Hi I'm Monique

I'm a wife, a mother, a teacher and a daughter of God. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of three chilren and am married to my best friend. I am a life member of the church. My parents were converts before I was born. I am 7th of 9 brothers and sisters (his/hers and theirs). I currently serve as in our Women's organization presidency in my ward; I teach 4th grade; I chaeffeur children to piano, gymnastics, seminary, school, art class and anywhere else they need to go; I love to backpack, camp, play games, bake and read; and I long to travel the world; our oldest is on a mission to Brasilia Brazil.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but had to go through my own conversion. During my senior year in high school I felt like I was living a shadow life with a pretty mask on showing myself as a good Mormon girl but I wasn't sure if I believed it or not. I struggled for almost a year, searching, reading, pondering and praying and finally I had a personal and spiritual confirmation of this church's truthfulness and of my Heavenly Father's plan for His children. I know I am His daughter and that He loves me and wants me to come home. I live every day thankful for that knowledge. This life is hard but knowing I'm not alone is everything to me.

How I live my faith

Being an elementary teacher in my community is so rewarding. I love to be a part of a strong, loving, supportive community which values children. I enjoy volunteering at community events, attending various types of events like concerts, markets, celebratory days and exercise events. At church I serve the women through planning and putting on social and spiritual events that build unity, love and knowledge of a variety of topics. All through my service in the church I have had many opportunities to teach the youth and adults. Teaching is my passion and calling.
