Hi I'm Claire

I'm a Mormon. I'm a hairdresser and the only mormon in my salon. I LOVE to country line dance. I love my family.

About Me

My name is Claire. I have lived in Rancho Santa Margarita most of my life. I have been married since August 2003 to my wonderful loving husband, Sterling. We have one son, Jaxson, and looking forward to expanding our eternal family. I am a hairdresser. I have been doing hair since 2002. I work in San Juan Capistrano in the historic downtown. I love being creative with hair and I love making people look and feel beautiful. I consider myself a "daymaker". I make people's day everyday! Don't you have a better day when your hair looks awesome? I enjoy going to the movies, line dancing, baking, watching tv, spending time with my extended family, going to Disneyland, online shopping and planning parties!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my whole life, since 1982. I was adopted through LDS social services at a very young age and am so thankful for my young biological mother and father for making one of the most difficult decisions of their lives. Their decision has blessed me in more ways then I can ever imagine. I do not want to think about how my life would be if I wasn't a member of the only true church. My parents are amazing and have been awesome examples of how to live lives parallel to the gospel. I was baptized when I was 8 and remember feeling very special. I was married in the temple and felt like a princess marrying my prince charming in the most beautiful place in the world, the San Diego Temple. For me following all of the guidelines laid out my the church are common sense. Don't have sex before you are married because you could get a STD or a baby out of wedlock or who knows what else. Don't drink alcohol or smoke tobacco because they are harmful, addicting and dangerous. Again to me it's all common sense. The church does a lot of service and I love to serve others. One small act of service I enjoy is giving the female missionaries who are serving in my area free haircuts. They do so much it's the least I can do.

How I live my faith

I love my faith my going to church for all 3 hours on Sundays. I live my faith by paying 10% of our income to the church, it's called tithing. I live my faith by serving as a leader in the youth program. I work closely with the girls 18 years of age and help them navigate though the transition from being a teenager to become a women in the church. I also help promote church service activities through social media. Events like Mormon Helping Hands, blood drives and and event we have locally called Follow the Star, a living nativity.
