Hi I'm Torie

I'm a recent convert. I grew up in Nebraska. My husband is also a recent convert....we've never been happier.

About Me

I'm a second grade teacher who loves kids. My hobbies are reading, spending time with close friends/family, and exercising. Someday I would love to have children and be a stay-at-home-mom. This isn't quite possible yet...my husband and I are just out of college. We love living in Omaha, and would like to teach abroad someday in Europe, and further down the line serve a mission in Africa. I have a passion for cooking/baking, and yes cleaning.

Why I am a Mormon

We recently joined the church in December 2010. There has always been a longing and a need to find "the one church". I've been to many churches, but there was always something missing. I've studied the bible since I was 13 (now 23), and I couldn't make sense of it all. I had so many unanswered questions that nobody could answer. That is until I was given a Book of Mormon. It did and still continues to fill in all those gaps and unanswered questions. I come from a rough background, and look back I know Heavenly Father was there through it all. I prayed one night while living away from husband due to schooling, and I got this feeling that this is right, this is true, and this is what Heavenly Father has planned for me. My conversion (and my husband's) story is quite long, but I'm willing to share it with anyone. After searching for so long, I finally know I'm home. This is where I'm supposed to be.

How I live my faith

I am part of the leadership for the women's group. This opportunity or calling was given to me after I was a member for only 2 months. It's been such a blessing to serve my fellow brothers and sisters. I live my faith everyday. It's not always easy, and I never did understand what the phrase "the straight and narrow path" meant until I found His church. Because I live my faith, am obedient, and keep my promises with God, there have been blessing beyond measure and count. I can't imagine my life and my marriage without Jesus Christ's church, without God. It would be such a lonely, sad, and depressing life. I have never felt this much pure and utter joy consistently. Yes you have good days and bad days, but because I know the truth the bad days aren't so bad and the good days are great. I am so thankful--to God be the glory.
