Desiree: Mormon.

Hi I'm Desiree

About Me

I'm a wife and homemaker. I have a 2 year old daughter. I'm blessed to be able to stay home with her. I enjoy music, family, crafts. I wish I knew how to quilt. It's on my bucket list. I love animals. We have two dogs. One beagle and one yorkie. I make wedding cakes in my 'spare' time. Someday, I hope to have my own bakery.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church. My parents allowed us to experience other religions growing up. I never felt the same spirit in other churches as I did in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. In my late teens and early twenties, I made some decisions that took me away from the church. I was not active in the church for the better bart of 10 years. After my daughter was born, I realized that I needed to set a better example for her. I can't expect her to do as I say and not as I do. I wanted her to be raised in the church and have a personal relationship with her Heavenly Father. I am so grateful for the atonement of my Saviour and Brother, Jesus Christ. Through his infinite sacrifice, I am able to repent of my sins and short comings and be with my family forever. I never realized how much I missed the church until I came back. I was overcome with emotion and with the spirit. I am so grateful for my Heavenly Father and restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, specially prepared to restore the fullness of the gospel to the earth. I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. I am thankful that we have a prophet of God on the earth today to speak to us. I love gospel and the joy and hope it brings to my life.

How I live my faith

I am active in our little branch and love the members. I just recieved a calling to be the 2nd counselor in the primary presidency. This is the first time I've been in any presidency and I'm nervous and excited. I don't have a visiting teaching companion yet but I am looking forward to it.
