Hi I'm Mimi
I'm a Singing Bookworm.
I'm on the shorter side of average height and am half way through my twenties. I was born a blonde, and my hair has slowly darkened. I have lived in the East, Midwest, and West in the US and in Brazil. I have never lived anywhere that I did not think had its own way to be beautiful. I am a college graduate, wife, and mother. If I am happy, I'm singing. If I'm sad, I'm singing. I prefer to sing Christian songs, church hymns, and songs from musicals. I am trying to learn how to garden, sew, and play the piano. I enjoy scrapbooking, and my only real addiction is reading. Putting down a book when the hour has grown late is a recurrent struggle. There are only two things I need to be beautiful: a knowledge of who I am and a smile on my face.
I was born into the LDS Church by a mother whose family has been members for generations and a father who joined during his college years. I stayed in the Church, because I have received answers to prayers, because I have realized that happiness comes from living the gospel, and because I feel the Spirit testifying to me daily that the decisions I am making are the correct ones. No other decision in my life has brought me as much peace and joy as being faithful to the covenants I have made. Being a Mormon has not made me immune to sorrow nor untouched from heartache, but it has provided me with the foundation I have needed to overcome all obstacles and sadness life has placed in my way.
I live my faith every day. It's like my skin. I can't shed it. It is a part of me. I try to find some way to serve every single day. I do this in various ways. When I hear of a woman who has a heavy load, such as moving, sick, overwhelmed, etc., I call her and offer my service. When the missionaries need a member to go out with them to teach, then I offer to go and share Christ's invitation to come to Him, repent, and be baptized. I write letters to women who have not come to Church recently, and I invite them to return, tell them of myself, and share a gospel message. I go into the homes of other sisters to see how they are doing and if they need any extra attention that month. I invite young mothers over or give them rides to the park, because I know how important it is to have someone over the age of 5 to talk to during the day. I provide meals for people who are without work or sick or otherwise needy. There have been many people who have been angels in my life, and I strive daily to be an angel in the lives of others.
