Hi I'm Misty

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small farming community in Oregon. I was baptized into the LDS church when I was eight years old. When I graduated from high school I moved to Hawaii to pursue my education. I majored in Elementary Education with a minor in Spanish. After graduation I stayed in Hawaii to teach fifth grade for five years. During that time I meant my future husband. We were married in 2008. His job in the Army soon relocated us to New York state and then Connecticut, where we currently reside. In June of 2009 we were blessed with a beautiful baby daughter. Soon after she was born, I completed my masters degree in Education with an emphasis in Technology. Now I am keeping busy teaching my daughter home preschool and serving as a teacher for the adults in Sunday School class.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate enough to be born into a Mormon family. My parents were good examples to me and taught me the principles of the Church. But the reason that I am a Mormon is not because I was born into the religion. I am a Mormon because it is the only church on the face of the Earth that has the fullness of the gospel. I love learning all that I can about the Savior through reading the scriptures and the teachings of modern-day prophets.

How I live my faith

I am doing my best to concentrate on the things that really matter in life, like my religion, family, friends, and service. I have tried to rid my life of a lot of activities that just waste my time, such as most television shows and aimless Internet surfing. I am trying to live by the principle of "this life is the time to prepare to meet God." I spend a great deal of time reading the scriptures each day and working on things pertaining to my calling. Of course most of my time is spent raising my beautiful daughter and spending time with my (newly-baptized) husband.
