, teacher, coach, follower of Christ. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a 38 year old Arizonian who loves football season, reading, chick-flicks, all kinds of music, and time with my family and friends. I have been blessed with two boys, so it is a good thing I do love sports! I spent most of my childhood in a hot, sweaty gym and loved anything to do with gymnastics. In High school, I played sports and participated in an exchange program to Germany. I am so grateful for those amazing experiences. I grew up in the Methodist Church and have a great appreciation for the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ that I gained there. I taught High School English for 8 years. I decided I would like to try to start my own business on the side. After a year of doing both, I decided to stop teaching and start a family with my husband. I have been a blessed and happy work-from-home mom for the last 10 years. Working from home has allowed me to keep my Faith first, my family second and my career third. I find that when things are in that order, I am happiest! I am grateful for my faith and the clarity that it provides to me. I believe it helps me to be a better version of myself and keeps my focus on the most important things in life.

Why I am a Mormon

4 In college I experienced the loss of someone I loved and it lead me to question a lot about life? Why are we really here and what is the purpose of this life? My good friend shared some scriptures with me that had helped her to find answers to these same questions. I began reading the book of Mormon and learning answers to my important questions. Thru prayer, I realized the truthfulness of it's words. I began going to church and learning more and as I did I felt as though I was remembering what my soul already knew. I was baptized 16 years ago and often wonder how I would possibly navigate this challenging world without the restored Gospel in my life. My love for my Savior has grown exponentially and I know that he is who he said he is and that he can do all that he said he could do. He is our redeemer and our advocate with the Father and he paid with his life for each of us. I rejoice in the knowledge that because of my Him I will be able to live with him and the Father again. I grew up with wonderful parents who taught me the importance of honoring your word, honoring your family and friends and being true to yourself and those around you. Because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that our relationships extend beyond this life and I find my purpose in building those relationships that will last forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church, reading my scriptures, praying, participating in service, having regular family time, reading, learning from our living apostles and Prophet, doing my visiting teaching and teaching my children about the Lord's plan of Happiness.
