About Me

 I love being a wife and a mum and spending time with my family. I grew up touring with my parents and siblings as we performed around Australia. I've always sung and believe that music can touch souls. 

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon household but it wasn't until I was 15 that I wanted to really know if it was true. I prayed about it and felt a peace about it that I hadn't felt about anything before. I knew that it was true. Once you know something like that, it directs your life to places you would never expect and blesses your life like you wouldn't believe!

Personal Stories

How can your talents and gifts bless others?

 Just like love, a talent is worth nothing unless it is shared with others.

What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?

My faith has sustained me through personal trials including losing my brother in a car accident. Because of my belief in eternal families, I don't feel despair. I am blessed with a peace that even though I may not understand the reason for all things, that I am loved and that I can see him again.

How I live my faith

 My husband and I feel responsible for those in our community and so do what we can to help others. Whether it's being someone to talk to, or helping friends move or clean. I find it helps me keep an eternal perspective on my life and how blessed I am, and reminds me not to take anything forgranted.  I also work with the Young Women in my area aged 12-17. We have activities on a Thursday night where we learn about different core values like Integrity and Virtue. We try to always make activities fun or spiritually uplifting or both! We also learn together every Sunday about how we can integrate the gospel into our lives.
