Hi I'm Melanie

I grew up in Idaho. I love to play basketball. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Melanie. I am currently attending BYU-Idaho. More than anything, I love spending time with my family. I also love sports, being active and outdoors. I love to have fun and smile! Yes there are hard times in life but it's always easier to get through them when you can laugh at yourself and just smile. The Lord has a plan for each and everyone of us. We just have to trust Him. He wants us to be happy!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know without a doubt that this is the only true church on the earth today and is lead by a prophet of God. I have seen this gospel change lives. It has changed mine. I have seen miracles happen when people read the Book of Mormon. I know it's the word of God. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Father and His son Jesus Christ and restored the gospel to the earth. I know that Joseph Smith all the way down to Thomas S. Monson are true prophets of God. I know that the Lord leads His church today through the prophet. I know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ we can change. I know the Lord loves each and everyone of us the same. We are all children of God. I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true and I cannot deny the testimony that I have.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to become a little bit better. I know that we each have the light of Christ inside of us. As I serve and show the light of Christ that is inside of me, I can help others and make a difference in their lives. I strive to always live my faith in my thoughts, words, and actions so that when others see me they can see Christ in me. I try to be like Christ because I know one day I can be.
