Hi I'm Melanie

I work in Administration/Receptionist. Living in Albuquerque, NM. I am an artists/musician poet and spoken word artist.

About Me

I was raised in the suburbs in New Jersey. Did not grow up in a religious home. My mom is a single mother of three, Me being the youngest. I found the church in April of 2012. I wanted to truly feel part of a family and be a part of something special. I've been to many churches, Mostly non-denominational but it felt like going to a college party where no one truly connected. I was sitting in my apartment trying to figure out what I wanted to do as far as being spiritually at ease. I actually saw an LDS commercial (That's not common anymore), so I researched a bit online then called my local temple. Soon after I was baptized. After being baptized I fell away quick because of my feelings being hurt by people in my ward. I felt like there was no point. I moved from Albuquerque for a while, and had alot of time to think. I went to visit my old churches when I came back to NM. Still felt that gap in my spirit. I decided to go to my new ward and build my testimony again. He has blessed me even more since moving and I praise him everyday for his blessings.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want to have more peace in my life and be ready for life, even after life. I am a Mormon, because I feel that it is a gift. A true gift.

How I live my faith

I am in no way perfect but I am striving to be the woman Heavenly Father wants me to be. I am waiting to receive my calling in my new ward. I am not endowed into the temple yet but I am definitely working towards that. Its something I crave and desire for my spirit. I live with a family right now who of course are also members, and being around a family who shares the same values definitely helps my walk.
