Hi I'm Vickie

I was born and raised in Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest in my family I have two sisters and a bother. My brother is the youngest and he is the only one who is married. He and his wife have a baby girl that the rest of us love to spoil! Currently I am the office manager at a car dealership. I am the I only female working in the office so my biggest job is keeping the guys in line. I still live in the town where I was raised, just a few miles away from my parents. I built a home a few years ago which was a dream come true. I love being on my own and having a place for everything and the space to have my very own craft room and walk in closet.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has been a member of the church for several generations. So there has never been a time when I was without the Gospel. It has always been a guiding force in my life and my daily choices. I am grateful for the standards and beliefs I have been taught which help me make decisions. I know I can pray to Heavenly Father and He hears and answers my prayers. I always feel good about the teachings in the Gospel and I know if there was ever anything I questioned that I could pray for a better understanding and I would be given that understanding. I am very grateful for the teachings in the Gospel that this life is not all there is, that we will be resurrected and have an eternal life. One of my sisters passed away several years ago, which is one of the hardest challenges I've ever faced. I am so grateful for the blessings my family has because of promises made in the temple that we can be an eternal family. Our life on this earth together does not have to end with death. I know someday we will once again be together as a whole family making new memories and laughing and joking over old memories. Facing the death of a loved one without this knowledge would be unbearable. I am so thankful to know this life is not the end, we can enjoy our family relationships forever.

How I live my faith

I am currently working in the youth program in my ward for the girls 12-18. I work with the girls on their Personal Progress, a program that encourages them to set goals that will stregthen them in Gospel standards, making those standards part of their daily life, and drawing them closer to our Heavenly Father. I often pray for ways to help the girls and it is such an exciting feeling when ideas come and I can see the guiding hand of Heavenly Father in my life. It is evidence to me of His love not only for me, but also for each of the girls. I know He loves and cares for each one of us individually.
