Hi I'm Angela

I'm a mom. I'm a military wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of an 18 month old boy. He is very rambunctious and I am grateful every day I ran cross country in college since I am constantly chasing him. We spend our days building with legos, reading books, going to the park, and playing in the dirt outside. In moments when he is busy playing solo, I am able to catch up on cleaning, and during blessed nap times I can occasionally relax and read a good book. My husband joined the U.S. Air Force 6 months ago, so our once fairly routine life has since been turned inside out. For the next year he will be doing intensive training, so he is gone frequently. Days can be long and nights lonely when he is absent from our home, but I am proud of him and what he is doing. This is my life. Filled everyday with my son, my husband, and my God. I wouldn't trade it for the world.

Why I am a Mormon

In a world where a happy family is quickly becoming obselete, I hold fast to the gospel principles that help our family survive. I know that our marriage would not last long without the Lord helping us to repent, forgive, and teaching us how to grow daily in our love for each other. I am a mormon because I see every day the impact my decision to live (or not live) the way Christ would have me live effects my life, my son, and my marriage. I know that no matter what trials come my way the Lord will stregthen me and help me be able to bear the burdens I am forced to bear. This knowledge is especially comforting with the uncertainty of my husband always coming home safe. I know that no matter what happens, as long as we live righteously, my husband and I, and our children, are sealed as an enteral family. I am a mormon because I could not get through this life any other way.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at home by teaching my son about Jesus, praying, and other simple truths. Every night before he goes to bed we have time as a family to read a scripture (perhaps we'll be able to read more as my son's attention span grows) sing a hymn, and pray. Though he doesn't always respond positively to this time, I know if we are consistent he will learn to love the Lord as my husband and I do. In addition, through the women's organization in my church, I am assigned 4 or 5 sisters to visit, befriend, and watch over. I, and a partner, are resposible for making sure any needs she has are met. I have been blessed so many times as a result of this practice. Both as a reciver and a giver. In the past I have been a teacher for adults as well as children, served as a piano player in the children's singing group, sung in my curch choir, and been in charge of organizing children activiites. I know that wherever and however the Lord wants me to serve, if I do it the best I can, I will learn and grow from the experience.
