Hi I'm Heather

I am a college graduate. I met my husband online. I enjoy photography. I am a sister, daughter, and mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a 2009 college graduate. I volunteer with Special Olympics. I grew up in small town in Oregon. I am the oldest of 4 children. I love music and play the piano. I enjoy photography. I met my husband online. My favorite place is the Oregon Coast. I love interior design. My favorite movie is "You've Got Mail". I am a wife, sister, daughter, friend, and Mother.  

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born into a family that practiced the Mormon religion, but that is not why I am a Mormon. Although I attended church services all through my youth, I had to gain a testimony of the gospel for myself. When I was a teenager I decided that I wanted to know for myself if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was actually Christ's church restored to the Earth. So, I asked God. I prayed, searched the scriptures, the Bible and Book of Mormon, and pondered all that I knew for days before I received my answer in prayer that this is Christ's church restored once again to the Earth. Because of the answer that I received to my prayers and earnest seaching, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith through my words and deeds every day of my life as I keep the Commandments and strive to grow closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. I also attend church services, in my community congregation, every Sunday for our 3 hour meeting block. In addition, I serve in a leadership position in the church helping to plan weekly activities for the "Young Single Adults", young adults between the ages of 18-30, living in our community.
