Hi I'm Harmony

Volleyball is my favorite hobby. I am training to be a parent coach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife to a fun husband and a mother to 4 hilarious kids, not to mention twins. I play volleyball for the fun of it and run for the fit of it. I grew up in the dancing world and find joy in watching all dance styles. I love reading and writing about fiction and metaphors. I am studying to be a parent coach and teach parenting classes. Oh, and I love to eat delicious food.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because life is about the small choices. Although I was raised in the church, my true conversion came when I was fourteen. I was at an Especially For Youth Lds conference, when I had found myself in a very entitled mindset or in other words spoiled. I hate to admit it but I felt like my family was there to serve me with nothing in return. On this particular day, I chose to attend a certain speakers lesson whom everyone said was hilarious. I wanted some real entertainment. Within the first ten minutes I thought I wanted to bolt for the door. The speaker said he felt impressed to tell a personal story instead of his original lesson. I was irritated but stayed anyway. He told of how he had acted rude to his mother the day of her routine surgery. Even as she smiled and they wheeled her away, he gave her a dirty look. Well, her surgery turned out to be fatal and he never saw her again alive. I was touched to the core that day, tears streaming uncontrollably. The speaker was in tears too. But I knew in the moment that I didn't want that to be me. I also knew that I had to make a choice. Leave the conference and forget or change my life. The following months and years would prove to be difficult. I had to wake up each morning in prayer and emerse myself in the scriptures each night. But the application of small choices strengthened my testimony. I saw the Savior change my life. Even now when things get tough, I remember those basic principals of the gospel. During a pivotal time in my life, I was given the choice. Small but true and that's why I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints real.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through raising my kids on the principals of the gospel. We read scriptures each night so we can each learn and understand what the Lord wants. We also pray morning and night together as a family so we can ask for guidance and strength. We get together every Monday night to discuss our schedules and share gospel lessons. I also serve in the church with the 10 and 11 year old girls where we learn about the principals of the church and do fun activities, things I wish I'd learned at their age.
