Hi I'm MaLese

I grew up in Utah. I'm a university graduate. I'm a stay at home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a BYU graduate with a degree in Family History and Genealogy. I'm also a stay at home mom with three adorable and rambunctious little children! I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we've been together for over four years now! I love to play basketball, softball, and volleyball. I love to sing and I really want to learn how to play the piano. I'm also trying to learn Spanish and I'm developing the art of "paper-piecing" or creating artwork with tiny pieces of paper. I live in Utah for the mountains in the spring and fall, but mostly to be near family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is the true word of God, along with the great words of the Bible. I have studied its words and have received a personal witness of its divinity! Because of this and other personal witnesses thereafter, I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the church of God here on earth today. It truly is the same church that Christ established among men when He was on the Earth! Why wouldn't I belong to this amazing religion?

How I live my faith

I mostly live my faith through my everyday actions: taking care of my kids, helping those that i can, striving to always be kind and accepting, and ultimately trying to follow Jesus Christ's magnificent example! But I have also served within the Church in several different positions, including visiting with and ministering to women in the area, working with the nursery children, and planning various activities for women in the church.
