Hi I'm Aubrey

I live in Texas. I taught high school for 5 years and I'm currently a graduate student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have many roles, including mom, wife, student, daughter, sister and friend. I enjoy spending time with my family and learning new things. I have many hobbies despite my time limits as a new mother; music, sewing, making new foods and being active outdoors. I am studying at a state university to earn my Master's of Education and plan to graduate in August 2011. I love my family and I cherish the little moments every day with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon and choose to continue following the teachings because they are true. Through prayer, I have asked Heavenly Father if Christ truly came to live and die on this earth for me. I have asked if the teachings found in the Book of Mormon are true and if our modern day Prophet has been called of Him. I testify these things are true. I have heard many people declare how wonderful it is that Christ died for us, but I declare how wonderful it is that he lived - that he showed us the way to conduct ourselves and interact with our family, friends and even our enemies. He is my Lord and God, and I can do all things through Him. Through his great sacrifice we can return to live with God our Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon because I know God loves me, I know families are divine, I know God calls prophets to lead his people and I know that Christ paid the price for me to return to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I help organize area activities and events for young women ages 12-18. One of our big activities each year is a conference during the summer and a small committee works all year to plan a meaningful conference for youth in our area. It is a joy to be part of this event and a lot of work to coordinate the specifics. I also participate in weekly worship services and social activities or events when available. I am careful to ensure my family pays our tithes and offerings each month, recognizing that everything we have is a gift from God. I am also mindful how I use my time, understanding that I can use it to help others and thus serve as a handmaid of the Lord.
