Hi I'm Melodee

I love my family and the Lord! I have been called to serve Him in the Texas San Antonio Mission, Spanish speaking! :)

About Me

Hi! I'm Melodee. I love to dance. I've been on dance teams since I was 4 and it's my passion! I also love to sing, and, although I don't play any instruments, I love all kinds of music. I am such a family person. I have 3 brothers and a dog, who I couldn't live without. My parents could not be more supportive of me and I owe them everything that I am. I'm currently on a break from school to serve a mission, but I just graduated with my Associates of Science. When I come home, I plan to complete my Bachelors of Accounting, become a CPA, and get a job or internship at an accounting firm, ideally in Manhattan. I plan to go on to earn my Masters of accounting and get as much experience as I can. I absolutely love accounting and math and can't wait to get started when I come home! I will (hopefully) marry the love of my life and have beautiful children to raise in the gospel and love with my whole heart! All in all, I just enjoy life. I love my family and this gospel! :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the overwhelming JOY that comes through the gospel of Christ! I have been so incredibly blessed to be part of a family that is and has always been strong in the church. The feeling of the Spirit is so pure and wonderful and I truly cannot imagine my life without it. This is the gospel of second chances. How true that is! Christ knows us better than we know ourselves and He will never leave us alone. No matter how many mistakes we make or what awful things we have done, our Father is willing to forgive us a hundred times over, IF we are willing to let Him and to forgive ourselves! This was one of the hardest lessons I am still learning. The Lord loves you enough to forgive your transgressions, but you must be willing to forgive yourself! If Heavenly Father is willing, who are you to deny yourself the wonderful blessing that come through the utilization of Christ's Atonement. Really, this gospel is simply amazing and nothing can compare to the joy and peace that come from knowing our Elder Brother and loving Father in Heaven!

How I live my faith

Well. I love the gospel and the truthfulness of it! I am currently serving as a primary teacher to my wonderful 6-year-olds. I will soon get to move on to bigger things! I have the incredible blessing of being called to serve my loving Father in Heaven as a missionary of His church. I truly cannot put into words how thankful I am to have the amazing opportunity to bring the happiness that I know to the amazing people awaiting me in the Texas San Antonio Mission. I report on May 1 to the Provo MTC where I will learn to teach the gospel in the Spanish language...ah! I really am so outrageously excited and there is not a question in my mind that this mission is where I'm supposed to be for the next 18 months. I LOVE THE LORD! And I cannot wait to share His truth with all the wonderful people I will be so blessed to meet!!
