Hi I'm Misha

I was born and raised in Nephi Utah. I have been in the Manti Mormon Miracle Pageant for eighteen years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I go to school at UVU. I'm in the Ballroom team, and I plan on majoring in Theatre Education, and I'm about to leave on my mission for the California Rancho Cucamonga Mission. I have a total of seven siblings, five bothers and two sisters. I'm very accident prone, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying the life the Lord has given me. The Lord is very good at keeping his promise to my mother. If she was going to be poor, don't give her a life that would be boring.

Why I am a Mormon

My family have been and are members of the church. At a very young age I read the Book of Mormon. Mostly so I could go to a fancy restaurant with my parents. Five years into the future, I was overwhelmed by depression. Because I was finally old enough to understand all the mean and hurtful things that was said and done to me. I took it upon myself to believe all of these hurtful things. I thought, "well, if they are telling me that I'm fat, ugly, and stupid. Then it must true". In the summer of 2008, was when I was truly converted to this gospel. Every June my family participate in the Manti Mormon Miracle Pageant. It's a play performed on the Manti temple hill about the restoration of the gospel. At the very end of the play, it talks about how death is just a door that leads to one room into another. It was this phrase that struck me to the core. I was reminded by this phrase of the temporal death and the resurrection that Alma the younger taught to one of his sons. At that time I couldn't remember where in the Book of Mormon or who spoke about it. That was when my beloved mother told me, "If you want to get out of the slump you'er in, then re-read the Book of Mormon." If it weren't for that first time that I read the Book of Mormon, I would not be in this blessed life today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being loving and friendly to all I see. To help others know that there is a God out there, and He loves them very much. That there is no amount they cannot do wrong to make God stop loving them, and with a very sincere heart they can know for a surety that He does love them.
