Hi I'm Stefanie

I am a mom, a wife and I am Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah. I have lived in Utah all my life and love it. My family is here in Utah and they are my love and support. I married my wonderful husband our first year in college. He has become my rock and my love.I have gone to school and gotten a degree in teaching. I taught school for three years and loved it. Then my husband and I were bless with a miracle, a new baby, through adoption. After receiving our first miracle I quite working and became a stay at home mom, which is even more work. Two years after receiving our first miracle we were blessed with our second. I am now a mother of the two cutest little boys ever! They make me smile and laugh everyday, they also keep me on my toes. We are hoping in the next little while to add a girl to our life, once again through adoption. Being a wife and a mother is the most important thing in my life right know.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school I struggled with a lot of things. My mom told me to pray about it and see what happens. Well after a long while I felt a change in myself. It was not all of a sudden but slowly and surely. I started studying and reading all that I could on the gospel. My mom came up to me and asked if thing were still hard in my life and I relieved that they were only hard when I carry the struggles along, letting the lord help me made thing a lot easier. Latter on when my husband and I tried to start a family. I was crushed to find out I could not have children. I felt like I was being denied blessing and that I was being punished. I got down on my knees and prayed like I have never prayed before. I came to the knowledge that the Lord loves me and wanted me to be a mom. He cried when I cried and was there for me when I needed him. Over time I accepted that I would be a mom through the miracle of adoption. (it is a miracle and a blessing.) I am now grateful that I am able to get my children through adoption and that we can be sealed for eternity.

How I live my faith

I am very active in my church community. Right now I have been called to work with the children. I help to organize them into group so they can be taught. I work with the teacher of the children to help them teach better. I think that my teaching back ground has been a great blessing to I can help teach the kids as much about the gospel as possible. I love working with the kids and seeing the light in their eyes. It always amazes me to see the simple faith of a child. I also have helped to organize and teach the women in the ward, and the teenage girls. I feel my testamony grow with each group I have been blessed to work with. I try to live my faith my example and service.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Stefanie
Mormons believe that families are eternal. The family unit does not end when the your life here on earth ends. If the family has been sealed together in the next life they will still be a family. My husband and I were sealed when we were married and each of our children have been sealed to us. In the next life my boys will still be mine. Show more Show less
