Hi I'm Stacey

I am a Mormon.

About Me

I came from a small ranching community in Idaho. I grew up with cattle and horses and for the most part loved it. I love adventure and love new things. I am married to a military man and have had the opportunity to live in several different places around the United States, all of which I have loved. We are a blended family. I came with a daughter who is now 14 and became the stepmom of three kids, a twin boy and girl who are now 26 and a boy who is now 21. We have been a family for 14 years. It has been a growing and learning experience and I love them all very much, even through the teenage years! I love making new friends and seeing new things. I am constantly involved in life inside and outside of the church. I have an adventurous spirit, and like to do many outdoor things like hiking, biking, swimming. I have even tried a min- triathlon. Maybe some day I will venture out to try a bigger one.! I have even tried skydiving.. So now you know I am an adrenaline junkie. I love to go to movies and eat good chocolate. What woman doesn't love chocolate? I work hard outside the home and at home and sometimes have been referred to by my children as a slave driver. So I try to compensate by having just as much fun with them too.. We are an amusement park family and we love roller coasters! I am also an avid reader. I like mystery, sci-fi, fantasy and uplifting books. I am always writing ideas down to write my own book. I love being a mom, wife and entrepreuner.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother has always been the example for me from day one. She was a member her whole life. My father was a convert when I was 6 years old. And I am so grateful for that because my dad was my hero. I think I always knew the church was true ever since my brother and I were able to go to the temple with my parents and be sealed with them for eternity. It is still a very vivid image in my head of that day and I will never forget all of us around the altar being sealed. My father was able to baptize me at the age of 8. And that is another image emblazon on my memory forever. I remember that day and the feeling I had when I came out of the water and felt so clean and pure. I have always had the gospel in my home and have been taught by my parents about the importance of family and relying on a Heavenly Father to guide me. I am a mormon because I never feel as good and at peace as when I am practicing my religion and living up to my covenants. I am a mormon because I know no better way to help others find true peace and knowledge than to be an example to them and share my faith with them. I am a mormon because the gospel of Jesus Christ is true and I feel it in my heart every day.

How I live my faith

Entrenched! That is how I live my faith by being entrenched in it.I have served in many callings in our young women's organiization, our chidrens organization and in relief society, our womens organization as well. I have recently been called to teach early morning seminary to our high school youth. It requires me to study and prepare daily the scriptures we are learning. Which in turn helps me as well. I love learning from the youth and helping them learn too. My daughter and I work together on her personal progress which is a program where they make goals and complete projects that are at least 10 hours long. These goals are all spritually based. I try and encourage her. As a family we try to read our scriptures daily together and work on family history on Sundays. It is fun to watch my daughter putting her own book together and enjoying it. I have the opportunity to be an example at work. I meet new people every day as I travel from one point to the other and quite often have an opportunity to discuss religion and faith. As I live in a very religious area of all faiths, I have learned to love all these people and love to answer their questions about being a mormon and what it really is about.
