Hi I'm Vicky.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Though I have degrees in English and Music from CSU, I have not used them for employment. I currently work at a holistic dental office where I am able to share ideas about one of my passions--alternative health (nutrition, herbs, homeopathics, energy medicine, medical hypnosis, etc.) Another passion I have is education. I have tried to preserve the natural enlightenment that comes with spontaneous discovery in each of our children. We chose from the smorgasboard of educational choices tutoring, homeschooling, private schooling, public schooling) to meet each child's individual need as they have matured. We feel we have succeeded. However, the most joyous part of my life is the time I spend with my husband, children and grandchildren. In my mind and heart nothing compares to spending time with the people I love.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I seek truth. I believe that the doctrines of Mormonism are true. One of the most unique is who God is. I believe that God is our spiritual Father, and that His son, Jesus Christ is the perfect mortal example. God can be accessed by anyone at anytime through sincere and humble prayer. Guidelines for successful and happy living can be found in scriptures which exemplify Jesus Christ. Both prayer and reading scripture with a sincere desire to learn and do good are the basics for truth's discovery. However, knowledge of the mind is incomplete. Truth is also felt in the heart. The feelings of truth are made possible through the Holy Ghost, who is a revelator of truth. Prayer to God, scriptures about Jesus Christ and feelings for truth from the Holy Ghost have never let me down. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith brings me great personal satisfaction. I enjoy attending church because it gives me a regular time to evaluate and associate with others having similar beliefs. Sometimes, as part of our congregation (ward) I have been invited to direct a hymn, or teach a class of children, or make decisions that affect others in leadership. But I have especially enjoyed the personal visits we make to each other each month. I have about three women that I visit monthly. We share a small scripture, pray together, and check to see if she needs help in any way. It's very rewarding, and provides a great way to make close friends.
