Hi I'm Candice

I'm a wife and new mother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Virginia and moved to Utah in 2004. I graduated from BYU in 2008 with a degree in Child Development. I have been married to my best friend for over 3 years and we are new parents to an adorable baby girl. We moved to the midwest a year ago and are loving our opportunities here. I love to travel, make crafty things, take pictures, and decorate. I love being a mom!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of the LDS church. As I got older and began reading the scriptures for myself and recognizing personal spiritual experiences, I gained a real testimony that the church is true. I am a Mormon because I want to be. I am a Mormon because my life is more joyful when I am living the teachings of the church and following the counsel of a living prophet. Doing so brings me closer to my Savior and to my loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity of overseeing the needs and welfare of all of the women 18+ that attend church with me. I help those in need to receive food and other necessary supplies during hard times. I visit the women in my neighborhood. I attend church for 3 hours each week and sometimes more often for other meetings. I pray morning and night alone, and with my husband. We have personal and couple scripture study daily. We make it a goal to attend the temple once each month. I dress modestly and try to treat others with kindness!
