Hi I'm Melissa

I love sports, music, writing....and I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I'm a college student majoring in Journalism. I LOVE playing sports! I started playing volleyball when I was really young and as I got older I started rugby and track. I am the youngest out of 3 kids. I have one sister and one brother...and they mean the world to me!

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family and until I was in high school I had no doubt about the church. High school brought many trials and heartache regarding both family & friends. During trials I thought that I could make it through life without God. I would shut others out and try to deny the things I knew to be true about God. That only led me to feel empty and alone. I always knew that God was real and that He loved me but I still struggled. I knew I needed to change. So I got down on my knees and begged God to guide me. That is when I started to feel a change in my life. I began reading my scriptures and attending the temple regularly. I am Mormon because it makes me truly happy! I cannot find so much joy anywhere else! God is real, and The Book of Mormon true! I've prayed about it and honestly know it!

How I live my faith

Faith is lived day by day. I know God wants me to be happy but I realize that it's hard when trials come; so I have made it a goal to find something beautiful about each day (especially on the days I feel the lowest). Doing so has strengthen my faith because I am now able so see God's hand in my life. Turning to God through all difficulties AND joy is the best way to know Him.
