Hi I'm Heather

I love my six children, my grand piano, Korea, Japan and my husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated in humanities with a BA in history. I served a mission for my church in Korea. I married an engineer. We have six children. We spent 4 years in Japan with our family as expats. I love playing the piano and am proficient. I have a penchant for medical knowledge. I am an EMT and hope to someday become a P.A.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a member of the church, but my own testimony cemented when I was 20 and in college. At that point I decided that I really needed to know whether Jesus was the Christ, the Savior of the world. I wanted a sure testimony that the Book of Mormon was true. If the Book of Mormon is true, Jesus really is the Savior of the world. I received, after many months of prayer, a sure witness that the Book of Mormon is true. I am so happy to know that Jesus really is the Savior of the world. And that all the Book of Mormon talks about and the doctrines it teaches are true. This knowledge is the foundation of my life.

How I live my faith

I am the organist at church. I love my calling as organist! It's rewarding to be a proficient pianist at church. You are not paid, monetarily speaking, but you have a skill that not many people can do. And you are always being used and asked to share your talent.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, of course not. I live only by non-Mormons. My next door neighbor and I borrow from each other all the time, and watch each others pets and dogs. My hairdresser is not a Mormon, even though I know one who is. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Our bodies are created in the image of God. Our bodies are beautiful. Disfiguring our bodies is like disfiguring God. There is already enough literature about the dangers of addictive substances. You don't have to be religious to know not to participate in those things. Our bodies are called temples because our spirit dwells in our body. The temple is called the House of God. Our body is the house of our spirit. Show more Show less
