Hi I'm Andrea
I'm a Mormon.
I am a homemaker, part-time accountant, and a full-time wife and mother of three children. I enjoy baking, children's literature, hiking in the mountains, playing the piano, and going on dates with my husband. Autism in children is fascinating to me, and I would like to add classes to my teaching degree to increase my understanding of that.
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised as a member of the church, and have chosen to remain active for many reasons. I know the Book of Mormon is a true book of scripture. I love having a living prophet who can guide our family in uncertain times. The church organization and teachings are standardized throughout the world, so no matter where we live, we have the same faith and a new group of friends. Most importantly, I want to be with my family forever and the gospel teaches us how that is possible.
How I live my faith
Because we want to teach our children the values we have been raised with as members of the LDS church, my husband and I read scriptures and pray with them every day. We have a family night once a week where we take turns teaching each other from the scriptures, have activities or games, treats and prayer. This strengthens our relationships but also strengthens our children to make good choices at school and when they're away from home. We also attend Sunday worship services at our church and mid-week youth activities. I organize monthly events for the women in our church group, which teach everything from gardening to financial planning and are sometimes just dinner and visiting.
