Hi I'm Candace

I'm an athlete. I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom to a toddler and a newborn, both born at home. I have been married to my husband for almost 3 years. We met in Virginia, where we were going to school and playing on the soccer team. We had our daughter right before finals our senior year of college, but we still managed to graduate. I majored in Family and Child Development and minored in Spanish. After we graduated we moved to the Southwest to enjoy the heat. I love to spend time with my husband. I also love playing; playing soccer, playing the piano and playing with my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives my life purpose and direction. I am a very driven person, and I love pushing myself to see what I can accomplish. When I was in college I was very busy, but able to accomplish a lot. This would not have been possible without the help and strength I receive from being a Mormon. It allowed me a day to rest and relax from my labors, so I could go out again on Monday and do what I needed to do. During the week, when things would get hectic, I would rely on my Savior, Jesus Christ to give me the strength to sustain me. During this time, I also attended Religion classes and grew in my knowledge and love for Jesus, and His Gospel. I knew and still know that if I am struggling or in need of His divine guidance, He will be there for me, and He will answer my prayers. He lives and loves me, and has given us direction on this earth so we are not wandering alone. He has given us scriptures, the Holy Ghost, and a living prophet who tell us how to be happy, successful and show us how we can return to live with our Father in Heaven and his Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I play the piano for the children so they can sing during Sunday school. They learn about Jesus, and other fun songs. It is rewarding and fun to see their smiles and energy each week.
