Hi I'm Michelle Ray

I grew up in the military. I love trying new things. I love learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 5 brothers and sisters. I moved around a lot as a kid, which was hard but now I see how lucky I was to experience so many fun places. I lived with my grandma for a couple of years while I was going to college. I learned so much from such an amazing lady. I studied math while I was in school- and education. I want to be a math teacher.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in this church and I am so grateful. My parents have taught me and all my brothers and sisters to work hard and love every minute of it. They taught us the importance of family and to love everyone. I still remember the moment when I knew for sure that this was the true church. It was gradual. Line upon line. And then I was praying one day, after I finished reading the Book of Mormon. I was asking to know if it was true and the answer I got was "You already knew it was true." I wanted a road to Damascus moment, but the answer I got was small and came in little pieces throughout my life. And know I know beyond a shadow of a doubt. Since then I have strived to live my life as my Savior would want me to. I have experienced so many joys in my life and I know that it is because of my faith and the faith of my family. Everyday I try to grow closer to Him by making right choices and doing as He would want me to.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by the choices that I make everyday. I seek to help others. I love serving the community. I've done a lot of volunteer work at elementary schools and retirement homes. I've worked with the youth at church. Whenever I find myself in a situation when I don't know how to respond, I ask myself "What would Jesus do?" WWJD. Its cliche, I know, but it has helped me to know to act because the Savior has lead the perfect example of service and love.
