Hi I'm Audra

I'm a stay at home mom and wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 30 years old and I live in Vermont. I grew up in New Mexico. I have one daughter and a son.I was born and raised in the church. Before I became a mother I was a Nanny for 7 years. I loved getting the opportunity to learn about children and become a part of some else's family. Right now I am a stay at home wife and mother. I love sewing, gardening, dancing, singing, baking, cooking, video games, and play with my children. I currently have a concert Scheduled for Dec. 17th at the Joseph Smith Memorial, where I will be singing Christmas Hymns.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. When I was 18 I decided to go away from the Mormon religion for awhile. I did many of the average teenage things and decided, after 2 years of that lifestyle, that I wanted to embrace the Mormon religion again. I was welcomed back with open arms and have not strayed since. I know the Book of Mormon is another testiment of Jesus Christ. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet and that we have a prophet that leads and guides us today. I know that we can pray and seek answers from God for ourselves. It's called personal revelation. I know that I am happier, healthier, and better off with the teachings of this gospel in my life. Gods church is designed to help us be happy and to live with him again someday. He wants us to be happy, just as I want my daughter to be happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith not just on Sunday or twice a year on holidays, but everyday. It's how I live my life. I pray everyday, I ask for help everyday, I attend my meetings on Sunday and help with Youth activities during the week. I read scriptures daily and try my best not only to be a good example of Christ Church, but to also just be a good person to others. I seek out opportunities to uplift and serve others around me.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony is litteraly an open declaration or profession of our faith. Often we say that we "have" a testimony, meaning that the Holy Ghost has spoken to our hearts and minds and told us that something is true and not false. When I say that I have a testimony of Jesus Christ or of the Book of Mormon, that means I have prayed, searched, and pondered for the truth of the information that has been given me. Then the Holy Ghost give me a warm feeling or a feeling of brightness that is hard to describe, but I know then that it is true. It's a feeling that you cannot get from any other source. So we then desire to share these feelings with others and call it our testimony. Show more Show less
