Hi I'm Bonnie

I completed a Master's Degree in Cello Performance and taught kindergarden for 3 years. I'm married with a baby boy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm beginning to think I'm a cat, except my lives don't end in death. Instead they add to each other. My first life is a musician. During this time I earned a Master's Degree in Cello Performance from the University of Utah. (My Bachelor's is from Arizona State University). This also included starting to teach cello privately (out of my home and a studio in Chandler and Tempe), something that continues to this day. Somewhere in the mix of this I began selling Mary Kay. I haven't decided whether or not this constitutes a new life or not. Life number 2 came about as I did a post-bach and received my teaching certificate in Elementary Education while working at the University of Utah Institute of Religion in Salt Lake City, Utah. I then moved back to Arizona and taught kindergarten for three years full time in two different districts. During life number 2, my third life crept up on me and I got married to my wonderful husband who puts up with me and my many lives. So life #3 is a wife. My fourth life developed after I stopped teaching, a writer. I have completed several young adult novels and am working on getting published, a long process. I also love to read and review books on my blog. www.bonnieharris.blogspot.com Life #5 is my sweet, little boy whom I love to watch learn and grow. Life sure is a journey and I'm hoping that once I get to 9 lives that doesn't mean I'm dead! We'll have to see what life brings.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ brings meaning, direction, and purpose to my life. It brings peace and knowledge when I haven't been able to find that in the world. As up and down as life is, the gospel is the one consent I have. It is the crutch I depend on during all the hard times. I would be truly lost without it.

How I live my faith

I strive to live as Christ did, meaning I look for those in need and do my best to help. I may not be able to solve issues, but I know the power of a smile and knowing someone is thinking of me. My favorite thing to do is leave a note that says "Thinking of You." Sometimes there is a goodie and sometimes there isn't, but it's just nice to know that someone has noticed you. I may not be moving mountains, but with one pebble at a time, I might be able to.
