Hi I'm Audrey

I'm a spunky redhead, exercise enthusiast, outdoor lover, former teacher, and current stay at home mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I had a brief stint as a high school English teacher and aerobics instructor after graduating from college, but am now lucky enough to be able to stay at home with my growing family. I always worried that staying at home with my kids might be boring, but have found I am an anything but bored. When the opportunity presents itself I love puddle jumping, cooking exquisite meals from scratch, trail running, reading a good book, or researching ways to make my family more "green."

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and have always been inspired by the faith of my family members. Listening to conversion stories of grandparents and great grandparents always inspired me to discover my own surety of testimony in this faith. My testimony has come gradually and over time, but there's nothing I could be more certain about. Everything about the church's teachings only encourages a person to become better and reach their full potential as they draw nearer to the Savior; that truth has always spoken to me. My faith gives me daily strength to face anything that life might throw at me. Even when it's just a feeling of loving reassurance in the middle of the night when I'm soothing a crying child. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints helps me put my life into perspective and realize what is truly important.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I've had the opportunity to work and serve in several different capacities. I've held positions varying from chorister to activities planner and currently work with young women ages 12 and 13. Every Sunday I teach a lesson about an aspect of the gospel. I also help plan and orchestrate a weekly activity that helps the girls learn to serve, grow closer together, and draw closer to Christ. I also am assigned to visit a few other women in the ward. At least once a month a fellow female church member and I visit these women. We talk about our lives, look for opportunities to provide service, and of course share a spiritual message. It's been a great opportunity to meet wonderful diverse ladies that whether because of age or interests I might not have thought to get to know.
