Hi I'm Melanie

I am a young woman who loves music, the outdoors, and being with her family! I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a full time student studying piano and voice in Chicago. I love music because it's something we can all relate to, and it's a force that has the power to change people. Besides music, I enjoy being outdoors! I love to ski, hike, and fish. Being from Idaho, I've had a lot of opportunity to enjoy nature and everything that comes along with it! I also love serving and helping others. Because my brother is hearing-impaired, I've seen first hand how important it is to include and improve the lives of everyone I meet.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it brings me so much happiness and joy. When I am doing the things that Heavenly Father wants me to do, I am happy with myself and I find it easier to help other people. At times when I am feeling down, I know I can always turn to God and He will help lift me up. There is so much comfort in knowing that God lives and that He wants each of us to be happy. I am also extremely thankful for the plan that God has made for each of us to return to live with Him again. I am thankful to know that there is an afterlife and that I will be able to live with my family in heaven for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every single day, not just while I am at church. Being in a big city is sometimes hard because there are so many people with so many different lifestyles. The best thing I can do every day is be an example to those around me and hope that through my choices (dressing modestly, not swearing, not drinking, etc.) I will inspire others to try to live each day a little better and to also have the same desire to lift others up and be a responsible citizen.
