Hi I'm Deb

I am the mom of three boys. I am Vice-President in the PTA. I own and operate two driving schools. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I came from a family of five with two sisters; my parents are divorced and both remarried. I am a BYU Cougar, and my husband is a UW Dawg. We have three silly, busy boys. We love to play sports together, go camping, take bike rides and long walks, and watch movies. I especially love cooking and reading. We own two local driving schools, and I run the schools from home while raising our three boys. I enjoy working and the mental challenges that comes with the job, but I miss the days when I didn't have to split my time between work and parenting. To every thing there is a season.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were both Mormon - my dad was a convert, and my mom was born a member of the church. I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was eight years old. I have always felt at home belonging to the church, but I was truly converted to the faith when I was 15-years-old. I have a sister who stopped attending church when she was in college, and it is confusing to me. I would feel lost without my faith and my church family. The scriptures and counsel of the prophets guide my choices every day and help me feel secure in a life that changes and surprises me every day.

How I live my faith

The most important place I live my faith is in my own home. I am not perfect, but I think that making mistakes and asking forgiveness of my children is just another way of teaching. All of us make mistakes - it's a part of daily life - and we all need the Atonement of Christ to become better, to become perfected. I really like teaching the Gospel, especially to children. I taught children ages 18 months to 12 years at church for several years, and I loved it. You get to teach children the purest and most simple truths of the Gospel. I shared my testimony almost every Sunday. I have always loved the stories in the scriptures where Jesus called for, nurtured, and loved the little children. Being a Mormon is such a huge part of my lifestyle, it doesn't take long for someone I meet to learn what church I belong to. I love it when I get to teach people I meet something new and wonderful they didn't know before about our church.
