Hi I'm Michelle

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying to become an Accountant. I am part of a family of four. I love watching movies, rock climbing, laser tagging, and reading. I also enjoy dancing and have been skydiving.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and until I really gained a testimony for myself, church didn't have as much meaning as it should. I went because my parents expected me to. As I got older, I started to pray and search out answers in the scriptures for myself. I have felt the Holy Ghost and the love of my Savior. I continue to follow this gospel because I know it's what Heavenly Father wants for me. I can become a better person by following the teachings of prophets and Jesus Christ. This gospel gives me something to work towards in my life. I know that Heavenly Father loves and has a plan for all of His children. He knows that I make mistakes and He is merciful enough to forgive me when I repent through the atonement. I know that life will not always be easy but that I will always have support through this gospel. I recognize that I have been very blessed because I know of His truths.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith everyday by reading scriptures and praying. My current calling in the Church is to teach the women in the ward once a month from a book entitled, "Teachings of Presidents of the Church: George Albert Smith". When I first got this calling, I was a bit intimidated by teaching, but I have found that I enjoy helping to facilitate discussion. I enjoy participating in church activities and socials. As a student at a Church-sponsored university, I have been able to hear wonderful messages that I know are inspired by the Holy Ghost in classes, church meetings, and devotionals (time set aside every week for all the staff and students on campus to hear thoughts shared by other church members) These messages help remind me what I should be working towards and provide a source of uplifting.
