Hi I'm Nancy

I teach piano to the young and young at heart. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a technical writer and private music teacher. I have college degrees in music education and English (creative writing). I enjoy reading, performing, going to live theater, hiking, traveling, and watching thunder and lighting storms. I am happily married to a wonderful man. We have a crazy dog we love most of the time.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born into a family very active in the LDS religion, I still had to find out for myself what I believed and why. I am a Mormon because I have found, through careful study and prayer, that this is truly God's church. I also discovered He loves us and wants us to be happy and to return to Him. The truth may not be popular or easy to follow, but it will be simple and straight forward. Pray, read the scriptures, love God, love others. Simple? Yes. Easy? Not always. Will doing these things make us happy? Yes. "...Men are that they might have joy." (2 Nephi 2:25) Belonging to God's church brings me joy. It brings me peace, and it has enriched my life in ways that I can't fully express. I am thankful for parents who love the Lord and live the Gospel. I am thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who wants me to be happy and have all that He has. I am especially grateful to a loving Savior who willingly sacrificed His life so that I might live again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ every day. I am far from perfect, but I know that if I turn to Him, He will help me. I know that He and Heavenly Father want me to succeed.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Relationships are central to the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are only two things we will take with us when we leave this life: who we are at our very core (the heart of our matter) and the relationships we have cultivated while here. God is our Heavenly Father. To me, that means our relationship with Him is similar to our family units here on earth. As we develop and nurture our families here on earth, it teaches us to love unconditionally as Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love us. Show more Show less
