Hi I'm Melinda Elliott

I am a proud mom of two missionaries. My son is currently serving in Scotland and my daughter is serving in Finland.

About Me

I have been a member of the church since 1998. That has been one of my best decisions in my life besides marrying my high school sweetheart, who is the best husband. We have been married 23 years and have two amazing children who are currently serving missions. I have been truly blessed. I am thankful for everyday God gives me. I enjoy bike riding, gardening, crocheting, games and scrap booking, but best of all spending time with family.

Why I am a Mormon

Before I became a Mormon, I prayed about it. The Holy Ghost confirmed to me that it was true. I never had that comforting feeling about a church before. I knew this was the church for me. I had been investigating other churches before I joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so thankful to my Father in Heaven for always being there for me. I am so, so, so blessed. I know I have used the word blessed a few times but that is the word that comes to me for describing how I feel. My life is better because of the gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best I can and a light to others. I just love going to church and teaching the children. They bring a smile to my face. Children are a wonderful blessing. Being a mom has been such a rewarding experience. I am so grateful to be a mom and it is truly a blessing.
