Hi I'm Melissa

I was born and raised in good ol' sunny California. I have a happy personality that's contagious. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy talking to people, getting to know them, and make them laugh. I love anything that is artsy, and have such a love and passion for film. Although at the moment I put that career to the side, and am now serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in England!

Why I am a Mormon

Here is the key: I chosen to be a member of this church. Ever since being baptized, I couldn't help but feel happiness throughout my life. I have been blessed being brought up by two wonderful parents, that taught me principles and leading by example how to live this happy life. Although I was born in this gospel, there came a time in my life that I have to continue developing my own faith to keep that happiness. I have to endure, I've got to be confident, and more importantly, I needed to be patient. Being on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is teaching me to not only those things, but to also share of what I know that is truth. I have the opportunity to study and ponder on the fact of what Christ has done for me, and I find how amazing it is! How wonderful a friend like Him, finished the work that needed to be done on this earth. He died for all of our sins! Through him, we are saved, that is if we strive to live the commandments He gave us. "We believe that through the Atonement of Christ, all mankind may be saved, by obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel." [The Articles of Faith 3] I know that this gospel can help anyone on this earth, if they are willing to listen and open their hearts, and let Christ in their life, it will truly bless them.

How I live my faith

I do my best to serve others, for it always makes me happy and comfort in my heart when I do so.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Melissa
Why should we not? I believe in the Bible because it testifies of testimonies of these wonderful people in the past. Its a historical document. It helps expound the mind, and inspires it too. Also it testifies of Jesus Christ which is the foundation of the gospel. Show more Show less
