Hi I'm Sonja

I'm a wife, mother of five, and I'm a Latter Day Saint!

About Me

I am a stay at home mom raising five beautiful children. I love to exercise, eat healthy and decorate my home. I have a passion for learning and trying new things. My goal is to visit all 50 states by age 50. I taught elementary school before I had children, I taught exercise classes for five years and I finished my first half marathon. My goal is to do a full marathon one day. I have a wonderful husband who supports me in all I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been blessed to have been raised in this gospel, but now I don't have to lean on my parent's testimonies. I have my own. I count my blessings each day as I strive to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. I know that God lives and loves us so much. I know that our Savior, Jesus Christ atoned for each one of us.

How I live my faith

I strive to live the gospel wherever I go. I am involved in my children's school and I try to serve in my church and also around me. I feel blessed to have a wonderful neighborhood where we can serve each other.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is what you really know about the gospel. I have a testimony faith God lives. I have a testimony that Jesus Christ atoned for all of our sins. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a true prophet. I know that this is the true gospel. Show more Show less

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

Anyone can go into the Mormon Church and feel the spirit of the Lord. Only those who are worthy can go into the temples. It is the Lord's house so we try and keep it as pure as possible. Show more Show less
