Hi I'm Mellissa Laisnez

I grew up in Utah, I love to sing, I love the gospel, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a emerging adult who just finished my first year of college. Right now I am studying Choral Music Education, because I really love to teach and sing. Music is my passion I love anything and everything music related. My hobbies include story telling, drawing, reading, writing, and learning new things. Learning is also a passion of mine, I value knowledge because it is a treasure that will always be mine.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is TRUE! I have had many trials in my life where this has been proven to me. I know that Heavenly Father answers my prayers and I know that what this church teaches is unique. Specifically that families can be together for eternity. That statement has always helped me to endure to the end. Also I know that the power of the priesthood is real, miracles can happen through the power of a priesthood blessing.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with strength and endurance. I love my Heavenly Father and I try to live my life following the example of his son Jesus Christ. This means that I follow the commandments, show kindness, give service, and smile! :) I also attend my church meetings and fulfill the callings that I am given.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Mellissa Laisnez
We have a great respect for Joseph Smith, but we do not worship him. We are a Christian based church and we worship Jesus Christ. Joseph Smith was the key to restoring Jesus Christ's original church upon the earth after we faced a great apostasy; which is a time period where the power and authority of God (the Priesthood) was lost from the earth after the death of Christ.
