Hi I'm Michelle

I'm a mom of five, an artist and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a working mom with five kids, an artist, and a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have chosen to be a Mormon. Growing up, my parents always encouraged me to research things for myself, as I now do with my own children. I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the gospel that Christ organized. I have had so many blessings being a member of this church, but the biggest one to me is knowing I am very loved daughter of a loving Heavenly Father. He is as real and loving and kind as my father here on Earth had been. It is also a real comfort to know I can someday live with members of my family again who have passed on. Just reading the Book of Mormon has brought me great peace in times of stress than I can tell you in just a few words.

How I live my faith

We joined the church when I was young, and I am so thankful I had the opportunity to spend my teen years in the church. I was given so many opportunities to do fun activities, go to dances, and take trips. Now, as an adult, it still gives me fun opportunities. I enjoy spending time in my calling teaching the youth, (recently I taught them about art) and hearing about their lives. It also gives me more time with my own children.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Mormons live much the same way a lot of other people do. We believe we are here on Earth to be happy, to do our best, to serve one another. We strive to make the world a better place, by being involved in community service, and using kindness to better the world around us. We know these things make us feel happy, closer to Heavenly Father and enjoy life more. Family is very important to us. Being able to live the kind of life that makes us happy, helps others and strengthens us and our family. We work, go to church, dance, sing, play, laugh, generally find the beauty in daily life.
