Hi I'm Stacey.

And I'm STILL looking for a better profile picture.

About Me

The first thing you should know is that I'm a work in progress. Even after I'm dead I think God will still have a few renovations to make... In the meantime, I'm raising four kids and a husband, working part-time for the local school district, and trying to figure out what's for dinner tonight.

Why I am a Mormon

During my youth, my mother was active in the Church and my father wasn't. I was definitely raised Mormon, but had to choose later for myself whether I wanted to STAY Mormon. Why did I stay? I'm committed to the Gospel because I know it's true, based on hundreds of small and personal witnesses from the Holy Spirit.

How I live my faith

I don't have any religious bumper stickers on my minivan, but neither do I shy away from opportunities to live and talk about my faith. I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. I love Him and try to show that by keeping His commandments and the promises I've made to my Father in Heaven. When I was younger I served as a missionary in Portugal and I'm currently serving in the Women's Ministry in our home congregation. I also try to live my faith in the day-to-day choices I make, like letting someone else go before me in the check out line, giving my best efforts at work and at home, and being active in my community. I know one day I will stand before the Lord and account for how I've lived my life, so I try to do the best I can, everyday. And I repent, A LOT.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Honestly, my favorite book on earth. But aside from that, it's additional scripture like the Bible (which I love too), written by prophets through inspiration from God. What I like about the Book of Mormon most is that it is easy to understand and apply to my life. There's wisdom in there, but it's not just that. When I read that book, the Holy Ghost stays with me more. He inspires me more, and I'm able to make better choices that are more in line with what my Heavenly Father wants for me. Show more Show less
