Chat With a Mormon Online
I'm a stay at home with two young boys. I love taking care of my boys and watching them grow. It can be hard at times but the regards far outweigh the difficulties. I graduated from Brigham Young University in nursing and work occasionally now that I have children. I have spent most of my time working in an emergency room. My husband works from home and is able to spend a lot of time with our family. My sons hardly go a couple hours without seeing their dad. We are so lucky to get to spend so much time together as a family. I come from a family of 10 children, 8 of which were born in 8 years. Growing up was a bit crazy at time with that many kids, but somehow my mom managed it. My brothers and sisters are now my best friends and I can't imagine my life without them. My mother died when I was 20 years old. I miss her everyday. I especially miss her during important events, like my children's births. But I know that I am sealed to her for eternity and that I can be with her again some day. And I'm sure she is watching me from heaven and helping me along the way. I know she has comforted me when I've really needed it.
When I was a child I was a member of this church mainly because my parents were. I had a little bit of a testimony and felt the spirit at times, but my testimony wasn't very strong. As I got older, I began to build my own testimony by being receptive to the spirit and by seeking the truth myself. Since that time, I have undeniably felt the spirit witness to me, many times, that this gospel is true.
My faith is involved in every part of my life. There are the specific church type things I do, like teaching the young children at church each sunday, but they are just a small part of what I do. I speak of Jesus and Heavenly Father all throughout the day in my home. I do this even more now than I used to since I have little children that I am trying to teach and discipline. I try to act as Jesus would want me to by doing service to others, having patience and showing love, among other things.
