Hi I'm Solana

I'm a financial adviser, an engineer, a stay-at-home mom and wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in the Midwestern US, then got a bachelor's and master's degree in engineering. Then I got married and started a business to help people with disabilities through assistive technology. My husband and I now have 4 young children who I stay at home with, and I'm also a financial adviser part-time. I enjoy investing in stocks and real estate, playing the viola, distance running, singing, swing dancing, cooking, and spending time with my family outdoors--camping, hiking, sports, and remodeling and landscaping.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ makes me who I am. I know that He lives, that He is God's Son, and that He died for me. I love Him with all my heart and I try my best to follow Him. I know that He restored His gospel in the Latter-days through the prophet Joseph Smith, and that we have that gospel today. I know the Book of Mormon is true, along with the Bible. I read both and feel the Lord's power guiding and blessing my life as I read them and follow the teachings of Jesus.

How I live my faith

I lead a group of women that plans activities for women in our local area each month. We have speakers and teachers on various topics to help us in our lives, from scripture study to mental and physical health to personal finances and emergency preparedness. We do recreational activities together like mother/daughter swim parties, celebrate holidays like Christmas, and do humanitarian service projects such as making quilts for foster children or making dolls for childrens hospitals. I also have the opportunity to watch over two different women in the area and strengthen them and their families spiritually and help them with any needs they have in their lives. I try to be a good neighbor and friend, be tolerant of others and show love and service to all those around me. I also try to be a good wife and mother and teach my children about God and His love for them.
