Hi I'm Michelle

I grew up in Utah

About Me

My name is Michelle. I'm from Utah, I come from a family of 12, I have a passion for anything to do with music and dancing. I love hiking, biking, running, climbing, pretty much anything outdoors, and spending quality time with my family and friends, and I am currently serving the Lord as a full-time missionary in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Cajun Mission. I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ means everything to me. I was raised in the church, but just like a new convert, I had to gain my own testimony. In this life we are all to be lead by Faith, and that is what I have done and am still doing. For me to gain my own testimony of the truthfulness of this gospel I had to first start by taking a step of action to find out for myself if it is true, by following God's commandments and Christ's teachings. As I have come to do that my testimony has grown and the gospel has become delicious to me and I crave to know more and more and I have a strong desire to live it!! I know that as we take the step to follow the teachings and live the gospel we will see our lives change for the better! God loves all of us so much and would never leave us helpless, thus we have prophets who lead and guide us as we take the steps on the journey of life. I know that this gospel is a structure to better our lives and the relationships we have with our familes and others! I am a mormon because I love the Lord!!! I am a mormon because I know this is true! I am a mormon because I want to draw nearer to our Heavenly Father and I know that it is possible as we follow His plan that he has laid out for us, by living the teachings of Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by following the example of our Savior. He taught ' Come follow me'. I follow him everyday as I strive to become more like him by developing His attributes; charity, love, knowledge, patience, humility,etc. I know that I am not perfect, but as a strive to follow Him and his example I know that I will come closer to him. As a misisonary I get an extra special calling to teach his gospel as he did. I know that everyone sees who I am and they know who I stand for, as I have His name securely fastened to my chest. I live my faith by not only teaching what I know to be true, but also living what I know to be true. I live my faith as I remember to stand as a witness of God at all times, in all things, and in all places, standing firm in what I know and never being moved!
