Hi I'm Melissa Stapley

I am the youngest of four kids. I have lived in California all my life. I am a Mormon!

About Me

Hi my name is Melissa, I am 20 years old and am from California. I am college student, and am an adventurer, I love to hike and be in nature. The ocean is my sanctuary and I love travel. I am a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had this gospel in my life. I have always known that this church was special, but as I grew older I started to feel these special warm feelings. The more I grew in this church and the more I felt that special feeling, the more I realized that what I was feeling was the Holy Ghost. It was confirming to me that this was in fact the true church. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are at the head of this gospel and they have sacrificed everything for me to be where I am today. I know that this gospel allows families to live together forever. This gospel brings true and everlasting happiness. I love my Savior.

How I live my faith

On Sundays I help plan and organize lessons. I love to go and participate in church activities, it is a great way for me to meet new people and draw closer to my Heavenly Father.
