Hi I'm E. V. Sides

I am a single mom and full time student trying to have a better life for myself and my children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single mom with four of my five children still at home. I am going to school full time to get my elementary and special education degree. I love to camp, hike and enjoy nature. I also like spending time with friends and family playing games and wathcing movies. One of my favorite things to travel and go see is lighthouses.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to many different churches. My mom did her best to make sure I had a Christian upbringing but something was always missing. I was a lost teenager looking for answers and I found it through a friend and his family. It was through them and some other friends that I made that helped me to find out that The LDS Church was true and it has helped me strengthen myself and my family as an adult to know that we are doing what we can to care about ourselves and others. Another reason I am a Mormon is that we don't judge others for what we believe in. In the other church's I went to they were always bashing others and I was always uncomfortable and as part of our faith we are taught to allow others to believe what they want and not judge them for that but to accept them for who they are.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others in the church and around the community. I work with the kids in my ward and love teaching them. I strive to become better daily in my life and to help my family want to do the same. We have family scripture study and prayer on a daily basis as a family. I also love to go visit teach the sisters on my visiting teaching route and get to know them. As I get the opportunity I try to do genealogy work for my family so when I go to the Temple I can do the work for them they were unable to do on the earth.
