Hi I'm Michelle D Wilson

I'm a business owner. A mother of four and wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Lehi, Az. I have moved back to my child hood home with my husband and four children. My husband and I started a window cleaning company based on gospel principles. All four of my children and my self were baptized and confirmed together on one special day in 2006. We were sealed with my husband in the Mesa, AZ Temple one year later. I had been a Catholic in my childhood. I lived side by side in my rural community with a lot of Mormons. Decades later after a chance meeting at our children's school. It was through a childhood friend who put the wheels in motion. She was a true blessing to our lives at a time when my husband and I were overwhelmed with tribulation. My husband was prompted to call my friend to ask if we could talk to her Bishop for some guidance. Within two hours two gentlemen were in our living room offering a kind ear to our troubles. Sharing their testimonies and an invitation to Sunday service. This was the best blessing of our lives. Our troubles did not go away but the weight on our shoulders did. We were blessed that day when a little girl from Lehi grew up and became an instrument of God.

Why I am a Mormon

During the time that my family was taking classes from the missionaries my Father became very ill and was coming to the end of his life. I had been the baby of the family and daddy's little girl. It was through our lessons I was learning about the importance of family. More importantly that families can be together forever. My father told me that he was proud that we were taking the steps to baptism and knew it was a good thing for us. He had been Catholic all his life and was receiving communion at home and had received his last rites. None of my family came to our baptism. My Father passed four days later. I believe that through the hand of God I was blessed to know of his son Jesus Christ and the sacrifice he gave could lead my father to to a kingdom were I would be with him again. A place where he had no pain, a place that all of our family could reunite after leaving this life. It was through my confirmation that I recieved the gift of the Holy Ghost. Which was there to comfort my sorrow a few short days later. I began to grow spiritually through this experience. I had relied upon my faith many times since then. Growing my testimony of Jesus Christ and of his true church.

How I live my faith

I am active in the church and have been involved with the children in the church since I have become a member. I have been a Sunday school teacher to pre-kindergartners, a scout leader, a leader to all the children in my ward and am currently now participating in the blossoming of the toddlers in our ward. I know that I am a faithful servant and am blessed by what the children teach me. They are amazing, sweet spirits that touch my heart every week. I look forward to sacrament each week and am grateful for the ability to renew my covenants. I live my life as a child of God. Knowing of his love for each of us and feeling of it in my heart.I always try to do what is right. I am honest in my dealings, I am kind to others and help others when I can. I try to always do the things the Lord commands and can be forgiven for my short comings if I simply ask and repent. It is not always easy but it is always rewarding. The promise of eternal life is given to me. It is up to me to accept it. I know that I am not perfect and will never be but I strive to be the best version of me and know that My Father in Heaven loves me the way that I am. I give myself freely to what he has in store and live each day to be better than the day before.
