Hi I'm Randa

I'm a Registered Nurse, I'm a Proud Wife & Mother! You'll rarely find me frowning, I love to LAUGH! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that without His atoning sacrifice that allows me to repent, that my family would not be able to be together forever. My family is the most important part of my life & I feel so blessed to have such a beautiful family! I am a Wife to the most wonderful Husband, I am the Mother of 3 fabulous children, I am a Registered Nurse and love the flexibility it gives me to have a career 1 day a week and still be able to raise my family and be a full-time Mom!! I love baking & having dance parties with my kids! I love taking pictures as a way to document our families adventures! I love teaching my kids & watching them learn and catch on to new ideas & concepts & I love to read a good children's book! To my kiddos of course! I love spending time with my family! We enjoy many activities together including swinging at the park (this is a favorite!), bike riding, swimming, bowling & attending sporting events! College football is our family favorite! We love the fun atmosphere and enjoy the time together! I am a daughter, sister, cousin, niece and friend & through the blessing of a large group of family and friends being able to enjoy season football tickets together I'm able to spend time strengthening all of these relationships! I know that I have Father in Heaven who loves me and knows who I am and I am so grateful to have this knowledge and to be Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aka a MORMON!

Why I am a Mormon

Living the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy! I am a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor & person because I know my Savior and I know that he Atoned for my sins and the sins of ALL of Gods children, making it possible for each of us to return to live with Him someday! Knowing that I am a Daughter of God, that He Loves Me & that I can return to live with Him someday is the knowledge that gives me peace & keeps me grounded in this crazy world!

How I live my faith

SERVICE! I love to serve! I am a Homemaker, I take care of my Husband and Children, making our Home a sacred place where they are safe, comfortable & well taken care of. I serve in the Young Women's organization in our ward and I love teaching, planning & carrying out weekly activities for these great young women! I visit other women each month checking in to see how they & their families are doing & teach them gospel principles. I serve in the parent comittee at my daughter's school & have enjoyed working with the other parents in organizing & leading activites for our kids school!

What is the difference between attending church and the temple?

Anyone can attend church. Church is where we learn the gospel principles & renew our covenants from baptism through partaking of the Sacrament. To attend the temple you must be a worthy member of the church. In the Temple we make additional covenants or promises with the Lord and serve by acting as proxy's to give the opprotunity for those same covenants to all of God's children. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Faith is believing in something even when you cannot see it. I have faith in God which means that I trust Him enough to live my life in a way that would be pleasing to Him. I cannot see God, but I know that He is there through my faith so I pray to Him and trust that He will answer my prayers. I obey God's commandments and try every day to choose the right because I have faith in Him and want to be like Him. Show more Show less
