Hi I'm Marae Foster

I'm and Air Force wife and them mother of 5 kids 5 and under. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the mother of five kids, five and under. I didn't think that my life would ever be this crazy but the Lord knew other wise. When number five unexpectedly blessed our lives life was crazy. Having twin 18 month old boys an almost three year old and a five year old and then my husband leaving for tech school a month later things got real interesting. I have had many helpers by way of my parents and my in-laws and ward members help me survive without my husband being around all the time. There are day that if all I did was feed the kids and everyone was happy and they were all still alive then that was a good day and I was a good mother. Hobbies that I have well I don't have to many right now with so many small kids running around. I do enjoy reading a good book and exercising. Other than that life is just one day at a time and knowing that I have a Heavenly Father that knew I could handle this makes me feel good.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet and translated the Book of Mormon. I am a Mormon because I know that is true. It make me happy. I was not converted in a day or a month it was gradual process that came from my parents teaching me every day. I knew that my parents knew it was true and then I built upon their testimonies. I am grateful for their examples and all they did for me. I love the gospel and how much it has helped and continues to help me in my life. It makes me so happy to know that I am a Child of God and he does love me and want me to be happy and live with him.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures every day and preparing for my lesson that a teach the youth of my ward. I also live my faith by setting the good example for my kids and teaching them all about who they are. Our favorite primary song right now is "I'm a Child of God". That really clams things down and lets the Holy Ghost enter our lives. Family Home Evening is kind of hard with daddy being gone but we are trying. We do read our scriptures every day as a family and pray together. Which has helped my kids out a lot. I look for opportunities to teach my kids about the gospel in the every day kinds of moments. I know that reading my scriptures everyday has help in so many ways. I'm more patients with my kids and know that I will be blessed with the help that I need for the day because I am taking time to let Heavenly Father give me the instruction that I need for the day.
