Hi I'm Stacy
I'm a business owner and work-at-home mom. I crave color and chocolate, I love being "online" and I'm a Mormon.
I am a wife, a mother of five and a life enthusiast. I am the founder of a website that connects people worldwide through their love of creative expression and storytelling. I love trees and mountains and I collect sprinkles, which I believe should be used liberally on just about anything!
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I was born to faithful parents who taught me about the life and teachings of our Savior Jesus Christ. I was taught early to love, honor and abide by patterns of righteous living that began generations ago when my ancestors embraced the gospel of Jesus Christ and made great sacrifices to live it. I am a Mormon because I have felt the Spirit or the Holy Ghost testify to my heart numerous times that God lives, that He sent his son Jesus Christ to redeem us and that both God the father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith and through him restored all the doctrines and ordinances we need to be happy now and be with our families in eternity. I am a Mormon because living the gospel makes me happy and helps me navigate my daily life in a time of great uncertainty and shifting values.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by example and through teaching. I'm not perfect, but I try my best everyday to make good decisions. I believe I am accountable to my Heavenly Father for the time, energy and talents He has granted me. I strive to teach my children and others that the way to find daily happiness and lasting joy is by following our Savior Jesus Christ. When we are filled with gratitude and awareness and work to develop personal integrity, then keeping God's commandments is easy. I currently serve as Sunday School teacher to youth who are 12 and 13. I LOVE this calling. It isn't always easy to keep my students' attention--but I thrill to see their eyes when something clicks and when they feel the Spirit testifying to their hearts. We are studying what we call The Plan of Salvation or the answers to the questions, Where did I come from? Why am I here? and What happens after this life? It is truly amazing to discuss with kids (on the brink of independence) the 'big picture' of their life and their eternal potential.
