Hi I'm Noelle

I grew up in Southern California and I joined the church when I was 15. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Huntington Beach California and had my first contact with the church as a High School freshman. I was baptized when I was 15, due in large part to a good friend who was an amazing example to me. My husband and I were married in the LA Temple on Jan 18th 1986. In 1990 our first daughter was born and our second daughter was born in 1994. In 1995 my husband was promoted within his company and our family moved to the great Northwest. We settled in Washington loved it and have been here ever since! Our twins were born in 1998, then our family was complete. I love spending time with my kids and I am fortunate to be able to work with the youth in the church.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young teenager I was introduce to the Gospel by a good friend. The kids she spent time with were very different from the friends that I had at the time. They had fun together without the drinking and drug use that I was seeing my others friends doing. I was impressed that these kids had very high standards and weren't afraid to stand up for them. To this day I am always still so impressed with the youth of our church. The standards of our society seem to constantly be lowered but the standard's of our church remain the same. I am continually impressed with how are youth are able to resist the temptations of our day. I know that our Heavenly father loves each of us and is constantly there to help us resist all of the temptations put before us. I feel blessed to have my Heavenly Father's love and guidance to help me a better person.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a Young Women's President in our ward. This enables me to be working with the youth, which is my favorite thing to do!! We spend time weekly having fun or doing service. I feel a great strength in the youth and I always feel uplifted when spending time with them.
