Hi I'm Heather

I grew up in Colorado. I'm a Domestic Goddess to my husband and 2 children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Domestic Goddess by nature. Which means I am a wife (to my wonderful husband), a mother (to my beautiful daughter and adorable son), a daughter, a sister, a crafter, a bargain shopper, a scrapbooker, a sewer (not to be confused with seamstress), a house cleaner, a cook, a furniture re-purposer, a HGTV and DIY addict and finally the occasional TV watcher (although I am SOOO not the daytime soap watcher...) and of course a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church. I am a 3rd generation Mormon. However, my husbands family goes way back to the pioneers and early days of the church. When I left home for college, I had experiences and bad influences that led me away for several months. Through wonderful people in my area and ward, I came back to the gospel. The sacred experiences I had and the Spirit I felt, helped lead me to know this was the true gospel of Jesus Christ restored on the Earth. This gospel and it's teachings, have taught me to know I am a beloved daughter of my Heavenly Father who loves me and knows me by name.

How I live my faith

I live my faith daily. The principles I am taught, help me achieve my potential as a young woman, wife, mother and daughter of God. I actively participate in my ward. I currently serve with other woman to plan activities for other women in our ward to attend so we may bond and become better women and disciples of Christ in his church. I attend these activities that are planned for the women, as well as the families in our ward. I have also helped teach the children and the youth in our ward about Christ. Living my faith and keeping the commandments helps me everyday to be happy and find true peace.

What is the Church’s position on abortion?

Abortion is such a touchy issue. It isn't something to be taken lightly either. You are dealing with sacred powers of creating and ending a life. While, we oppose abortion, and are counseled from our leaders to not do it. There are rare cases where they are needed. Examples of these instances are where the pregnancy was the result of rape or incest, or the mother's life is in danger. Even then, we are counseled to speak with our priesthood authorities and pray and seek divine confirmation to help make the best decision for our situation. Show more Show less
