Hi I'm Melissa

I wrote children's books in high school. I'm serving a mission for my beliefs. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I practice yoga in the mornings. Recently I graduated from a liberal arts college with an English degree. I love hearing bad weather outside, eating cold cereal, and playing board games like Ticket to Ride.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in this church with a very devout family. Even so, I have had opportunities living on my own to leave it -- but I simply love it too much to ever do that. The truth I find, the support I receive, and the love I feel when I practice the teachings is worth more than anything I could find elsewhere. I know this is the church of Jesus Christ, and we are latter-day saints. Learning and growing in this church makes me a better version of myself. I also believe serving and working in this church will make the world a better place. That makes it all worth it.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday, wherever I'm living at the time, I attend church services. Occasionally I've taught Sunday school, mostly lesson plans based out of the Old Testament. I love to attend service projects, and bake cookies for fellow ward members. My favorite way to worship is personal scripture study, where I can learn to discover treasures in the doctrine. I just love the written word.
