Hi I'm Nanette

I grew up at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a mother, grammie, sister, and currently working registered nurse. I love to read, make baby quilts, and make yeast breads when I am not hiking, riding a bike, or helping a friend.

Why I am a Mormon

Believing in something greater than myself has always been imbedded in me from birth. I went to the LDS church from the time I was small and learned for myself with the help of great teachers and friends what we believed and why. As a teenager, I challenged those beliefs by trying out the principles I had been taught. They worked. Praying about the Book of Mormon's validity was important to me. When I was 19, I knew that all that I had been taught was correct. With a course set and truth known, my life is much easier as I know that my choices will affect me and others for good or bad. I get to decide whether or not I am happy. I have seen by working with others in the healthcare field, that those who have long term goals and a belief in God and life after death are generally kinder, gentler and healthier. I get the chance each day to see the Lord's hand in my life and those who surround me. It is with great gratitude that I know my family can be eternal.

How I live my faith

I have many chances to live my religion. I choose when I am working to be thorough and caring for my patients. As a grammie, I get to teach about choices, love, and how to treat people as Jesus did. Daily prayer and scripture reading help me as I go into the world where people can be unkind and selfish. They help me to remember promises that I have made to the Lord to treat others with love unfeigned. Because of what I believe, I choose to dress modestly, listen to uplifting music, and keep my home a place of peace --free from anger.
