Hi I'm Liberty

I'm a stay-at-home mom who lives in South Carolina. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a stay-at-home mom of two young children. My husband and I were college sweethearts and have been married for 10 years. In our spare time, my husband and I like to take our kids to the nearby beaches to collect fossilized shark teeth and seashells. I earned a Bachelor's degree in psychology and journalism and once my children are older I plan to obtain my Master's degree in a related area. I find the knowledge I gained in school has been invaluable in helping me in my efforts as a mom.

Why I am a Mormon

Some of my earliest childhood memories are of attending worship services as a family. My parents taught me the gospel of Jesus Christ by their example and by their faithful devotion to the Lord. As soon as I turned eight years old I was baptized a member of the Church. As I grew into young adulthood, I began to question everything. Like all teenagers, I had my share of doubts. It was during that time that I believe I truly gained a testimony of God and his Son Jesus Christ and in their love for me. As I would kneel to pray I could feel the peace and love I yearned for. I also began to understand what it means to be a child of God. I'm not a Mormon because it is the faith of my parents, I am a Mormon because I have received individual answers to my prayers from a loving Heavenly Father. I'm grateful to loving earthly parents who showed me how to have a relationship with God.

How I live my faith

I'm fortunate to be able to teach the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ each week in Sunday School. By so doing, I get to immerse myself during the week in gospel study of the scriptures and the words of living prophets. My testimony grows stronger as I seek Heavenly Father's guidance in what should be included in class discussions. Without fail, the spirit helps me teach his precious children. I feel his great love for them. It makes me want to be not only a better teacher, but also a better friend, daughter, sister, wife, and mother.
