Hi I'm Melanie

I sing in the rain. I like spinach in my smoothies. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work with toddlers at a daycare, and I am preparing to serve a mission in California. When I come home I want to get a degree in health and study natural medicine. I love music, especially cello music, and I sing all over the place.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is God's true church. I have gained this sure conviction one small piece at a time. I discovered the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon by reading it, praying about it, and living its teachings. When I acted on what I was taught, God told me it was true. I gained a testimony that President Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God and has been called of God to lead His true church the same way. When I live the principles of this gospel, I am a better person, and I am happy. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I know He atoned for my sins and my sorrows. Because of His atonement, I can repent and come closer to God, and I can live a joyful life free of the guilt that comes with sin. I know I am a Daughter of God and that He loves me and He loves you. You are also His Child. I know families sealed together in Holy Temples by the power of God can live together as a family for all time and through out all eternity.

How I live my faith

I love everyone. You may choose not to believe me, but it is still true. Each day I pray for opportunities to serve and I try to recognize and act on those opportunities. I also spend time each and every day studying the teachings of Christ found in the scriptures. And I let people see how happy the way I live allows me to be.
