Hi I'm Melissa

I from Georgia. I am an artist. I´m a Missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love drawing and painting and cooking and I love theater and all things DISNEY!!!! In my spare time, I like to draw pictures of people doing something or I'll hang out with my family. I plan on going to college at BYU Idaho and majoring in either art or theater. My parents are divorced and have been since I was little. My dad is a member and my biological mom is an aethiest but was once a member. It's difficult talking with my mom about the church when I visit her because she dismisses the things I say so quickly. I live with my dad and step-mom who are both members, which makes being a member a lot easier and my life a lot happier. We are the only members in our family, the first ever to be apart of this church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it is such a warm and welcoming environment to be in. It is full of people that won't judge you for your past actions or where you grew up or even if something is happening to you now. They will always help you in any way they can. It is full of uplifting and awesome standards that protect us from harmful temptations and dangerous situations that without them could be so easy to fall into. I'm a Mormon because of the powerful teachings and ordinances of this gospel. I know it to be true. I don't just believe it, I know it is. I know that Christ is our Savior and i know that this church is true. It has helped me to be an example and a light to the world when it is filled with darkness and tempations.

How I live my faith

I participate in nearly every church-related activity whether it's a stake dance, a youth conference, or something bigger like EFY. I attended EFY (which stands for Especially For Youth) every year I could because it is truly strengthened my testimony in the gospel so powerfully. I worked on my personal progress and I always strive to pray and read my scriptures everyday. I uphold the standards and I try my best to be happy all the time so that I won't have a bad mood to bring others down. I am now serving a mission for this wonderful church to help others experience the joy and love that I feel in the gospel by helping them come unto Christ through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, repentence, baptism, recieving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

The best way to increase your faith in Christ is to read the Book of Mormon all the way through and then pray and ask if its true. Other ways you can increase your faith is by attending church regularly and having a desire to learn and also by attending church activities such as Youth Conferences, service opportunities, and other church-related events that are planned for your benefit.
