Hi I'm Debra

I'm a convert to the church and I love being a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and have lived here most of my life. I work in the real estate industry and in my spare time I enjoy Phoenix Suns basketball, camping, hiking, and my new favorite hobby, repelling. I'm the middle of seven children, three boys and four girls. I was not born into the church. My mother was brought up devout Catholic and my father had no religious upbringing. When I was a child my family was introduced to the church by our neighbors. I was baptized in my early teens but did not remain active. For many years I struggled with the day to day challenges of this life. Then, thanks to an amazing brother and also a dear sweet friend, I began attending church again. It is by far the best decision I have ever made and my life has been blessed tremendously because of it.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m a Mormon because that’s what brings happiness and light into my life. For years I felt incomplete. There was something missing in my life that couldn’t be filled with worldly things. When I found the church again my whole world became brighter. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has changed my life, it has taught me who I am and why I am here. I know I have a Heavenly Father that loves me. I know that His son, Jesus Christ, is my savior and redeemer. It is through my relationships with them that I find peace amid the trials of this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others in my church and in my community. Having a love for children but not being a mother myself, some of my greatest blessings have come from working with the children and youth in the church. I love teaching them as they in turn teach me. I also live my faith by trying to be the best person I can be, to be more like our Savior and to always treat others with kindness and respect.
