Hi I'm Melissa

I grew up in Draper, Utah, and I love to play sports. I am currently serving in the Arizona Tucson mission, & I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in Tucson, Arizona until February of 2019. I love to run, play sports, play piano, and be with my friends and family. I attended Brigham Young University and aspire to be a nurse! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and have seen it bless my life and the lives of those I love!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ!! It is the true and restored gospel upon the earth, and it is the only way we can achieve the most happiness in this life, as well as eternal life in the life to come. I know that it is because of Jesus Christ that all things are possible -- we are able to start again, change to become more like Him, understand our purpose in this life, and help others be happy. I love helping others and being a missionary allows me the opportunity to share something that has changed my life for the better and help them come closer to Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, Redeemer, Brother, and Best Friend, and there is no way I could be where I am now without Him. I know that He is the way, the truth, the light of the world, and that through Him, all can be cleansed from sins and mistakes, and be make clean and whole again. By relying fully on His Atonement, we are able to access redemption from our transgressions and feel peace through His Holy Spirit. The knowledge of this true, restored gospel of Jesus Christ has transformed me into someone that I never could have become myself, and I feel so blessed to have it. I feel privileged to have the chance to share it with others!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by living my life!! I love to have fun, smile, be happy, and work hard. I do my best to incorporate Christlike characteristics in all I do. I learn more about Jesus Christ and His gospel through scripture study, prayer, attending the temple, and listening to the words of the prophets. As a missionary, we have the opportunity to dedicate all of our time and energy to sharing the restored gospel and help others come unto Christ. I hope that by reaching out to others and helping them have faith in Jesus Christ, repent, be baptized, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and endure to the end, that I am able to please our Father in Heaven by living the faith. :)
