Hi I'm Sister-Michelle Graham

I love to sing. I love life. I'm a missionary! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love music, whether I make the music or someone else is, it's great! I enjoyed choir in high school so much, and gained wonderful experiences socially and musically. I sing and play the piano. I started to learn to play the guitar while I was at college, which was so much fun! I hope to make an impact with my talents and my love of music. My family make me so happy and are my friends. It's great to have my home be my sanctuary. I love my family! I love to learn and like to travel. I hope to do more traveling in the future. I am serving a full time mission in Jacksonville, Florida. I will be serving this mission for 18 months. I am teaching people about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As a missionary, my purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ, by helping them receive the restored gospel through Faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, Baptism, Repentance, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. I want people to be happy! I know that true happiness and peace comes from this gospel. I'm excited! I love to share the gospel with others and am always up for new and challenging questions. I love being a missionary!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. I know that this is the right path for me. Heavenly Father loves me and all his children. I am a child of God. I don't think I would be quite as happy as I am, if I didn't have this gospel. I cannot be moved on my beliefs because I know that they are true. Having a loving Heavenly Father who hears and answers my prayers is reassuring for me. Because even when I am having a hard time, and nothing seems to make me feel better, I know that I can receive comfort and support through prayer.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission, sharing the gospel with the people of Florida. I live my faith by following Christ' example. I want to be more like Him. So I seek for opportunities to serve and to love. I go to church to be uplifted and to get a spiritual re-charge for the week. Prayer is so important to me, having that relationship with God helps me in all aspects of my life. I know that I can be strengthened and blessed by Christ' Atonement(or his sufferings and sacrifice). All things can be made right through the Atonement. We can be changed, I am able to exercise faith by repenting and allowing Christ to help me to change.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

Sister-Michelle Graham
There aren't any restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join the church and have the priesthood. Heavenly Father loves his children from every part of the world. He wants everyone to enjoy the blessings of this gospel, including the blessings of the priesthood. Show more Show less
