Hi I'm Angela Beth

I'm a woman, friend, wife, daughter, sister, and mother. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife of almost 15 years, and a stay-at-home mom of three by choice. I love singing, reading, baking, cross-stitching, camping, and watching "The Amazing Race" with my husband. I plan on becoming a nurse-midwife after my children are in school, and hope to make birth a safer and more integrated part of life. I love to watch BBC productions, and am always up for a good mystery or romance. I hope to find out more about my mom's Yorkshire and my father's Washington County NC genealogies (those are intriguing mysteries in and of themselves).

Why I am a Mormon

I was a Mormon as a child because it was the religion of my parents. I am a Mormon as an adult because I know it is true. I try to read the Book of Mormon daily, and the Spirit of the Lord witnesses to my mind and to my heart that it is true. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that he restored the gospel in its entirety to the earth. I know that a prophet of God, Thomas S. Monson, leads and guides our church today. These are revelations that have come to me personally through the Spirit that reinforce the teachings of the church. A church or other religion can espouse and teach whatever beliefs it chooses, but unless the members confirm for themselves that the teachings are from God, the dedication to the cause will only be tenuous at best.

How I live my faith

I serve in the leadership of my congregation's women's organization. I coordinate the teachers and lessons for each Sunday women's meeting, and try to reach out to the women we serve. I also get to teach a brief singing lesson to the Nursery children (aged 18 months to 3 years) each Sunday.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Angela Beth
We need to build good relationships with our children, so that when they do encounter pornography, they will come to us with problems or questions. We need to educate our children about the purpose of intimate relationships, and help them understand that pornography is an empty promise that only leads to heartache, pain, and further sin. We need to prepare our children to be in the world, and guide them in making the choices that will make them not OF the world. Show more Show less
