Hi I'm Melissa

I am a new convert! I love being a Mormon! " No clue what else to say but I might be awesome"

About Me

This Church spoke to me on many personal levels. Anyone who knows me also knows family means more to me than anything. Anyone who REALLY knows me, knows that I have a deep, dark and painful scar in my past. I was raised religious. I always had a relationship with god, but as a child I lost my father to suicide and was told by a southern minister my beloved Father condemned himself to hell. From that day I walked away from church and God. I became bitter and angry growing up. I was very lonely! Then I became pregnant with my oldest son and he changed my life for the better soon after that I met my wonderful husband and we had two more head strong wonderful children, and I learned to smile again. I was happy. I lived a good life actually lived the words of wisdom, had family night, food storage all before knowing about them " weird" Still something was missing from my life and Heavenly Father knew all the pain and scars I carried from my past. So when I met my precocious missionaries at a garage sale and invited them over to talk.. Well the Gospel spoke to me. It made sense and it is what I have been waiting for. Heavenly Father loves all his children and wants us all home, and he would never punish anyone for being mentally ill .. This is the most loving , truthful gospel 3 This is Christs restored church. I have no doubt in my mind this is true 3

Why I am a Mormon

Since the first day I met my precious missionary at a garage sale I knew this was where I was meant to be.. Funny enough I lived like a Mormon was jokingly called the Mormon never knew why, until I learned about the church and was like "oh yea!" I am supposed to be a Mormon! Heavenly Father has been preparing me for the truth for years 3 I love my ward, the gospel, the everything about it! That is why I am a Mormon!!

How I live my faith

I just try to be a little better and a little kinder every day :)
