Hi I'm Bobbi

I work in our family business and I teach piano lessons. I love to sing, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have always loved music, from Bach to rock. Favorite contemporary composers: Danny Elfman and Hans Zimmer. My fantasy was to sing back up vocals for groups like Boston or Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but instead I have a great time singing in church choir and community productions when time permits. My hobbies are reading, (I have been known to actually "hug" books), dancing, flower arranging, and collecting/sharing comics that make me laugh out loud. I'm a mom and a grandma and I love to speed walk or dance around the house while listening to new music that my adult kids send to my playlist.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a Mormon family, and Mormonism was a tradition. I was taught about Jesus Christ, but it wasn't until I made some foolish choices and suffered the consequences that I finally humbled myself and prayed for a personal witness of our Savior's atonement. Little by little I came to know for myself that the Book of Mormon is simply more revelation testifying that He is the Savior of every person in the world. We can conquer fear, overcome bad things that happen to us, and reach out to others to share our common struggles. With a 16 year old still at home, I am grateful that she has youth leaders and friends of other faiths who are not obsessed with money, appearances, and what popular culture says is beautiful.

How I live my faith

Like most parents, I volunteer in my kids' schools. Teaching kindergarten kids to love singing was my favorite project. We also have some wonderful community nonprofit organizations that my husband and I try to donate time and resources to. At church, I play the organ and type up the bulletin. Most of my friends are members of other churches, and they teach me a lot about the pure love of Christ. As a neighbor, school worker, and music teacher I try to "do the right thing" but it's not always easy to have a good attitude. I get frustrated and discouraged, but I never lose hope for me or for others. I am especially grateful for our Savior's atonement so that when I make mistakes or act thoughtlessly, I can humble myself, ask forgiveness, and try again.
