Hi I'm Michele Mendez

I was a single mother until recently. My son is 14. I work for the government and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am recently married to a non-Mormon and we both work for the government. I like to watch movies, hang out with friends and family, and attend all of my son’s athletic activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I love knowing that my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me. I fell away from the faith when I was 19 and made some wrong decisions. I had my son at 21 and was in a deep depression. I knew I was missing something in my life and tried to remember the last time I was truly happy which brought me back to my life while in the church. I thought of going back but I was ashamed and didn’t want people talking about me. With help from my mom who never gave up hope of me returning I did go back to church and to my surprise I was welcomed back with open arms and my son was too.

How I live my faith

I attend all my Sunday meetings. Pray as often as I can, adn try to serve in faith to others.
