Hi I'm Melissa

I'm a young single adult caught in the middle of the ride. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! My name is Melissa, and I'm a young single adult. I'm taking some time off of school right now where I study molecular biology to work and earn money. I stay busy with work, but in my free time I like to have game nights with my friends, spend time with my family, play the piano, hike, and go on adventures! Seriously road trips might be my favorite thing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is Jesus Christ's church, the same one He set up when He lived here on earth. I know this because as I have studied the Book of Mormon, prayed, and asked God, I have felt great peace and power enter into my life. As I try to keep God's commandments every day, the hard things in my life are easier to handle. I know this is possible through the power of Jesus Christ's sacrifice. I know through Christ, I can live with God again, and with my family forever. This makes me so happy. As I grow to love Jesus Christ, I have a greater desire to serve Him by serving His children, and sharing with them the peace and joy that comes from living His gospel.

How I live my faith

I am a member of a Young Single Adult Ward- a group of young single adult Mormons that worship together and meet together for activities. We have an activity almost every night! There's almost always food. I teach a gospel doctrine class on Sundays, and I am also the education counselor in our women's organization, which means I make sure we have someone to teach the women's class on Sundays. So I stay pretty busy! Working hard and playing hard!
