Hi I'm Melanie

I am an artist. I love to party. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Virginia. I love to read, write, create, play, sing, celebrate, and tell stories! I am a total nerd who thinks way too deeply about television shows and movies, and I read novels like I breathe air. I just can't get enough! I graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in general art studies and then I got a job working full time in an administrative office that I don't think even has a single painting in it. Go figure! I'm the 5th child in a family of 8, and my siblings are my best friends. My parents are pretty cool too.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that God loves me. He shows me in simple and sometimes silly ways. He knows me and loves me, and that love has changed my whole life. That love IS my whole life! Everything I have I owe to Him, and everything I want to be I can achieve with His help. I know that God speaks to his people today and that this organization, this church, has divine origins and leadership. It truly is the Church of Jesus Christ on the earth today; we follow Christ and we live our lives according to his teachings. I have seen this church change lives, and I have been changed as I've learned and lived His gospel.

How I live my faith

I'm currently taking a break from working for money and I've chosen to work for my God full-time! I am serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the great state of Arizona! I know this is something the Lord wants me to do, so I've put aside my life for just a little bit so I can focus and serve him to the best of my abilities for a little while.
