Hi I'm Traci.

I was born and raised in Alaska. I am a stay-at-home mother of 4, am married to my best friend, and love to serve. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been happily married for over 13 years and I am a mother to four beautiful children. I like to be involved in their lives so I volunteer in my children's schools which I love. For some "me" time I love to run and exercise, even though it means getting up super early . I enjoy being active outdoors, hiking and camping, and love the time we spend time together as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church and I have always felt that the things I was taught from a young age were true. The experiences I've had in my life have helped me to know that I am a daughter of God, that He loves me. I know He is always there for me. The more closely I live the Gospel the happier I am.

How I live my faith

I love to help others and being a member of the Church has given me many opportunities from serving a mission in Venezuela to teaching young children, from planning activities for large groups to visiting one on one with someone. Currently, I serve in the Church helping young women ages 12-18 to make goals that will help them recognize and develop their talents. I enjoy being around these young women because they are awesome and I want them to see what their Heavenly Father sees in them. They have value, they have worth and potential, and I don't want them to believe otherwise. Through this service and the other opportunities I've had, I feel the Savior's love for others. I know that He wants us to care for and help each other throughout our lives.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

None of us is perfect and because our Heavenly Father loves us and wants us to return to live with Him again after this life, He provided a way through His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ willingly sacrificed His life for us so that when we repent we can be forgiven of our sins. We can then be worthy to live with God again. Show more Show less
