Hi I'm Stacie

I'm a wife and mother of three. I am a homemaker who loves music, cooking, creativity and serving others. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 24 years. My husband and I have three children. We learned early on in our marriage that I would struggle with infertility. With the help of modern day medicine and a lot of faith and prayer our two oldest daughters were born. We then turned to adoption. With some failed attempts, eventually we were blessed with our son. I learned a lot of life's lessons through the process; such as patience, faith, and trust. I feel like I have been blessed with an ability to love and nuture. I have found happiness and comfort in nurturing other people's children. I have been fortunate to be a homemaker while my children have been raised. I find great joy in my divine role as a mother, wife, daughter, and sister. I have loved working to make our house a home where our children want to be and return often. I enjoy large family gatherings with extended family. I love music, and enjoy playing the piano and singing along with my family. I love being a mormon and find joy as well in serving our Heavenly Father and his children.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been fortunate to have been raised a member of the LDS Church. I was raised in a loving family by parents who loved the Lord and wanted to please Him. Their example and influence had a great impact on me. I saw in them the happiness and joy that comes from living a Christ centered life. Step by step my own testimony grew as I "experimented on the word," prayed for answers, and exercised faith when faced with life's challanges. Growing up a Mormon, I was blessed to have been taught good moral values from my parents and from teachers and leaders who were called to serve over me. I was blessed with friends who shared the same beliefs and together we were able to strengthen one another in living the teachings and principles of the Gospel. Through these experiences I was led to met and marry my husband. He is an active member of the Church who served as a full time missionary for two years. We were married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. We were sealed together not just for this life, but for eternity. We have been married 24 years. I believe the key to the success of our marriage has come from living our faith. I love that the mormon faith is centered around families. I love my family. I want to be with them forever, and through the teachings of the Church I know that I can be. As a mother, I am grateful for the support my family receives as members of the Church. My children have grown up in a wholesome environment. They have been able to avoid some of the pitfalls that come with teenage years, as they have followed the teachings of the Church and have had influential leaders and friends in their lives just as I had growing up. I would not choose to live my life in any other way.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by striving daily to make sure my actions are consistent with what I believe. I find joy in serving others. Currently I serve along side my husband working with the full time missionaries in our area. Missionary work and sharing the gospel with our friends and neighbors has been an important part of our married life. I find joy in helping others Come Unto Christ. I also currently work with the Cub Scouts. Working with the youth of our church has been a blessing in my life. I have enjoyed planning and carrying out activities, teaching lessons, teaching music, or attending youth camps. It has been a rewarding part of my life to help encourage, mentor and teach the youth of our Church.
