Hi I'm Audrey

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 40 year old single woman who works and enjoys life in the Salt Lake City area. I work for the Juvenile Court as a Probation officer and love what I do. I so enjoy the kids I work with and seeing the progress they make as they become positive contributing members of society. I am active in my church callings and work at the Jordan River Temple as well, which is such a great experience. I come from a family of 6 kids, being the second oldest. Some of my siblings are active and others have chosen other paths. I served a mission in Portugal and was fortunate enough to spend several months in Cabo Verde, West Africa as well. I love to travel, love history, all sorts of movies and am an avid reader. I don't live by family but have lots of good friends to keep me grounded. I spend time with family as much as I am able and they are so much fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have a family histoy of generations of members. I've felt my testimony strongly since I was a child. I remember vividly the interview I had with my Bishop when I was turning 8 and getting ready to be baptised. It was the first time I can remember feeling the spirit so strongly that I couldn't stop smiling and I knew I had made the right choice. Throughout my teenage years I remained active and was strengthened by good friends both in and out of the church. As a missionarry I was tested in many ways and was able to have some amazing experiences. I know in my heart that the things I feel and have experienced are true and real to me. Being single all of my adult life in a family oriented society is a continuing challenge as well. I have chosen to hold fast to my faith and the Lord has lead me through any dark times I have had. I am truely blessed.

How I live my faith

One of the things I love about the church is the opportunity, even expectation, of service. I currently work with the women of my congregation and love every chance I have to get to know them and serve them in any way they need. I have also taught various classes, which is always fun and helps my knowledge of the gospel grow. I have friend that are members as well as those that are not. I value all of them dearly. My faith is evident in the fact that I choose not to drink and to keep the moral standards set as guidelines by the church. Though to some these may seem like restrictions, they bring me freedom and peace of mind that cannot be gained otherwise. I try my best to live my faith and to be a kind and caring member of my community.
