Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in Idaho. I am a homemaker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I got married in 2005 and I would say we are best friends. We enjoy our time together, we love to travel, watch movies while eating our stove top homemade popcorn, and enjoy the outdoors. We don't have any children yet, but we are excited to start the adoption process this year. In our home I try to keep a peaceful, happy, clean, and loving atmosphere. I find that as I keep my home clean and organized it directly affects the attitude of those in my family and brings the spirit into our home. Currently, I enjoy running, teaching aerobics, sewing, cooking, blogging, crafts and I am always willing to try something new.

Why I am a Mormon

As most people raised in the Mormon faith, I was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was 8 years old. As I grew up in the Church I was always fascinated with the doctrine of eternal families. Since my early attraction to this concept I have learned through personal experience how important eternal families are in God's plan. I know I will return to live with my Heavenly Father by keeping His commandments, and that I will return to Him with my family to live together for the eternities. Another thing I have grown to love is the power of prayer. There are times in our life when we pray and expect an answer right away; however some times we are not answered quickly or in the way we had anticipated. During these times, it is important to know that my Heavenly Father will guide and direct my life so that when the responses to personal prayer come I understand and accept them. My prayers have been answered before and I know they will be answered again if I am faithful.

How I live my faith

I best live my faith by fulfilling my responsibilities at Church and home. At this time I have the opportunity to help sisters, mothers, daughters, families and friends by organizing temporal assistance in times of need. It has been a wonderful experience to get to know people on a more personal level. As we help others in our lives it strengthens us and helps us become more grateful for the blessing we have in our life. Apart from this responsibility I also serve through my assignment as a visiting teacher. Recently, I had the chance to give service to one a family I visit regularly, and as I served I felt the love of my Heavenly Father for them. I am grateful to serve others because I know that as I serve them I am simultaneously serving my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ.
