Hi I'm Michelle

I am a daughter, sister, and friend. I am a registered nurse. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at college, studying nursing. I just recently became a registered nurse. I love people! I love helping others and reaching out to them. I love what I do! I love to be outside, to play, and to have a good time. I love the time I get to spend with my family and the chance to meet new people and gain new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love this Church! I am the person that I am because of it. The Gospel makes every aspect of my life better. It gives meaning and purpose in my life. It brings me real happiness and joy, even when challenges and struggles happen. I know that this is the true Church. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and that our Heavenly Father knows each of us individually and personally. We are never, ever forgotten by Him. He listens to us every time we pray, and he answers those prayers in His own way and His own time. He gives us trials and struggles to strengthen us and to help us grow. I know from personal experience that trials are really blessings in disguise, because they make us better. The Book of Mormon is the word of God, it is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that it was translated by Joseph Smith through the gift and power of God. I know that we are led today by a living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. As we follow his counsel we will continually be protected. This Gospel means everything to me, without it I would be completely lost. It is the greatest and most wonderful blessing in my life. My testimony is one of the most precious things that I possess.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through service to others. This comes in so many different ways. I feel that a smile is a simple act of service that can lift up another person and that is one way I try to reach out. I try to simply take time to listen to others who may be struggling and just let them know I care. Service does not have to be big or elaborate, it just has to be sincere. I visit teach sisters in my ward. I am just beginning to really understand what visiting teaching is about. It gives me the opportunity to get to know someone I might not originally get to know. And it gives me the opportunity to make new friends and to touch other people's life and for them to touch mine. There are so many people out there struggling and in need, and reaching out to them has truly brought me happiness. I hope to give back to others what they have given to me!
