Hi I'm Michelle

I am a Mum to 5 crazy wonderful kids, was a magazine Editor and Teacher, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the one of 8 children in a blended family! I grew up in a village in Leicestershire and had an amazing childhood which was full of the joys of an outdoors life. I became part of a blended family in my mid-teens. I ran my own Publishing Company and travelled around the world teaching art and crafts workshops. I am a Mum and wife and LOVE my life! I am a creative and crafty person, I love cooking and baking (especially cupcakes... which I am well known for), I like to escape in a good book and pull on my walking boots and get out and about in the beautiful British countryside. I dream about a simpler life and moving back to the country and living 'The Good Life'!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to a family that were members of the Church. My Mum having been introduced to the Gospel by The Osmonds! I married my wonderful Husband and soul mate when I was 18 (I never planned to marry having witnesses a broken marriage), we were married in the London Temple, and are happily married 18years (and 5 children) later. This does not mean that it has been easy – My husband became very ill just after our 4th child was born, and our life changed, I was no longer able to be a stay home I had to pick up the mantle as the breadwinner. It was a difficult 5 years I had to stay close to the Lord, pray often for the strength to overcome my frustrations, doubts and have faith that he would be healed. He was, and a number of years later the balance was restored and we are able to look back and see that the challenge’s had actually strengthened our marriage and developed us in to the people we are today. I know this is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that a boy of 14 knelt in a grove of trees and was visited by a loving Father in Heaven and His beloved Son Jesus Christ and His Gospel was restored to the earth for me and for you. I know that He is there for me and loves me; I am indeed a Child of God. I know that we will be together as families for eternity and with those of my family who have passed away. No matter how difficult this world is and what challenges are thrown at us, HE does provide a way that we can overcome them, and He enables us to become stronger and better people for it. He refines us to be the best person that we can be! Nothing brings me more happiness and fulfillment than living the Gospel every day of my life. It is true, don’t take my word for it… ask for yourself as HE wants you to know and will answer your fervent prayers. You are a Child of God a son/daughter of a Father in Heaven who loves you and cares for you. Kneel in prayer and study the Book of Mormon and you too will receive a witness that this is where you should be.

How I live my faith

I am very blessed and have the honour of working with the Youth (aged 12-18yrs) in my local area. They have an amazing spirit and teach me so much! I am involved in their annual 'Girls Camp' and enjoy taking part in planning a camp that will teach them how special they are, that they are daughters of a Father in Heaven who loves them very much. This year our theme is 'Stand ye in Holy Places' and we are teaching the girls that wherever they stand and whatever they do that they can make the places that they are Holy by the way in which they live their lives. I also serve as a Visiting Teacher and have the chance to visit each month with the wonderful women of this Gospel and inspire one another.
