Hi I'm Melinda

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah, I have a husband and three beautiful children and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay at home mom for my two beautiful children, I like to teach them their numbers and alphabet along with reading their favorite books. Some of my hobbies consist of sewing, doing puzzles, and anything crafty. Right now I'm going to school online so I can stay home with my kids. Sometimes it can be tough to find time to do my homework with doing chores around the house and attending to the needs of my family, but I always seem to find the time, and I enjoy it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I know that Jesus Christ lived, and that he died for us. We are able to repent of our sins and return back to Him because of His sacrifice. For that, I am truly grateful. I also know that Jesus Christ, through the prophet Joseph Smith restored His church on the earth once again. He also, with the church, restored the priesthood, the power to act in God's name. I know that this is the proper authority in which we use to baptize, bless, and heal through Jesus Christ. With this gospel, because of the knowledge of the plan of salvation, I know we can return to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I love serving others. It helps me feel closer to Christ because he served so many people while living here on the earth. I also love being able to read the scriptures with my kids because even though they may not understand what I'm reading, the spirit is still felt. The kids love to see pictures of Christ and the temples around the home, one time they even just started singing "I Love To See The Temple" a primary song. This helps me to know that my children are learning, and we can have the gospel in our home.
