Hi I'm April
I'm a wife, mother, lover of nature, and Army officer. I'm a Mormon.
I am a strong woman with a wonderful little family. I played soccer in college, married my best friend right before I graduated, and then we both enlisted in the Army National Guard. The next few years were busy with graduate school, my husband's schooling, and the blessing of a little girl joining our family. After graduate school I commissioned as an officer in the Army Reserve and my husband commissioned as an officer in the Army. We've been busy ever since!
Why I am a Mormon
Although I "grew up in the church" and always had a testimony that this church was Christ's church, it wasn't until college that I really understood what a relationship with God meant. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ (separate beings) love us individually and care about our lives because they want us to progress and return to them. Knowing that God is rooting for me to do well, and has provided the atonement, prophets, and the Holy Ghost to help me sort through the confusion in life is a great comfort to me. I am a Mormon because following the Gospel has brought me happiness and inner peace.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by carrying my values with me wherever I go. Whether teaching youth in church, helping with a service project, or training to give aid to those in need, I have the confidence that who I am and what I believe will influence the situation for good.
