Rory Mele is a recently returned member of the restored Church after years of semi-activity and excommunication. He is a husband and father to three, and an advocate to his infant daughter with Down syndrome, congenital heart defects, and other disabilities. He received a bachelor degree in Communications, Public Relations from Southern Utah University, minoring in Military Science.
Rory served in the Oklahoma OKC Mission, and shortly after returning home, joined the Utah Army National Guard. He gained a love of writing as a trained Public Affairs Officer for the U.S. Army, and a love for the plain and simple doctrines of the Church through enduring hard things.
His favorite things in life, which he loves sharing with his family, include most outdoor activities in God’s beautiful wilderness where he camps, hikes and goes fly fishing.
