Hi I'm Michelle Robertson

Born and raised in Utah. I enjoy spending time with my family, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm the youngest of three, with two older brothers I love dearly. At a young age my father's life was taken and I've had to learn how to cope with that loss. I enjoy spending time with my entire family including aunts, uncles, cousins, and even second cousins. Being with my family helps me to see a bigger picture in life, and helps me to be happy. I also enjoy spending a lot of time out in the sun near water during the summer. I try to wave at people who look like they are in need of some uplifting. I live a happy life, and never forget to smile!

Why I am a Mormon

I was brought up in the church, and never really gained my own personal testimony until I was a little older when my dad passed away. I then realized, and tried to gain a better understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ. By reading the scriptures and pondering what they said, by listening to uplifting music that helped me to feel the spirit, and by attending my church meetings to learn more about what I was reading. My faith in Christ also increased as I took going to church and living the gospel more seriously. Because of the effort that I put forth I was able to better understand why I am here. I was sent to this earth to gain a body, and to learn, grow, and serve others around me. I know that I am not a perfect person. But I also know that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I will become more perfect and be able to return to my Father in Heaven once more.

How I live my faith

One particular way that I have lived my faith is by serving others. At some point in your life you are, or have been, in need of some help but don't have enough money to pay for the things you need to get down. One experience that i've had with helping others was when I was 14 and the youth all joined together to help people who's yards were in need of some attention, but was too big of a job for just one or two people to do. My group mowed the lawn, painted part of the fence, and also picked up weeds and bagged it all. We did not get any money in return, but what we did get was the feeling of accomplishment. Helping others around us without getting any physical thing in return is sometimes hard to understand. But once you try it, you will continue to help do small things to help others each day.
