Hi I'm Mistie

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in AZ. I am number 6 of 7 children as part of an awesome loving family. I loved to dance growing up, my favorite was tap! We went on lots of trips performing and competing, including places like Florida, New York City, Las Vegas, Hawaii, and a Caribbean cruise! I also loved to be with my family and friends doing pretty much anything but especially wake boarding, reading, sleeping, going to movies, swimming, and just having fun. I graduated from high school, went to a community college for a year and then went off to school in Idaho. My favorite things about the school was the awesome atmosphere, the amazing changing seasons, living on my own, taking wally ball for three semesters along with all the great classes I took there, hanging out with friends, etc. I left Idaho after 5 years with a Bachelor's in Child Development, my awesome husband, and 2 daughters. We have since moved to AZ where my husband is a rocket scientist and I am a stay at home mom. We now added our son to our family and have another son arriving soon. We love doing anything and everything together as a family. Life is beautiful!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up a Mormon. My parents and grandparents grew up Mormon. When I turned 8, I made the choice to be baptized. When I was 17, I gained my own testimony that everything I had been taught was true. I can't imagine my life without His gospel in my life. Life is hard enough, we shouldn't have to go through it without the love of our Savior. I am so thankful for how I was raised and hope to raise my children the same way. There is such peace in life that comes through going to church each week and trying my best to keep the commandments.

How I live my faith

Right now I teach the 14 year-olds from the New Testament each Sunday. I find great strength from studying the scriptures. There are so many lessons to be learned from the Book of Mormon and the Bible. I know the Scriptures are true.
