Hi I'm Renee

I'm a wife, a mother and a daughter of God. I have hopes, a family, and love for my Savior. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a just an average girl from Idaho. I have two beautiful daughters, an amazing husband, good friends and neighbors and a great job. I grew up with Mormon roots but my parents weren't active in the church. As a small child I would attend church with friends or neighbors and was baptized when I was thirteen but then fell away from the church. It wasn't until I was an adult with a family of my own that I was re-introduced to the gospel and gained a true testimony of our Savior and His gospel. I had a good friend who was LDS and she encouraged me to do what I knew to be right and I took my family back to church. My husband was not a member and it was an amazing experience to meet with the missionaries who taught us both the gospel essentials. After my husband was baptized we quickly set a date to attend the temple so that we could partake of all of the blessings that our Father has in store for us. We were sealed together for time and all eternity. We cherish the eternal nature of our family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am simply a Mormon because the gospel helps me in ways that I'm sure I cannot possibly comprehend. The gospel brings indescribable peace in this world of chaos. Throughout all of the turmoil and resistance of this world the gospel has taught me who I am, where I came from, what my purpose on this earth is, and most importantly, where I am going! I love that I can turn to my Father in Heaven in prayer and receive guidance and counsel to help me in my daily life.

How I live my faith

The gospel is not hard to live if you have a testimony of the Savior. He makes all things possible. I love the organization of the church. One of the things that really drew me to the church was wealth of information that helps to unite every Latter Day Saint in purpose. The scriptures, church magazines, website and music are amazing and help in every facet of life. I think it's incredible that what I'm learning on Sunday is the same in Idaho as it is in every meetinghouse all over the world. I believe that's because our Father in Heaven loves each one of us and his message is the same! He loves us and He wants us to return to Him.
