Hi I'm Missy Baker

I grew up in Lowell, MI and moved to California right after high school. I have a husband and 3 kids. I'm a Mormon. :)

About Me

I am a wife and mother of 3 children. I am also a full time college student. I am pursuing a degree in Special Education at Grand Valley State University. Right now I am completing my first Student Teaching position in Kent City, MI. I will graduate in June 2015 with a degree in Comprehensive Science and Arts for Teaching, and a degree in Special Education, with endorsements in Cognitive Impairments, and Emotional Impairments. So life is pretty busy right now. Hobbies consist of anything I have time to start and finish between homework, housework, and family life. So, books, small, easy projects I can finish in a day, and not much else! But I love school and all that I am learning.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that Jesus Christ's gospel is contained in the principles that are taught within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Long ago after Christ's crucifixion His church fell apart, but I truly believe that it was restored through a Latter Day prophet of God. Heavenly Father still speaks to us today through these modern day prophets, and when the Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith the fullness of His gospel was restored to the earth. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about and marvel at the blessings that come through living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Currently I am the Activities Coordinator for the women's group in my church. This means I am working with a committee of women to plan and organize monthly activities that are fun and enrich our lives. We try to do things that concentrate on helping in our homes, and in our communities. We enjoy reaching out to community organizations that help children and humanitarian projects that support families across the country and around the world.

Are Mormons Christians?

Missy Baker
Absolutely! The full name of our church is: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It's right there in the name. :) Our faith and our beliefs center on the gospel of Jesus Christ. The very same gospel that He taught, and that we read about in the Bible. Show more Show less
