Hi I'm Andrea

I am a stay at home mom with four kids. I love to read, cook, and sew. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Idaho, and after living in a few places around the country (Seattle, Utah, Florida), I came back to settle in Idaho again. I am staying home to raise my four children. They are wild and crazy, but such a blessing. Though it isn't easy, I am thankful to be a mother and influence the lives of these precious children. In my "spare time" I enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy, cooking desserts (anything with chocolate), and crafting. Right now I am participating in a group that crochets, knits and sews for charity. It is such a great feeling to make something that will bless another person's life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and I was raised by my mother by herself. She wasn't always around to make me be good or live the gospel. So the choices I made were my own, and I chose to be faithful and follow Christ. I love the knowledge the gospel gives me and thus the power that I have to know what I am doing is right and what God would have me do. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and through Him my life has meaning and my future is glorious. I have felt His love and I know He knows who I am and the blessings and challenges I need in my life.

How I live my faith

Right now the most important way I am living my faith is being a wife and a mother. I know that is where God needs my focus to be to make our home a special place and to teach my children that there is a God and He knows who they are and they are precious to Him. Outside of my home, I teach Sunday School to the children at church. I also participate in two community organizations: one is making birthday cakes for people in nursing homes and for foster children who would not otherwise receive a birthday cake. The other is sewing, crocheting, and knitting for organizations who pass the items on to those who need them such as baby blankets, booties and hats for NICUs, afghans, slippers and shawls for nursing homes, and hats, mittens and bags for homeless shelters. This organization has members throughout the United States.
