Hi I'm Melinda Welch

I grew up in Utah and married my high school sweetheart. I am a mother, a blogger and a chocoholic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a Mormon my entire life. I was raised in the church. I met, waited for while he served an LDS mission, and married my high school sweetheart. We have been married almost 30 years and have 5 beautiful children. I love being a wife and mother. We enjoy weekly family nights, going to Bear Lake, spending time at the pool and being in stage shows together. I find great joy in performing on the stage in Musical theatre productions. I love to sing and act and do choreography. I knit and paint and do all sorts of crafts and handiwork. I have been a school teacher for 20 years teaching High School Drama, Speech and Debate. Currently I am an online school teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I know God lives and loves me. I know he hears me and answers me when I pray. I know his son, Jesus Christ, is my redeemer and that he died for me that I may live eternally one day. I know that families can be together forever. I know the sealing power of the temple is real. I love this gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I work with the Young women in my church, ages 12- 18. I love teaching them about Jesus Christ and how to be better people by following his example. I have three sons who have served missions for our church. They go and teach others about Jesus and the Book of Mormon and the restoration of the true gospel in our day.
