Hi I'm Melanie

I am a reader and a kickboxer. I am going on a mission to Arkansas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just completed my first year of college. My hobbies include; Reading, Writing, and Kickboxing! I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I am leaving to serve a full time mission in Arkansas!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I love Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon, because I have read the Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. It is a journal from our ancestors. I have heard, felt, and seen too much to deny this gospel. This gospel has saved my life and the lives of my family. I am a Mormon, because I Love It!

How I live my faith

I show my faith by living it. I try to dress, act, and speak like I would if the Savior was here with me. I participate in my ward by fulfilling my calling which is organizing Temple trips with the youth in the ward.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Melanie
Eternal life means that one day we will live with God and our families forever. We lived before we came to this earth with our Heavenly Father and because we loved Him so much we wanted to be like Him so He created a place for us to come and learn to become like Him (That is here, our earthly life) and once we pass on from this earthly life we will go back to live with our Father and our families. The church states "Our loving Heavenly Father is anxious to reward all of His children according to their obedience to His commandments and their willingness to follow the Savior." "Those who choose not to follow our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ will receive a reward according to what they have done in this life, but they will not enjoy the glory of living in the presence of God." God loves us because we are His children and He wants us to come and live with him again! Show more Show less
