Hi I'm Melina

I grew up with my family in the beautiful state of Utah, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love spending time with my parents and brothers. They are my best friends. We like hiking and spending time outdoors together. I enjoy ballroom dance, swimming, and learning about animals. During my senior year of high school, I started a business to raise money to help rescue girls in India from trafficking. After I complete my LDS mission to the Illinois Chicago Mission, I will be going to Hawaii to study marine biology.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that this church is true. I know that the only way to find true happiness is by following Christ. The LDS church helps me do this. I know that we have a living prophet. This prophet is called by God, to lead God's children on earth. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. He was called by God to restore the gospel of Christ and translate the Book of Mormon. I know that this book is true. I love reading it, and it has blessed my life more than any other book. I know that we have a Heavenly Father who created us and loves us. He listens to our prayers. I know that we can we washed clean from sin, through the atonement of Jesus Christ, that we will be resurrected, and can live with our families in heaven after this life.

How I live my faith

On Sundays, I have the responsibility of teaching the 3 to 4 year old children at church. It takes a lot of patience, but I love having this responsibility. I am constantly learning and growing because of this opportunity. Even though I have not been able to attend college yet, I have taken several institue classes
