Hi I'm Angela.

I'm a wife, and stay-at-home mother of 2. I enjoy motorcycle rides and sewing. I'm happy because I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have Associate's and Bachelor's Degrees, both in Geography, but I have a very poor sense of direction. I love to garden and do craft projects like making jewelry, cards, and clothing. Some jobs I have had include: University Philosophy Department Secretary, Grocery Store Produce and Bakery Clerks, and Secretary of an Internet Marketing company.

Why I am a Mormon

Top 10 Things I Love About Being a Mormon: 10. I love the challenge to continually better myself, eventhough self-mastery is difficult. 9. I love having very worthy things (both events and people) to dedicate my energy toward, eventhough it often makes me inconvenienced or uncomfortable. 8. I love knowing I have a Savior who understands my pains, eventhough I still have to feel them. 7. I love feeling close to my Father in Heaven when I repent, eventhough it challenges my pride to do so. 6.I love the rewards of living morally clean, eventhough it is sometimes less than socially acceptable. 5. I love the feeling of family among my ward/congregation members, eventhough I struggle to avoid judging and being judged by them. 4. I love being reminded so often that family is the most important purpose in my life, even if my family's choices have potential to make me sad or upset. 3. I love having guidance for modern challenges from a living prophet, even if he has to say something that pricks my pride to hear. 2. I love having exposure to uplifting music, eventhough it's never going to be popular in the public arena. 1. I love having the privilege of personal communication with God, eventhough it is more work to get my own guidance than to follow a crowd, even a well-intentioned one. There are many more reasons I love being a Mormon. Do me one favor, if you ever have questions about Mormons, ask one who loves it!

How I live my faith

I enjoy opportunities to help out in the Church, and that they change frequently (every couple years), so we get the chance to develop many different kinds of skills. Right now, I'm the President of the women's organization. I have two other women I consult with, called counselors, and a secretary to keep us all organized. We are in charge of helping the bishop find those who have the need for welfare assistance from the Church. This includes any person in our congregation/ward's boundaries even if they are not members of our Church. We also plan fun and spiritual activities for the women in our area to attend and get to know each other, as well as learn home making and life skills. We also have a system of checking on each woman in our congregation/ward boundaries each month, which helps to keep a close network and be aware of each other's needs. We like to bring meals to families when they are experiencing difficult times, or after they bring a new baby home from the hospital and they are adjusting to new life. We like to help people clean house and move furniture when moving in or out. We function quite like many families do for each other. It brings me a great sense of security and well-being to be surrounded by people who love me and are happy to help when I need it.
