Hi I'm Aubrie

I grew up in Portland Oregon, and I love sushi. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am mother of one. I love to spend time with my family, drawing, singing, playing the piano, going outdoor, meeting new people with my work, reading religious books, looking at religious artm sharing the gospel, and visit with friends and relatives.  

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both my parents came from less active families, but stayed active, but being a christian is always a choice. I choose to live my life as a disciple of Jesus Christ because I need God in my life. He is my foundation and the maker of all the good in my life. His gospel blesses me and my family. I am mormon because I believe this religion gives me the fullest understanding of God, my relationship with Him, how and why I am here, and what my potential is here on this earth and after I pass on to the next life. At age 23 I had an exprience where God showed me that He was real, and that He forgave me of all my past sins, and loved me more than I could even understand. At that moment I wanted everyone to know of His love and His gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by striving to keep my integrity, and reminding myself of my purpose here on earth. I try to express my love to God by serving God's children, and making this world a better place by my words and actions. I serve in my church by visiting less active members, women who I am assigned to visit every month, visiting people not of my faith and telling them about God. I create and print the Sunday program every week. I also attend our church meetings every week, and I attend our temple every weekend. I also teach my son about God by reading the scriptures, praying to Heavenly Father night and day, helping him memorize scriptures, and I teach him how to make good choices by the good choices I make. 

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

I grew up being taught that I was a divine daughter of a Heavenly Father who loved me. I don't feel the pressure to keep up with what the world around me expects me to be, because of this knowledge and confidence in God and His love for me. For me, a woman is beautiful when she enhances her character, virtues, and ability to love and nurture. Think of the people or persons you love being around. It's not the person who is judgmental, dishonest, competative, complaining, selfish, or prideful. It's the person who is nice, happy, positive, humble, honest, and selfless. Because I feel this way, I focus on being a better wife, mother, and daughter of God by living like the latter person I described. I love being a Mormon woman because I also have a support group of woman who are striving to be the latter person I described. We take care of eachother, and we teach eachother how to be better woman and people. As a church, we belive men and woman are equal. I feel just as equal to my husband in my role and abilities as a woman, as my husband feels just as equal to me in his role and abilities as a man. Instead of feeling I need to compete with my husband, and he with me, we feel that we can complete eachothers roles. We work together. It's like you can't have the peanut butter without the jelly or honey. Neither person is better than the other, rather we are meant to enhance eachother's abilities by the abilities God has given our genders and what He has given us individually. Show more Show less
