Hi I'm Debbie

I'm a wife. I'm a mother. I love to be home with my family. I'm funny, even hilarious. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mom, especially as my children get older. I like going to work everyday, even though it takes me away from home. I love to play games, nearly any kind. I do simple scrapbooks because I want to be able to see how life has changed so quickly from day to day. I would love to travel more often. I like learning about other cultures and history. I think I want to be a counselor when I grow up, but I'm still deciding.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up LDS and was pretty happy. When I struggled with life decisions, I didn't try very hard to be good, and I was pretty miserable. I found my answers to my struggles through the scriptures, prayer and loving leaders and teachers. I became converted to the gospel by being committed. My life is still full of struggles and obstacles, but I feel blessed to have help through prayer. My Heavenly Father loves me and I know that I am of great worth. When I help others, I catch a glimpse of His love for all of His children. I still have much to learn and I'm glad that I still have many opportunities to grow and become closer to my Savior. There are special moments when I truly feel that my Father and Savior are happy with the choices I am making in life. My goal is to have more of those moments.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the opportunity to serve in a leadership position. At first, I was very fearful of how I would be viewed. Other women look to me for their example, their model and in some cases the decision maker. I know that with the Lord's help I can help the women in the church find opportunities that will allow them to serve each other, care about each other and grow closer to their Savior. My favorite is when we are working on a project that has taken some time and effort and hear a woman say, "That was fun!", or "That was so wonderful!" It truly makes the time and effort worth it. In my current position, I am in charge of lessons on Sunday, activities once a month, and the on-going organization of "visiting teaching" each month. My favorite part to do is visit with the woman who have just moved in or who need a special visit or just in the mood to talk with friends. It helps me get to know the individual better.
