Hi I'm Bethany

I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I'm a daughter. I'm a sister. I'm a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a wife to an amazing man, and a mother to three beautiful kids. I love my family and the gospel! I am also a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a photographer.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a simple testimoney of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know my Father in Heaven loves me and that I am His daughter. I know He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to live and die for me. I know the Atonement is real and because of it, I can be forgiven and return to live with my Heavenly Father and be with my family forever! I know that we have the restored gospel here upon the earth. I know we have a prophet who speaks to us today. I know the Book of Mormon is a true book and that we can learn so much of our Savior through it. I am Mormon because this gospel teaches me about my Savior, Jesus Christ, and how to be like him! I am a Mormon because I believe that this gospel is the one true way to return to live with my loving Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have been so blessed to have the gospel a part of my life from birth. I have learned so many spiritual and temporal things from the people whom I've been able to associate with at church. Many are people that I might not even know if I didn't have the church in my life. I am grateful to be given the opportunity, and challenge, of meeting so many different people, who make me want to be a better person.

How can faith in Jesus Christ influence us in our marriages and family relationships? in our friendships?

My marriage wouldn't work if Jesus Christ's influence wasn't at the head. I feel like because the Savior is first in both my life and my husband's we are in better harmony, communication, and love. I often think of what my Savior would do before I react on many occasions with my spouse and my children. I also know that when I make a mistake with my family, I can repent, all because of the Atonement and a loving Heavenly Father. Knowing that my family can be together forever helps us have a stronger marriage and family unit. Show more Show less
