Hi I'm Tracy

I'm a wife, a mom, a bookkeeper, a wannabe quilter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town where my family didn't attended church. I was enrolled in a community college for (2) years focusing on accounting and from there worked at a bank and got married to a wonderful man who was brought up LDS his entire life. We have (2) wonderful kids, one is married and one is on his way to BYU before going on a mission. One of the biggest blessings was that while the children were young I was able to start my own bookkeeping business and work from home while the kids were growing up. I wouldn't trade that time that I shared with the kids for anything. That's me - I love to be organized, I love music and I especially love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Looking back at my time before being a Mormon, I can see that I was drifting - no real direction - no real purpose. Being a member of the LDS church provides me with direction and purpose. I focus on what is truely important, what the Lord wants me to do, and not what the world would have me do. I know that Heavenly Father loves us and I know that he knows each one of us individually and what our needs and struggles are. I know that we are never alone.

How I live my faith

In my ward I have the privilege of conducting our ward choir. The members are so wonderful for sharing their time and talents and it is so uplifting for us all to gather weekly at my house to practice and feel the love of Christ through the music. Each person is so dear to me for the example that they set and for the faith that they exude. Also, each month I go and visit a few of the ladies in our ward with a partner. Recently one of the women that we visited, she was 93, passed away and her extended family had ask my partner to spread her ashes at a local creek. When she told me about this of course I wanted to help. This was one of the most tender moments of my life. I had originally thought that the 5 mile hike in to the creek would be the act of service for our dear friend, but actually she had done one last act of service for me. Looking back at it I note that our time on earth here is so short and after we leave we here we have nothing left but the service that we have done and the hearts that we have touched. It always seems that Heavenly Father puts us where we need to be and just the time we need to be there - we just need to be aware and in tune with His direction.
