Hi I'm Melani Parker

I am a farmers daughter, aspiring author, music guru, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. My passions include reading, writing, music, sports, and life in general. I have an exceptional family and impeccable friends. I love to be outdoors and go on all sorts of crazy adventures. Some of which have been skydiving, running a half marathon, hiking Zion’s National Park, touring southern Italy and Greece, and many more yet to come!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church all growing up. I have always had a firm belief in Jesus Christ and His Love for me. I gained a testimony of the Church when I was ten years old. My best friend at the time was my grandpa. He passed away a month after my tenth birthday and that sent my young heart searching to find out where he was. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to really know that it was true. I felt a beautiful peace come over my young heart, this was the Word of God, this was truth. I know that I can be with my Grandpa, Savior, and my Heavenly Father again! I know this because of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Which was restored by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ through the Prophet Joseph Smith. Anyone who has the desire to know, can know just like I did. All you have to do is search, ponder, and pray!

How I live my faith

Faith is an action word. When you have faith in Jesus Christ you are willing to think, speak, and do all that He asks. As you do these things your faith grows. Until you reach the point where you are able to embrace God's Will because it is your will. You become His disciple and experience a joy that is not only resplendent but everlasting. The task is getting to this point, and embracing God's Will in all things. This is something that I am striving for everyday.
