Hi I'm Michal

I'm a PR student, volleyball fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love learning and working hard. I have four brothers and one sister. My parents raised us to work extremely hard and we've created a beautiful yard with all that hard work. We recently moved from one house to the other, and therefore started the process of creating a yard all over again. It is hard work, but I love being able to create beautiful things, especially with my family. I am currently a college student studying public relations. I really enjoy learning about how to help the world become a better place and how to give better options to other people. I've particularly been interested in it because my dad is creating a business devoted to helping Parkinson's Disease patients. I want the world to become better and better, and I love being able to see how we can change it one piece at a time.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Mormon! I'm a Mormon because I can't find any more beautiful teachings in the world. I love that I know there is a God who knows and loves me. I love being able to pray and being sure that He hears me. I love knowing that God loves me enough that He answers my prayers. He always does, and I have become such a better person because I am trying to do what the Lord wants me to do. I love that I can be with my family not just for this life--but forever! My family means everything to me, and I would never want to live a life not knowing I couldn't be with them forever. I am a Mormon because through being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ, I can be saved and live with my Heavenly Father again. I love knowing that! And I love knowing that I am on Earth because I am trying to learn how to be like my Heavenly Father. I know and truly believe we all have the ability to become like God--and I know that because I can see the goodness in people that comes from God! So why couldn't someone continue to develop good characteristics and eventually become so good that they had many Godlike qualities. I think it is beautiful to know that the Lord is helping us to become like He is: we can become kind, charitable, forgiving, full of joy, and have peace. Being a Mormon is a life full of beauty.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed from the Mormon organization of Relief Society! If I were a Mormon just to be a member of the Relief Society, and just for the fellowship, it would be worth it! Relief Society is a program for the women in the Mormon church. I have learned from many women in my geographic area, getting to know them helps me glean from their example. I've learned how to deal with problems in my life because of them. I have learned to quilt and bake bread from them--I have learned so much! Not only that, I have seen how my visiting teachers have changed my life! Visiting teachers are other women who have accepted a responsibility to look after other women in the Relief Society. We believe it's God's way for us to have a constant friend on the earth. My visiting teachers have came and helped me in my darkest days. Maybe I could have made it through without them, but I don't like to think of how hard it would have been. They've helped me lift burdens I couldn't do on my own. They truly have blessed me! I try to do that same thing for other women. I hope that I can help those who are without friends, or those who may need a hug or a meal. I love knowing that I can make a difference, and so I am trying my best to be there for other women, including those that I visit teach.
