Hi I'm Andrea

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter to two wonderful, loving parents and a sister to seven siblings. I am also blessed as a wife and a mother to two little girls.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I was born and raised in the church, I have always known it is true. It is something that has always felt right and has given me a sense of direction and peace. I have always felt at home in the church. However, it wasn't until I experienced health problems as a teenager that I came to know how real our Savior's love is. I felt his love for me individually and knew that he was more aware of me than I had ever realized. I have a very real testimony of prayer and know it is the reason I was able to feel closer to my Savior at that time and everyday since. I am a member of the church because I know it to be the complete path that will lead us back to our Savior and Heavenly Father. I feel more peace and purpose when I am following the council of the prophets and doing what I believe would please my Savior. Living in the world can be very difficult and confuse who you are and what you stand for. There are so many ways to feel lost but I know that living the Gospel to be the only true way to find peace and harmony in life. I would feel so lost as a mother and wife if I did not have the Gospel, the Spirit and the example of the Savior. I know that my Savior lives and that He atoned for our sins so that we can find true eternal happiness. I am so grateful to know that I can be with my family forever and that as long as I am doing everything that I can that I will be helped along the way.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day according to the Gospel and Teachings of Christ. It's not always easy and I'm so far from being perfect but I know it to be the only true and complete course to follow. As a young mother I am doing my best to teach my girls of who they are, Daughters of a Heavenly Father who loves them so much and wants nothing more for them than to return to him and have eternal happiness. Growing up my parents did their best to have regular Family Home Evenings and I have a personal testimony of the blessings that come from gathering together as a family and learning correct teachings and principles. As hard as it may be to keep my little girl's attention I know that they are developing testimonies and a knowledge of how loved and divinely beautiful they are. I have a huge testimony of family prayer and scripture study and the blessings that you receive throughout the day and through your life from doing so. I am not always involved in activities that allow me to share the gospel but I do my best to be an example of my Savior at all times and hope to teach that to my family so that they may be walking examples of truth and happiness.
