Hi I'm Michelle

I'm from California. I explore the outdoors any chance I get. I'm a member of the Church.

About Me

I graduated from school a year ago, but found out I needed knee surgery right after I was free. Unable to work, I moved home and spent several months recovering and rebuilding my strength. Now, I'm getting back into the work force and getting myself back onto my feet. I am a fan of anything natural. I'm way into real food, and enjoy experimenting with making versions of junk food that are actually decent for you. Also, to me 'vacation' means camping and getting mud on my boots. Give me outdoors and good food, and I'm a happy gal.

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly, the Gospel just makes sense. I grew up in the Church, but I haven't always been one hundred percent faithful. Like many others born in the Church, I've had my fair share of doubts that I had to battle while growing up, and had to find out the truth for myself. Through my personal struggles (there have been many, and continue to be many), I have felt God's love for me, and have seen His guiding hand in my life. Experiences like the ones I've had are more than just coincidence. I know God loves me, and I know that His Gospel has been restored. It just makes sense to follow the teachings of the Gospel. Life is better with studious obedience to its precepts. It's work, but it's worth it.

How I live my faith

Currently, my official role in my ward is to organize food! Being as it is a young single adult ward, socializing, and thus food, is rather important. Roughly every two weeks, the ward members gather at one of the bishopric's homes after church to share dinner and spend time together. I get to plan each meal, and work with my small committee to bring it about. Though it's sometimes stressful, it is a lot of fun.
