Hi I'm Melinda
I love life! Dance has always been my passion. I will dance all day, every day! I've been lucky enough to be able to dance in front of stadiums full of people. It was the best experience ever! Besides dance I am also aiming for a degree in radiology. I love science and anything medical. I love photography and planning weddings! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the guitar and music! I love being random and spontaneous! I am the oldest of six kids. My family loves going to football games together! We love to travel around the USA together to support our favorite teams as they play. But most of all I love life and the many, crazy, wonderful people that I meet along the way!! :)
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon, because it's what makes me the most happy. There comes a point in life where you evaluate the way you are living and where life is taking you. I know that when I am living the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that is when I have the most joy in my life. I wouldn't be happy any other way.
How has the Book of Mormon brought you closer to God?
The Book of Mormon has helped me see the love that God has for each of us individually. It shows and reminds me that God NEVER forgets his children. He is no respector of persons. He has and always will give us the guidance we need to get us through the hard times. As I read the experiences from people of the past, it helps me to realize the blessings that God had given me in my own life. As I see these blessings, I aslo realize that my relationship with God becomes stronger. I know that the Book of Mormon will bring you closer to God than any other book ever could.
How I live my faith
I currently am living my faith by serving as a full time missionary. I think that when you see how the gospel has changed your life, you want to share it with all that will listen and more! I also live my faith by staying positive and loving everyone I meet. I don't let the past haunt my outlook on life. I know that the Atonement is real and that life is now better then ever before. I also try to show my faith through my words and deeds. I try to never hold back when it comes to sharing the things that I know are true!
