Chat With a Mormon Online
I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful children. Our family loves to be active and we love to be outdoors. My favorite place is the beach. I love exploring the tide pools with my children. I have a passion for swimming and most importantly teaching others to swim. I love that I can make a difference. I love learning new things and sharing what I know with others.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has always been an important part of my life. When I was sixteen my father died and I learned at a young age that life can change in an instant. My family went through a lot of trials with the loss of my Dad. Through those trials the Church was always a safe place, a place of peace and love. Church members helped our family through their love and service. It strengthened my testimony of God's love for me. I knew that I wanted that peace and comfort in my own family someday. Now that I am a wife and mother I can't imagine our life without this Gospel. The happiest day of my life was when our family was sealed in God's temple for time and all eternity.
I have a child with a severe food allergy. Sending her to school each day is very challenging and scary for our family. Through prayer I have been told that the Lord knows her trials and He will keep her safe. Because of prayer I have faith and not fear.
I personally do family history so that I can bless my ancestors with the same blessings I enjoy. I love to learn more about our ancestors. I have developed a deep love for my in-laws because of learning about their heritage. I do family history so I can tell my children who they are and what they are a part of. It's so much bigger than ourselves.
I have found that when I start my day with prayer I am able to stay closer to the Lord. I am able to have peace and faith and trust that He is aware of me and my family and our needs. I am able to dedicate my day to Him, asking for the Spirit to help me accomplish all that I need to. I am able to ask Him to guide my day so that I will know who needs service and how I can best help those around me. With my business I can pray for direction on how to best teach the children I come into contact with. I know that when I start my day with meaningful prayer the Lord does guide and direct me.
I served several years in my ward as the President of the woman's organization (known as Relief Society). During this time I had the opportunity to work with other ward leaders to help serve families who were struggling both temporally and spiritually. Most importantly I have been blessed with the opportunity to know, love, and serve members of our ward personally.
