Hi I'm Vanessa

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

About Me

I love being outdoors hiking, biking, walking or just soaking up the sun. I love to bake and cook for my family and friends. I like to knit, cross stitch, read, play clarinet and sing. I have ran a marathon and hiked Mount St. Helens. My husband and family are the most important people in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon household and raised as a Mormon. But that doesn't mean that I still practice just because it's a habit. I have received my own personal witness that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true. This knowledge came gradually as I would read the Book of Mormon and other scriptures, as I would pray and as I would participate in Church activities. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Being part of this Church is a blessing and the Gospel of Jesus Christ makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I visit with lots of different types of women, both from Church and from other locations, older and younger than me, with and without children. I participate in my professional organization as well as a community band and I work full time. In all of these interactions I do my best to be a representative of Jesus Christ. I try to be understanding and to choose the right in every situation.
