Hi I'm Theresa

I've lived in 16 cities--from Ojai, CA to Jerusalem, Israel. I am a wife and a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read. I love people. I enjoy sharing my home with others. I am mother to five children--12,10, 8, 6, and 3 years old. I celebrate 15 years of marriage today. I recently took up jogging. I have a desire to scrapbook my childrens' lives, but am behind. I love to index. I have a BS degree; emphasis in Geography. I love to travel. I was trained to be a massage therapist. I am an advocate for my children's education. I enjoy playing on my kids' webkinz account.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Spirit has confirmed to me: that Jesus Christ lived, taught the way for me to live, provided a way for me to repent, was killed and then resurrected for me, that there is a loving and living Heavenly Father who created this beautiful world for me, sent His Son to this earth, and who loves me and wants me to come home to Him, that the Book of Mormon is true scripture and should be used with the teachings of the Bible, that Joseph Smith is and was a prophet called by God and today President Thomas Monson leads the world as God's prophet.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing what I have with others. Since our family just moved to a new city, currently, I give my time towards teaching my children values and giving them love, my time, and experiences. In the past, I have taught and planned events for the youth of all ages. I have taught the women in my area and organized events for them. I provided an art experience at the school for elementary age students. I watch children for others when needed. I provide food when needed. I give my tithes and offerings to the Lord.
