Hi I'm Heidi

I'm a farm girl from Washington state. I'm a mother, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Gardening, canning, sewing, drafting, writing music, singing, cub scouts, interior design, collecting musical instruments, leading children's singing groups have been my hobbies. I can't say I'm that good at any of them, but it brings me joy to create something useful or beautiful and to help others do the same and see their smiles. I love my family. Most of my time goes into making a good home for them and teaching, playing with, or feeding them. I am thankful for my Savior. I want my life to be my gratitude to him for the freedom and hope He has provided.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because when I came of age to question everything, and experiment with what I had been taught, I found out it really worked! I had been taught that if you pay tithing first, you'll have what you need, so when I didn't have enough food or money, I kept paying tithing and sure enough what I needed would show up somehow. I had been taught that a "soft answer turneth away wrath", so I tried it with my husband and children and it works. I had been taught that if you read the Book of Mormon and ask with a sincere heart to know if it is true, the Lord will let you know through the Holy Ghost. So I tried it and sure enough, I felt an unmistakable feeling of knowing come all though me. I have found safety by following the counsel of the prophets, confidence by keeping the law of chastity, peace by prayer and scripture study, and so it goes.

How I live my faith

We've just moved, so I'm getting to know our neighbors, finding out where I can help in town, generally trying to do what Jesus would want me to do. At church, I've been asked to help in the women's organization. I council with the president about how we can help the women learn about Jesus Christ
