Hi I'm Tracy

Born and raised in California, a Georgian for the last 20 years and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 44 year-old stay-at-home wife, and mother of 3. I've been married to my wonderful husband for 25 years and my children are 15, 19 and 21. My oldest, a son, returned from serving a mission, and my daughter will be getting married soon. They have both been away at college, BYU-Idaho, and have greatly enjoyed the experience. I love to read, write, and dabble in different crafts and I spent much of my time playing taxi driver to my youngest who's life revolves around dance; ballet, jazz, tap, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I have often wondered where I'd be, who I'd be, if I didn't have the gospel in my life. I was born to parents who were both raised in the church, so being a member was not an initial choice I had to make, but it has been my choice to continue. I make that choice every day when I choose to follow the principles taught by my Savior. As I have loved you, love one another. I am confused when people tell me Mormon's don't believe in Christ. Our name is The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-Day Saints. There is nothing strange, scary, or remotely unnatural about members of His church. We strive to be upstanding citizens, loyal friends, faithful to our families and in all we do.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best example that I can be, to show Christ-like compassion, mercy, tolerance, acceptance, encouragement, and love. It's scary to put myself out there and share my beliefs with others. I'm afraid of rejection, or embarassing myself by not knowing how to answer their questions. I would say that is one of my biggest weaknesses. I know what I have is more important than anything anyone else could ever know, and I need to stop being afraid and open my mouth and give others the opportunity to know the saving truths that I, and all members know. Christ lives, and through His atononement and by baptims, we may all be forgiven of our sins and live in His presence again.

Who are the Mormons?

I think the most important thing here, is... if you have a question about Mormons, ASK A MORMON! My husband recently said: If you have a question about a Dodge truck, would you go to a Toyota dealer? Go to the source. Show more Show less
