Hi I'm Whitney

I grew up on a farm/ranch, I recently became a dental hygienist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love summer, flowers, reading, playing guitar and piano, and hiking. I love being with children, singing and almost anything outdoors. In the summerof 2010 I married my best friend in the temple, and it was the best decision of my life. We are now expecting a little girl to be born in June, and we are so excited to become parents.

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a mormon because when I was in high school I wanted to know for myself if God was real and if He listened to my prayers. I had been struggling and felt that life was difficult and lacking real joy. Over 11 months I prayed and read the Book of Mormon and fasted to know if this was God's church and if He loved me. The peace and love that filled my life was the perfect answer to my questions. I felt joy and brightness everywhere and I wanted to share that light with everyone. I still feel that light as I read my scriptures and pray to know who I can help and how I can draw nearer to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. He guides me daily and brings purpose and love into all aspects of my life.

How I live my faith

 Each week I teach a class of 5 year old children at our church about God and how much He loves them. I love seeing them eager to hear new stories and see new pictures to learn about the gospel. I also visit members in our ward to make sure they are doing alright and take them treats for fun. My husband and I also set aside Monday nights as a time to learn more about the gospel and discuss how we can live more like the Savior Jesus Christ wants us to.
