Hi I'm Bethany

I'm not perfect, but I'm trying to be the best I can be. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of 5 beautiful children and married to an amazing man. We currently live in Okinawa Japan with the Air Force. I love singing, am learning the piano, love reading, traveling and am trying to love running. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but just like everyone else I still needed to gain my own testimony and know it was true for myself. I have prayed, fasted, studied and pondered and can tell you that this church, this gospel is true. Being Mormon isn't just something I do or a place I go on Sunday, it is truly who I am. It is an inseparable part of me. It brings me joy and peace and helps me keep going every day no matter the challenges I face or the uncertainty of this world. I would be lost without this gospel and the knowledge it gives me of my savior and redeemer, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

My husband and I have the privilege of teaching the 14 to 18 year olds every Sunday at church. We are teaching the New Testament this year, and the opportunity to study these scriptures, and then discuss them with these teenagers is simply wonderful. I live my faith through first learning it through the scriptures and God's counsel to us and then trying my best to apply those principles. I live with integrity, trying to feel and show God's love to all around me and being who Heavenly Father would want me to be every day.
