Hi I'm Melissa

I grew up in San Diego. I'm a middle child. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California to a family of six, with three siblings. Growing up I spent a lot of time with my family attending sporting events, the beach, and local tourist spots. I am always one for an adventure and a new opportunity. Currently serving a full-time mission in New York City.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know it's true. I have always been a positive person and loved to bring happiness to others. As a teenager in High School I realized that this happiness and light that I had came from my Savior and from His restored gospel. Once I realized this my motives for everything changed, I had a desire to share this real joy with others. I am grateful for my parents who have always raised me in love and righteousness and nurtured my testimony until I got my own.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the teachings of God. I strive to be obedient to the things God has commanded us to do (like attending church and reading the scriptures) I know from experience that doing these things bring real and lasting happiness. I also live my faith by repenting, or asking God for forgiveness. We are all human and make mistakes but I am grateful for my savior Jesus Christ because through him we can all be clean again.
