Hi I'm Heidi

I grew up in California. I love to study history. I am a mother of six children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be with my family and friends, enjoy the outdoors, and reading inspiring stories. As a child my parents taught me a love for my country and the gospel. We lived in Virginia for 6 years. My father worked at the Pentagon and so we were able to enjoy the many fascinating Historical Sites there. At the age of 10 we moved back to California where my parents were raised. While attending college I met my sweetheart. We are both from large families so we are thrilled to have a large family of our own. I don't have a need to go to work and so I am fortunate to concentrate all my efforts as a mother and wife. It gets busy with 6 children. My husband is a great support. With the two of us working together to bring up these children it makes our family peaceful and happy. We have enjoyed moving around the country meeting many wonderful people and families whom we will never forget. It has been neat for me to see so many historical places in our country and see how the lands and climate and cultures even within our own country differ in their own special way. We are finally settled now and our children are continuing to grow happily with good values, integrity and strength they can give to others. It is because of the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints that we have so much success as a family. And so much happiness. Of course trials arise, but they are dealt with much easier when we have faith in Chirst. He answers our prayers.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church when they were stationed in England with the US Air Force. I was a year old when they moved back to the states. The Gospel of Jesus Christ has always brought me peace and comfort knowing where I came from, why I am here and where I am going. The blessing of modern day Prophets and Apostles is a great blessing to me to help guide me in the many issues we deal with today. I love the values taught. To dress modestly, be honest, no alcohol, or foul language. Having standards and guidelines makes me and my family happy. It helps me be a better parent and guide for my children. I love the Saviors teachings in the scriptures. The Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon it is another testament of Christ, that he lives. The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us to strive to live the life the Savior lived, the best standards, scripture knowledge and love and service to others. That is what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is about. The blessings of the temple and priesthood ordinances are tremendous. They are very important to me. What a huge blessing it is to me and my family. I love this church! :)

How I live my faith

I love to attend church weekly. I wouldn't miss a day! I enjoy serving in callings. What a wonderful thing it is to serve the many youth and adults. Teaching about the Saviors life and how the disciples testified of Christ. Daily prayer and Scripture study are a must. It makes my days run smoother. It puts me in the right prospective and to think of things that are most important to do in my day. I love to help out with the children's schools and lend support to family and friends. We strive to have daily prayer and scripture study as a family to keep us focused on the importance of living righteously to achieve the greatest happiness we can.
