Hi I'm Melanie Cox

I grew up in North Dakota. I'm in grad school for family therapy. I love people and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a river guide and love hiking and rock climbing. I pretend to interpretive dance even though I have no dancing ability. I enjoy making pies. I have 21 nieces and nephews. I am a grad student studying Marriage and Family Therapy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because living the truths I'm taught in my church bring me closer to Jesus. It helps me be more patient with other people and it helps me be more forgiving to myself when I make mistakes. Because I have been sealed with my family in a temple, I know I will be able to live with them after I die. Living the truths of this church helps me feel more connected to my ancestors and I am more prepared to be a loving mother when I have children.

How I live my faith

I work with other young adults in my church group to find ways to get involved in our community.
