Hi I'm Whitney

I'm a friend, daughter, sister, lifelong learner, and teacher of children. I love to smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a second grade teacher and I absolutely love it! Little children have always had a way of making me smile and I am so glad that I get to work with them and see them fulfill their potential.I am trying to be a lifelong learner and am lucky that my second graders teach me so many new things everyday! I also love to be with my family. I am the third of five children and we have tons of fun when we get together. My father is planning a family ragnar (we will see if this happens) =) I am lucky enough to have 4 adorable nieces and nephews who think their aunt is the best person in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the Gospel of Jesus Christ has and continues to bring me the greatest happiness I have ever felt. I know that I am a precious child of God and that He is aware of me and all of His children. I know that our Heavenly Father wants only the best for us and has given us His Son, Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for this Gift, because through Jesus Christ's infinite sacrifice we can find true and everlasting happiness.

How I live my faith

Daily prayer and scripture study are a huge part of living my faith. As I am able to communicate with my Heavenly Father through prayer, I can receive comfort, council, warnings, and guidance. I often receive these answers through the scriptures. The Book of Mormon and The Bible are words of ancient prophets and apostles written for us. Heavenly Father often answers our prayers as we study the scriptures. Another way of living my faith occurs through creating friendships with other women who live nearby. At least monthly, another woman and I visit other women near us. We get to know one another, we share uplifting messages, and are there to help in anyway the women might need. I am so grateful for service, for being able to serve others and to receive help in return from caring individuals. Serving others fills me up completely with joy, that it makes me want to serve again just to have that happy feeling. I know that our Savior Jesus Christ is a perfect example of service and loving all those around Him. I want to be as He is and serve everyone so completely and so lovingly as He did.

What is the Relief Society?

The Relief Society is a women's organization with the purpose to build faith in Jesus Christ, strengthen families, and help those in need. Each week women meet together to learn the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to apply His teachings in their personal lives. It provides relief to those who are sick or physically hurt, as well as to those who are suffering from so many other burdens. The Relief Society is an incredible way to know that you are not alone and that there are so many people who want to serve. I am grateful to be a part of this organization of sisterhood. I am grateful to for the friends that I have made as we serve next to each other. It is amazing to feel the love of God through the angelic women He has sent to bless the lives of others.
