Hi I'm Michella

I'm a mother and a grandmother. I'm a wife and a friend. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

After supporting my husband's career for 25 years, I just went back to school and am a college Freshman! I love painting walls and furniture. We have lived in the west, mid-west, south east, and east. I love to go camping and can make a mean dutch over cobbler.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. During my teenage years it gave me direction and meaning. While many of my friends were unsure of what was right and wrong, it was never a question for me. My personal relationship with Heavenly Father and Christ has given me a source of strength that continually guides me. I have been so blessed by the knowledge of who I am, where I came from, and where I am going. There was no defining moment in my life in which I gained a testimony of the church. I have always known it was true. Prayer and application of gospel principles only solidified my knowledge. As a mother of teenagers, I am so grateful for the guidance I receive from my Heavenly Father. I could not imagine raising teens in today's world without the grounding principles of the gospel. We have moved around quite a bit for my husband's job. With every move, we have found instant acceptance and love from other members of the church. No matter where we go we know we will always be welcomed, accepted, and loved. My family is the single most important thing to me. They are my greatest possession. And I know that if we strive to do what is right and to follow the commandments, we can be together forever. That makes me very, very happy.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in everything I do and try to be an example to those around me. I have friends of many faiths and I do my best to support them in their good works. I love working with the youth and have had the opportunity to teach teenagers not only in my church, but also in our local high school. Currently I teach the women in our church one Sunday a month. I love to study the lessons and interact with the other women as we discuss ways to apply what we learn in our daily lives. It is my hope that as I live my life according to my faith, I am an example to those around me and support them as they follow their faith and beliefs.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Mormon women are just like other women in today's world. They can be mothers, homemakers, business professionals, or anything they put their mind to. Absolutely men and women are equal! Show more Show less
