Hi I'm Nancy

I love being a mom and grandmother. Family means everything to me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have three wonderful children (two of whom were adopted) and an adorable grandson. Hiking (or just being outside), doing genealogy research, cross-stitching, quilting, reading and gardening are some of my favorite activities. Being a grandmother is an incredible joy for me; seeing the world through my grandson's eyes is delightful. I have been a substitute teacher for about 9 years and love being surrounded by inquisitive learners, both in the school system and at church. Music has always been a large part of my life; I play the piano and organ.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child, I attended a Methodist church with my family. While I'm grateful for my Christian upbringing, it wasn't until I began to pay attention to and study the gospel as taught by the Mormon church that I really began to understand the Savior -- His purpose, life, teachings and atonement. Once I began to understand the restored gospel, all the puzzle pieces began to fit. Questions I had from my childhood were answered. Gospel principles I'd been taught made more sense within the framework of the restored gospel. I'm also grateful for the additional insights into the life of the Savior that can be found in the Book of Mormon. It's comforting to know that God continues to speak to His children, both through prophets and through personal revelation. How grateful I am, too, for temples and the doctrine of eternal families. It's logical to me that families are meant to be together forever and that marriage is not supposed to end at death. What a blessing it is to be a member of the Church. This truly is a gospel of peace.

How I live my faith

I've had the opportunity to serve many different age groups at Church and in my community. Most recently, I worked with the young children of our church congregation teaching Sunday lessons and coordinating the program at our church for children ages 3-12. I've also had opportunities to help out at/coordinate church girls camp for teenage girls as well as teach adults. I love sharing my feelings about the Savior with any age group! And I'm grateful that the gospel is simple enough for children to understand the basics but deep enough that even adults are constantly learning nuances of gospel living.
