Hi I'm Michelle

I am a missionary in the California Roseville Mission. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the great state of New York. I am a Recreation Management major at Brigham Young University in Rexburg Idaho. I love to go running. I am a marathon runner. It is my goal to run a marathon in every state, and hopefully one outside of the country. I love the outdoors and love staying active. I am currently serving as a full time missionary in the California Roseville Mission. I love sharing with people what I know and love. The gospel has truly made me happy and I want to tell the world that! I love hanging out with friends and family, and being in nature.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it has brought me so much happiness- more than I could have ever imagined. I grew up in the Church but never had a firm testimony of the gospel until I went to college. It was there that I was surrounded by people that were so happy, and I wanted that. I could feel the happiness that they had, and I knew that the gospel was what I was missing in my life. Overtime, I did everything I could to gain a testimony. I went to Church, I prayed, I read the scriptures, I listened to my leaders, and fell upon my knees in an earnest desire to fill my heart with true happiness. I got what I wanted. I received that testimony that I desperately needed, and I continue to strengthen it everyday now. Eventually I felt prompted to serve a mission because I knew that my testimony of the Atonement, and of Jesus Christ could help brighten the lives of those around me. I want to share with the world the true happiness I know and feel everyday of my life. Sharing the gospel brings so much joy to my heart and I want to share it with all who "know not where to find it."

How I live my faith

I decided to go on a mission because the gospel truly made me happy. I want those around me to have the same great feeling that I have and that is what I love about being a missionary. Having a Christ centered life is the key to being truly happy. I love to be of service to those around me, and it really helps me be a better person. It always brightens my day when I can make someone laugh or see someone smile. "The Lord’s way is the only way for us to experience enduring happiness", Russell M Nelson, a living apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ once said this. I know that when we live the way the Lord would want us to we have that incomprehensible joy that we all desire.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will help you develop faith in our Savior Jesus Christ, and help you recognize Heavenly Father's love for you and your family. They will share with you a message of the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. They will help you understand your purpose in this life and to show you the Lord's way. Missionaries come to your home to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.
