Hi I'm Michelle

I am from northern Utah. I live life so that everyday I have something to smile about. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently attending college with the hopes of eventually becoming a physical therapist. I've had a variety of different hobbies throughout my life including doing gymnastics, pole vaulting, playing the clarinet, and showing steers through the 4-H program. I am trying to learn Mandarin Chinese and hope to one day be able to speak fluently. I love my parents and siblings and enjoy spending time with them through camping, frisbee, and many other activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love my Savior Jesus Christ. Through the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I have come to understand His role in my salvation. I know that He lived for me, died for me, and was resurrected and lives for me still today. I know that when I follow His teachings I am happy and through continued obedience I can be happy forever. I know that Heavenly Father has developed a plan to allow each person willing to follow Him the blessing of one day returning to live with Him, Christ, and our families forever. I'm a Mormon because I know the teachings of the gospel help me to live life to the greatest measure and to spread good to those around me. I am a Mormon because I need the strength and guidance of His gospel and love. I am a Mormon because I know the teachings are true and good. I thrive on the peace, love, and joy the gospel brings as I learn about my Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am an active member in my faith and try each day to be a little better than I was the last. I attend weekly services and love to continue learning the gospel in the meetings and lessons. In my church, I have the opportunity to become friends with some of the other women and visit and serve them. This opportunity is called visiting teaching. It is my privilge to get to know and love them and ease their daily burdens as much as possible. In my college ward we are organized into small groups and participate in activities together every Monday night. These activities are called Family Home Evening. It is my responsibility to invite the members of my group to come and make sure they feel welcome. I am able to help plan uplifting activities that build our friendships and testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ.
