Hi I'm Stephanie

I am a wife, a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family moved around a bit while I was growing up but I mostly call the South my home. I love the South; the cities, the food, but mostly the people. I am the middle of five children; it sounds like a lot but I wouldn't trade any of my siblings. I met my Husband while we were both in school. We have been married for five years and we have one daughter with another little girl on the way. I love to read books, make deserts, and spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the LDS faith. I was taught from my childhood about faith, repentance, and Jesus Christ. My testimony grew slowly and over years; I have read the Book of Mormon many times both by my self and with my family and every time I have read it I feel the spirit of the Holy Ghost testify to me that the words that I read are true. I have felt my Heavenly Father's love for me and I know he blesses me as I have tried to live my life in a way that he would want. I know that every time I have had a question about the meaning and purpose of life I have always been able to turn to the scriptures, and prayer and found answers to my questions. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints brings me comfort and peace in a world that can be anything but comforting and peaceful. I have direction and purpose.

How I live my faith

I think that the most important thing that I do is teach my daughter that she is a child of God and that he knows and loves her. Weekly our family sits down together to hold a Family Home Evening. We say a prayer, sing songs, and have a short lesson about gospel topics. My husband and I want our home to be a home filled with faith and love. I also serve in my local congregation by visiting specific women within the congregation each month and finding out how they are doing; both physically and spiritually. It is an opportunity for me to assist in the needs of these women.
