Hi I'm Tera

I was born in a small farming town in southern Colorado, and then I was raised in central New Mexico. I' m a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother to two wonderful little boys. I also have a stepson who is attending college. I co-own a business with my sister, my dad and my stepmom. One of my favorite things to do is to hang out with my family. I love to be outside and I love traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. When I was about 16 I became inactive, as did most of my family. I was mostly inactive for almost 24 years. I always felt like I should go back to church, but I did not know where or how to even start. When I became a mother with children of my own, I felt I had to find my way back, as I was feeling the weight of the responsibility of my children's salvation. My husband was a non member, and was not excited about the LDS church at the time. But the ways of the world were taking a toll on me and my family and I wanted desperately to come back home to the church. So I did! Just like that! I just started attending the meetings, took missonary lessons and met with our bishop, and I never looked back. I am happy to report, my husband has followed! After taking the missonary lessons he also was baptized! It has been a struggle at times, but I feel so blessed everytime I walk through the doors on Sunday with my family. I love my Savior and I love this church! I love that my children have this solid foundation in these trying times, and I am thrilled that when they are of age they will be baptized as well.

How I live my faith

I currently am in the young nursery teaching 18 month-2 year olds. I am enjoying my calling working with the sweet, little, innocent spirits. I also do visiting teaching, and I love being involved with the sisters in our church.

Are Mormons Christians?

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.....I feel like just the name of our church tells the world the we are Christians. Show more Show less
