Hi I'm Mignonne

I love the outdoors and performing. I believe every day is a great opportunity to do something awesome. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

Recently I return from living and loving the southern states. I served an 18 month mission devoted to teaching people about Christ's gospel and trying to help them feel of their Savior's love. I'm currently attending college at BYU in Idaho and am pursuing a major in Communication. Once I have completed my major I have ambitions to pursue a law degree. I believe that music can heal, help, and teach. Sometimes in my spare time I write silly little stories or a song or two. I love being with my family and friends and I’m always up for a fun time. I come from a pretty big family with lots of crazy exciting people and I’ve been able to see the awesomeness of adoption in my home!

Why I am a Mormon

When I was just a kid my parents decided to open our home to foster care children. Throughout the years my family has slowly grown from five to thirteen children. Kids who wouldn’t have had the chance to have a family have been offered a loving home with parents who care and siblings that are there to support one another in the ups and downs of life. Family is very important to me and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is very focused on the home. I’m a Mormon because I can find a safe haven from the craziness of life through my religion. When I have questions I need answered I can always rely on the scriptures and prayer to find what I’m looking for. Throughout high school and going into college I found life to be very confusing, but I was always able to fall back on the Lord for my strength and support. He guides me through my personal prayers and also the council from our prophet who leads and guides the church today. The prophet, Thomas S. Monson, is very similar to prophets from biblical times. He receives inspiration for the entire church. I can also receive personal inspiration to guide my own life. I know that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world and has risen again to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man. I know it is only through Christ I will be able to return to live with God again. I can testify to the Book of Mormon being another testament of Jesus, just as the bible testifies of Christ. I’m a Mormon because I believe that God still speaks to a prophet on the earth today. I’m a Mormon because I believe God loves all his children today, just as he did back in ancient times. He still speaks to us now and guides us just as He always has. I’m a Mormon and I know Jesus Christ in my brother and Savior.

How I live my faith

I have always strived to live my faith through my words and actions. I pray, read scriptures and actively participate in church activities. I have accepted and fulfilled callings in the church in the youth program, and in the Relief Society. Throughout high school and college I have strived to be an example of the believers as I participated in the various activities I was able to be involved in. Recently I have returned from devoting the past eighteen months of my life to serving the Lord. I’m thrilled to have had the opportunity to go out and teach the world about my savior Jesus Christ, and the blessings his gospel can bring. I try to live my faith by sharing the light the Lord has to offer with his children. Every day I will continue to share the love I have been given through the scriptures and music with my fellow man.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We understand the family to be central to the Lord's plan plan of happiness for each of us. Our church also believes families to be an eternal bond, meaning we will be able to still enjoy the blessings of the family once we have gone to heaven. Each week we strive to strengthen home and family by spending time with one another and learning from each other. Show more Show less
