Hi I'm Tracey

I grew up in the U.S. I worked in the computer industry for many years. I'm a wife & mother. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 8 children, four of whom are still at home. My husband and I have been married for 21 years. I love being a wife and mother. I graduated from college with degrees in English and Journalism. I love to travel, read, write, watch moves, play games and listen to music. I love animals and wildlife. I would love to see great whales, pandas, gorillas or other wild things in their own habitat. I have been to many places in the world including Hawaii, Ontario, England, France, Germany, Copenhagen, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, most of the United States, and Mexico. One day I would love to visit New Zealand and Australia.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church, yet I had to find out that what I was raised to believe is true. I studied and prayed and received my own answer that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ upon the earth. I have received great joy and happiness from my membership in this church and have come to love the Lord through following the principles of the gospel. I know this church has the Lord's priesthood power that was restored to Joseph Smith by John The Baptist and Peter, James and John who were the early apostles of the Lord. I know that through this priesthood power we can receive the eternal blessings of being sealed to our families forever and returning to live with Heavenly Father in His kingdom.

How I live my faith

Each day we read the scriptures and have family prayer as a family. On Monday night we spend time together as a family learning the gospel, doing service or having fun together. I serve in the women's organization at church. I also serve in the scouting program as the advancement leader for the young men.
