Hi I'm Stef

I'm an elementary teacher, I'm an aunt, I love music and I love my family and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi! I'm Stefanie. Since I can remember my family called me Stef, so thats what I like to be called. I work as an elementary school teacher in the town where I grow up. I love being a teacher, be arrounded by kids who are willing to learn. I also like my work because it gives me time to be with my family in the afternoons and during school breaks. Because I'm not yet married, I can do fun things with my nieces and nephews. I love being an aunt. Music is also a big part of my life. I like playing the piano and just started playing the violin. That is a challenge I like to accomplish. Singing in a choir with other young people from our church gives me joy.  

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. You could say I'm a Mormon because my parents and grandparents are. But thats not the only reason. I can't imagine how I would live my life without the gospel of Jesus Christ. When we sing in the choir of Christ, I always feel such a strong feeling, that I know He lives. He's my brother, my redeemer, my friend. He knows me and I can turn to Him in prayer wherever I am and whatever I do. That gives me a feeling of peace and love. By having that knowledge its easier for me to live my life. Not that life is always easy, but knowing of the atonement of Jesus Christ, that He went through all trails and challenges I'm going through, is a peaceful feeling. 

How I live my faith

In my home branch I teach the young women. We have five wonderful girls and its so much fun to be with them and learn with them. I also taught the children from ages 3 to 12 for several years. During that time I decided to be a teacher. The church callings helped me to learn about the gospel, but also to find the right profession for me. As I go to visit other women from my branch, I always return home with a good feeling. I like to learn from other women, how they lived their lifes, how they went through hard times and how they developed specific skills like making homemade marmelade.
