Hi I'm Melissa

I'm a proud Canadian, a secret anime lover and a book junkie. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I don't have too many talents that are noticeable but oddly enough I love school and happen to be pretty decent at it so I have made it a major focus in my life. With that being said, I have recently received my Bachelor of Arts! When I'm not busy with school, I love reading (epic fantasy novels are my fave), running, and watching anime or Korean dramas. Spending time with my family and friends are definitely treasured moments. Oh, and I'm quite a romantic...any story with that 'happily ever after' ending will absolutely make my day!

Why I am a Mormon

I love everything about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I have been a member my whole life and I'm so grateful I grew up in the Church. I know it is true with all my heart. I don't have a specific moment where I realized it was true but the blessings in my life, the promptings and comfort I receive from the Spirit, and the love I feel everyday from my Heavenly Father and my Saviour are a constant confirmation of the truth of this gospel. Because I know how much God loves me and how happy it makes me, I want others to feel of His love as well and have been called to serve a full time mission. I am so excited to let others know that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I attend a young single adult branch since I fall between the 18 and 30 age range and because I'm not married yet! I absolutely love my branch and the people in it. In the past I have worked mostly with the women. Together we learn how we can grow closer to our Heavenly Father and how we can increase our testimonies of our Saviour and of the gospel. Visiting teaching has definitely helped with this and allows for strong bonds to form between the women in the branch. Most recently I have been in charge of Potluck Sundays which is organized after church on Fast Sundays. I love being able to serve and I love food so this has been a fun calling for me! I am also a branch missionary and do my best to fellowship new members and visitors.
