Hi I'm Desirae

I'm a mom. I'm a teacher. I am a breast cancer survivor. I love to serve. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mom of four amazing kids. Being a mom is my most important job and I am grateful to have the opportunity to do it. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2011. Currently, I am cancer free. The road to recovery has been very long and very hard at times, but the things that I have learned along the way are priceless. I wouldn't change a thing. I love to be creative and to sing and play the piano. I love to serve others both in the church and in my community. Every day is an adventure and I am just trying to enjoy the ride.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that I am a daughter of a Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me by name. My Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered for my sins in Gethsemane so that I can repent when I make mistakes. I have always been a member of the church, but was converted as a teenager when I decided to find out for myself if this church was true. I prayed to my Father in Heaven and read in the Book of Mormon and Bible. Each time I would do these things, I would feel a sweet spirit of peace and comfort telling me that this church is true- that my Father in Heaven loves me- that my Savior loves me and died for me- and that Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son.

How I live my faith

My greatest blessing and greatest challenge is that of being a mother. My Father in Heaven has blessed me with 4 of his beautiful children to teach and nurture here on earth. I have also had a lot of opportunities to work in the different organizations of our church. I have loved each opportunity and by doing my best in each one, I have found joy in serving the Lord. I know that it is through my Savior that I am able to do all things. He eases my burdens and carries me when things get rough. I love to share my testimony and love for the Savior, Jesus Christ. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ is not an easy task. He asks a lot of us, and some days that can get overwhelming, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I know that through perseverance and hard work, the reward at the end will be glorious.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Desirae
Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today. He is a wonderful example of service and I have a testimony that He is the Lord's mouthpiece. He tells us the things our Father would have us know. Show more Show less
