Hi I'm Melissa.

I am a mother of 5. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Unlike most Pittsburghers, I love change! I love new sights, new sounds, new food, new houses, new ideas. I enjoy traveling to new cities. I especially enjoy meeting new people. I also love to create and make EVERYTHING! I always have ideas for projects brewing in my head. I have way too many interests and not nearly enough time to enjoy them all. I especially love anything from by gone eras. I love shopping at estate sales, flea markets, church rummage sales, and garage sales. I love to rescue neglected little treasures and give them new life. I have five fun and interesting children, 2 girls, and 3 boys, who enjoy the hunt with me!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. It brings peace and joy to my life. My children and husband are so precious to me and I want to be with them forever. Through my membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and through obedience to God's commandments, I have a surety that I will be with my loved ones beyond this earth life. With this great knowledge I am able to put my own trials and tribulations into perspective. I realize that things of this world are only temporary, but that my family is forever.

How I live my faith

In our congregation I work with the children. They are amazing. I love their insights and loving nature. They are all children of God, and each so individual! I also assist my husband with missionary work. I love working with the full time missionaries and the people they are teaching. There is nothing more rewarding or spiritually uplifting, then seeing how the gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives!
