Hi I'm Valerie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 34 years old and have been blessed to stay home with my kids over the past 4 years. I am currently studying through the BYU-Idaho Pathway program and hope to eventually obtain my bachelor degree. I have been married for 10 years and have two beautiful children, 12 years and 5 years old. My husband is not a member of the LDS church but supports our decision to attend church and the way we live. I love to read and learn, and read anything that will teach me something new!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love my Heavenly Father. I know that the things we believe in are true and have helped me greatly in this journey of life. I've made many mistakes in my life and have walked a bumpy road, but with the help of my Heavenly Father and my Savior Jesus Christ I have been able to find the right direction and peace from doing what is right. I have felt their love and know that I must continue learning and changing my life to be more like they would want me to be. As I do this I feel their love and see all the many ways that I have been helped along the way. I am greatly blessed because I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others. Currently I am the chorister for the children's primary. I teach songs of faith to our children and often feel that I'm the one learning more than them. I have taught Sunday school classes for the youth and the for the children in the past as well as served a full time mission in Bolivia.
