Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in Utah and am blessed to have been able to attend general conference in the beautiful Conference Center.

About Me

I am a mom of 1 and soon to be 2! I graduated from college with an accounting degree and love to organize even though being a mom is the hardest job of all. I love being creative, digital scrapbooking, making things, cooking, ZumBa, and learning a new skill.

Why I am a Mormon

Because it is the finest way to live. Not only do I have a deep and sincere testimony that my Heavenly Father lives, loves, and knows each of us individually but that we can have the best perspective on life. Life isn't easy, perfect or free from problems, but I love how I can always turn to prayer, my scriptures, and worshipping in holy temples for guidance. The peace I have felt and continue to feel through the companionship of the Holy Ghost is the best gift I can ever have. I hope I can never lose this gift, and try to keep myself doing service. I am blessed to have been raised in a family who taught us the gospel. I was baptized at age 8 and hope my family will gain their own unique and individual testimonys of this blessed gospel.

How I live my faith

I attend church weekly, pay my tithing monthly, and attend the temple twice a month with my husband. We make sure to try and visit 3-4 different families in our ward area with in the month and share a short gospel message with them and form better bonds. I have taught children's classes, planned monthly Women's get togethers for education/cooking/uplifting purposes, and led the music during class time at church. Staying involved has helped me feed my growing testimony and gain further insights from those followers around me.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Heather
I would say it starts with teaching in the home. I grew up in a home where my parents explained the sacredness of marital intimacy during a marriage and that we are not to view or abuse any part of our body. I was glad to have been taught these things by my parents at a small age of 8 years old vs. finding out from friends on the playground or even worse searching out on the internet. I feel passionate that children have a right to know about marraige adult things and must hear them from a parent. It does not need to be lenghty, but at least our children can know who to turn to when they do see something that they don't understand, can't explain, or do not know what to do. Sadly the statistics indicate that children will view hard core pornography by the time they are 10 years old, and I want my own children to know they can come to me FIRST. That way we can talk through it and get them on the steps of recovery before a curiosity becomes a more involved engagement, and into a further addiction that is nearly impossible to recover from - especially if exposed at a very young age. Start with an internet filter (doesn't stop all but it is a start) Computer in a high traffic area Parents limit and watch child TV and Internet use Show more Show less
