Hi I'm Melinda

I grew up in Utah and love it here. I have six beautiful, fun and crazy children. I'm married to Superman!

About Me

I love being in nature, that is when I feel really close to our Heavenly Father. I enjoy hiking and jumping in any river or lake I come across. I enjoy a good setting, whether it's my own home, somewhere in nature, a cool museum, the temple or in an office. I love organizing "matter" into something that functions well and is organized. I love planning, making goals and working toward them.I like trying to be like Jesus, it's a challenge everyday, but when I really try, it makes me happy. I love traveling with my family. They make me complete and I enjoy learning more about relationships and whats really important.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I prayed about the Book of Mormon when I was very young and felt a nice feeling of familiarity and I just knew it was true. I have also prayed about the vision of Joseph Smith and I know what he said he saw is true. That event changed the world forever. I have always felt God's love in my life and have felt that there is more to life than just what's going on right now. I love the peace, knowledge and excitement that the gospel of Jesus Christ has to offer. Jesus offers so much more to us than the world does. He is the way, the truth and the life. Jesus did what He said He was going to do and we have the amazing Atonement to help us overcome our failures, heartaches, discouragement and sins because of Him. It truly is awesome. I love my family and I'm so glad that because of Christ, our family can continue on and grow and love beyond our current understanding of things. It is a wonderful journey and I'm so grateful for my faith in these things.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving as Young Women President in my ward and I have loved it. The girls I get to hang out with are amazing and it is so rewarding to watch their testimonies grow through time. I try to keep the gospel at the center of our conversations at home. I try to make our home a place of safety and peace. I love being a mom with the scriptures and words of living prophets to help guide me as I teach my children the way to be happy which is through living the teaching of Christ. It really is a beautiful message of love, hope and excitement for these to come.
