Hi I'm Melody

I live in Santa Ana and work in Mission Viejo and I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I have six children and six grandchildren. I work for an Infectious Disease Doctor. I love to read, hike, spend time with my grandchildren and I enjoy outdoor activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized when I was eight, but fell away from the church as a teenager. I returned to full activity at age 28, after realizing living a worldly lifestyle was destroying my life. My experience returning to full activity was very spiritual and faith promoting. After much prayer and a commitment to living the gospel living became more meaningful and I began to experience exquisite joy as I triumphed over personal trials. As I read and studied the Book of Mormon and the Bible, I gained a greater understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ and the healing process and strength it provided me as the things I struggled with began to lose its power over me.

How I live my faith

I try being honest in all that I say and do. I am truly interested in the general welfare of everyone I meet. I try to always be positive and cheerful so I can hopefully lift those I come in contact with.
