Hi I'm Melissa Cannon Spendlove

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to five beautiful active children, which makes me a soccer, swim, basketball, dance, piano, band, theater mom. I'm a mom to a soon to be Kindergartner, a tweener and 3 high schoolers and all their friends. I am a wife to a hard working handsome husband, who I love dearly. I am a sister to four crazy/wonderful brothers who make me laugh and I am a daughter to the best parents ever. I love my family. I love to run, take pictures, blog, read and be with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know how living the gospel of Jesus Christ makes me feel. His plan of happiness/salvation gives me hope and helps me learn and grow from the many difficult challenges that life gives me. I have felt my Saviors love for me and I know that I am a Daughter of a Heavenly Father who also loves me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being obedient. As my Heavenly Father wants me to be happy, I want my own children to be happy. So being obedient and making those choices that bring peace and happiness into my home is my life. I teach the young women in my ward. Again, another opportunity to be an example of obedience. I spend many hours preparing lessons and activities to help them know who they are and their purpose in life.
