Hi I'm Michelle

I plan events, build relationships, read books and travel the world. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A good day for me consists of a good book, a chocolate milkshake after a long run, and some sunshine. I'm the oldest of five kids. I'm married to the most thoughtful guy in the world- literally and figuratively. I've played tennis, soccer, and basketball all my life, but I love anything that involves a sports ball and a good time. My love for travel began on a semester abroad in London and now my passport knows no bounds. My husband and I are Midwest transplants, learning to love Chicago while working. Public relations is my jam, and I love to build relationships with people over the smallest or largest of things.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a strong belief in God and Jesus Christ. They are the only constant source of truth and peace in this crazy world today. Their message of peace and hope is that Jesus died for every one of us and suffered for our sins so that one day, we could return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father. I know that they don't ask for perfection- they just ask us to try our best and do what they ask out it. It's such a small task when you compare it what Christ has done for us, and I know that there is a life so much better for us when we pass on then there we're living here and now. And that knowledge allows me to have a better life on this Earth.

How I live my faith

Simply put, I do what God and Jesus ask me to do, both in the little and big things. Externally, I try to be humble and full of charity. God and Christ have asked us to be nice to others, as all people are his children. I also am aware that I am an example of Christ to those that I interact with at work, since I am the only member of the church at my job. I strive hard to keep the commandments and to share my faith in God at appropriate times. Internally, I focus on the small but simple things (praying daily, reading my scriptures, living the commandments) to build my faith and testimony so that I can be a better example of a disciple of Christ to those around me.
