Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because it has led me to know who I am in this vast universe. I am a daughter of God. It means that I am significant no matter how small I may feel sometimes because the Creator of everything knows me by name. Being a Mormon has taught me to love my Savior, Jesus Christ, with every fiber of my being. I have gained the knowledge that He lives, in a body of flesh and bone, and stands as my personal advocate and representative before my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I believe that part of living my faith is being a good steward over God's creations and that which He has placed in my care. My husband and I live in a cottage-style bungalow on a 6800 square foot lot that's 50 feet wide. We make the most of every little inch of our garden that we can. I've designed and created our gardens to be a water-wise certified backyard wildlife habitat. Because of all the critters around our garden it has created a wonderful natural balance, so I don't have to use pesticides to grow fruit and vegetables. The greatest treat for me is to sit under our plum tree, pull a ripe plum off a branch, clean it off on my shirt, and eat it. It can't get better than that.

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

There is as much diversity among Mormon women as there are among the world’s cultures. We’re all different and unique… so I can only speak for myself. I am a college graduate. I had a career in information technology in my 20’s. I got married in my early 30’s. I didn’t find out I was unable to have children until I was almost 40, so my family is made up of my husband and me. I am the CEO/founder of my own small company and work from my home studio creating art and photography for stationery, publications, and websites. My husband and I are equal partners in our marriage... although my husband may disagree and say that I make the decisions more often than he does. We complement one another and work together as a team running our home and making it a place that is a peaceful, joyful and happy place. I don’t cook but my husband is an amazing cook, so he does all the cooking and all the grocery shopping. I love working up a sweat while digging in the dirt, so I do all the work in the garden. Together we have tackled home remodeling projects to restore our 1940’s home. I’ve hung sheet rock plastered and painted, set tile, and designed floor plans. My husband has cut the tile I set, constructed cabinetry, and helped me make my visions become realities. And together we’ve gained a deep appreciation for power tools. I’ve lived as an independent single woman, and I now live as an independent married woman married to my best friend. Show more Show less
