Hi I'm Colleen

I'm from Idaho, I'm a Mom, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah but moved to Idaho 19 years ago. I am the mother of four children, two boys and two girls. I met my husband at a high school "seminary computer date". It went from "first date" to marriage in just a few short years. The rest is history! For hobbies, I love exercising each morning, reading books that expand my knowledge, trying a new recipe and then sharing it with my neighbors. I love spending time with my family. They are my best friends! For all those who know me best, a little chocolate mixed in throughout the week is an added bonus! 

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon and consider myself truly blessed to have been raised in a family where we attended church each Sunday, prayed daily and read from the scriptures. We had regular Family Home Evening on Monday night where we spent time together as a family sharing talents, watching old family movies, playing games, and learning more about gospel principles.

How I live my faith

I am a full-time mom and have been so blessed with the opportunity to stay home and raise my four children. Each month, I volunteer at the school helping in the classroom. I also serve as the official "birthday mom" surprising each of the children at school with a special birthday treat. I am currently working with the young women of our church ages 14 to 16 years old. I help teach our Sunday lessons and have weekly activities every Wednesday. Some of our favorite activites are serving dinner at the homeless shelter and VA hospital. 

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

From a very young age, I believed that a loving Heavenly Father was there to hear and answer my prayers. I have come to know that I can always pray to our Heavenly Father wherever I may be and no matter what time of day it is. Our Father in Heaven is there and He loves each of us so much.     Show more Show less
