Hi I'm Angeline

I'm a scouter, I'm a hospice volunteer, I'm vegan, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am the mother of 6 children and absolutely love it. While I am educated as a teacher, I have opted to stay home and raise my own children full time. I love serving as Den Leader in my sons' Cub Pack, and as Venture leader in my daughters' Crew. I love being a hospice volunteer, going to Jazzercise, and mountain biking with my family. Being raised in Latin America, I love learning about cultures and people. Shopping at ethnic grocery stores (and cooking later) makes me happy. As a fan of "Forks Over Knives" I eat vegan whenever I can.

Why I am a Mormon

While I descend from Mormon pioneers and early converts from Denmark, England, and Wales, I went through my own conversion process as a teen and young adult. I continue to be Mormon because of the tremendous strength I find through my faith in Christ to face life's challenges and heartaches. Knowing that I am a daughter of a loving Heavenly Father who has a specific plan for me gives me the strength to face tough challenges and do hard things. When I was in my twenties I had to say goodbye to my mother and best friend after her long battle with cancer. It was my faith in God's plan for me that not only helped me get through that excruciatingly difficult experience, but helped me emerge a better person, more compassionate of the pain of others, and 100% committed to my role as a mother. It is because of my knowledge of eternal families and the eternal nature of the soul that I look forward to our reunion some day. It is that knowledge as well that helps me in my work as a hospice volunteer to reach out to others as they face the last days of their mortal lives.

How I live my faith

I love working with people. I serve the children of the church in various capacities as a leader and teacher. I serve the children in my community as a school volunteer. I also serve in my community as a hospice volunteer, visiting the terminally ill who are home bound and often alone as they face the end of their lives.

What is faith?

Faith is trusting that God, as your loving Father in Heaven has a plan for your life. It's understanding that He wants you to learn and grow from your experiences, especially the difficult ones. It's knowing that He is by your side through your pain and heartache. Faith gives you the power to go forward and do difficult things. It gives you the strength to obey God's commandments and accept His will in your life. The result of exercising faith in your life is achieving tremendous peace. Show more Show less
