Hi I'm Miriam

I'm a mom of 4. I'm a survivor of Post Partem Cardiomyopathy. I play the Oboe. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Arizona. In high School I ran cross country and Track mostly because it was a challange. I Marched in the Band and was a Drum Major. I love to listen to good music. I got my associates degree at a Junior Collage. I have been happily married for 13 years and have 4 beautiful children. I almost died after my 4th child was born. I prayed to the Lord to spare my life so that I could raise my children not someone else. Through his mercy I lived. I now get to Stay at Home and raise my children. I am busy running kids many directions and find peace in serving them. One of my joys in life is to pick up my little boy give him a squeeze, see his smile and giggle with him. I am an avid scrapbooker and wish I could spend more time doing that. I love to read a good book or watch a movie. I daily choose to be happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the LDS Church. I often think back to a questions one of my class mates asked me at the age of 12. "Are you going to be a Mormon when you grow up." I said I was not sure. That day until today my love of the Savior Jesus Christ and what he did for me has never waivered. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time that I finish reading the whole book I pray and the spirit tells me that it is true. I have had many trials in my life and each time that I try to face them alone I fall but when I seek Heavenly Fathers help I am guided and helped through the trials. I know that I would not have the peace and joy that I experience daily in my life if I was not a Member of this church and follow its teachings.

How I live my faith

I am a firm beliver in serving others. This church gives me the opportunity to do that. As a teenager I was given the challange to lead my peers. Often I was encouraged to get up in front of large groups of people and talk. I went to Argentina on a mission to teach them about our church not knowing before hand the language. I am now fluent in spanish. I have taught young childern, teenagers and adults in our church. My hardest responsibility was to teach the Old Testment class to spanish speakers. In our church women are given great responsibility to teach, plan, and organize. I have sat in many meetings where those who are in need are discussed and then those in the meeting are given opportunities to go out and help otheres. I have seen miracles brought forth because individules are willing to go out and serve other people instead of themselves. I am happiest when I am serving others and this church helps me to do that.
