Hi I'm BJ

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My nickname is BJ. I am a wife, mom, grandma, sister, nurse and I enjoy doing many different things. I was raised in a small rural community, but love living in the city. I love learning and have several college degrees. I have a degree in music and play the piano. I have a degree in nursing and have spent most of my adult life working as a nurse at the bedside or in various leadership positions. As I was growing up I always thought I would be a professional musician. However, in the long run the need to work with people won out and that is where I have spent the majority of the career side of my life. My family is the top priority in my life and I am so blessed to have such a great one. I also love to knit, to read and I love working with people. Being a Mormon is who I am. It's about striving to be the best you can in every aspect of your life and giving back to others around you. I'm proud to be a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a small rural community that was predominantly Mormon. I never thought I would stray from the church, but for a number of years I was inactive. After having my own children, I realized that I wanted to have my family with me forever. I wanted to give my children a strong foundation for success and an understanding of how much our Heavenly Father loves us. I was called to be a Sunday School teacher during that time and had the opportunity to teach the youth of the church. This experience not only strengthened my own testimony, but helped convert my non-member husband to the gospel. I am thankful everyday for the love and paitence of my family and the gentle love and support I received from so many members. I was so blessed to have strong, faithful, but kind members that helped our family make the transition to be what we are today.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to work with the women of the church. I do visits, assist with lessons and other aspects of education. Most importantly I have the chance to serve others. I also play the piano and organ and have had many opportunites to keep the music side of my life alive.
