Hi I'm Stacey

I am a wife and mother. I am a slightly obsessive perfectionist, who is perfect at absolutely nothing. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona and am the 6th of 7 children. I love being part of a big family and am blessed to still live near many of my siblings and their families, where we enjoy close relationships. I attended college to become a dental hygienist, and have enjoyed that working aspect of my life. But my most important job is being a stay at home mom, and feel that I am doing the most important work on earth. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have 3 beautiful children, 2 girls, and 1 boy.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel that I was richly blessed to grow up as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My mother's side of the family comes from a long line of LDS church members, but my father is a convert to the church. As I grew up, I remember my father always telling our family about the many miracles and experiences that happened in his life that took him on a path to find the church. Those stories, combined with my family living gospel principles in our home, allowed me to feel the spirit at a young age, which is when I gained my testimony that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on the earth. I don't consider my life full of any miracles or extraordinary experiences, but a life of constant opportunities to feel the spirit, and realizing that living the principles of the gospel made me feel happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be obedient to the counsel of a living prophet on the earth. I am not perfect in all that we have been asked to do, but I know that a constant striving to be obedient brings me happiness and peace, even when life is difficult and brings trials. As a member of the church, I serve as a counselor in the Young Women's Program, and hope to make a difference in the lives of girls I teach, just as I remember my YW leaders, influencing my life for the better.
