Hi I'm Meredith

I grew up in a large military family, I'm now a mom, a modest and thrifty! fashion blogger, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved thrift shopping (and with one growing kid and a hubby in law school, saving a dollar is kind of a big deal over here!). So I began a fashion blog to show others what I'm doing to make my money stretch in the clothes department. In this venue, the topics of motherhood, modesty, and Mormonism often come up. And I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm was raised LDS. I am currently still an active member of the Church because I know it's true. I love knowing every day that I can be with my family forever. Heavenly Father sent our son to this family and because my husband and I were married in the temple, and continue to keep our covenants, we can be a family forever. As a mom, that knowledge is priceless.

How I live my faith

Lucky lucky me, I get to teach the adults all about how to be better spouses and parents! During our Sunday School hour of church I'm in charge of teaching a marriage and family class. When I got this particular calling I thought, "Me? No way! What do I know about that? I'm a new wife and a new mom and I know nothing." But as the weeks go on, I've learned so much and I'm amazed at how much I'm taking away from the class members themselves. Hearing others experiences is so rewarding and I now know that this is the calling I needed right at this time in my life.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes! I could leave it at that but I'd love to add, we have a very real relationship with our Savior. We understand fully that He is God's son and also our older brother. We close our prayers in His name, include His name in the very title of the Church, and begin learning of Him at a very young age. We love the Savior Jesus Christ, we know that he lived, died and was resurrected for us. And we understand that He still lives today. Show more Show less
