Hi I'm Tonia

I grew up in Idaho and Iowa. I'm married and I love working with Children of all ages!! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to dance and listen to music. I also love to go on vacations. I especially love going to new places!!! I also enjoy watching movies with my husband... I do have my BA degree. I attended schools in both Idaho and Iowa. I love being out in nature and going for walks, and love to read good books as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints when I was eight.. I was not always actively involved as a child. later on in my life as an adult,I became more involved and started to participate regularly in worship services and other church activities. As I became more involved,I began to understand better the plan God has for me and that I am truly a child of God. it was at this time,that I began to be what I call,"converted" to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As I continued on,I realized more of my purpose, and was able to do missionary work in Arizona for 18 months. it was during this time that I gained a strong witness of the truth, and of Jesus Christ and his atonement. I was also able to see how this truth blessed the lives of those I had the privilege of coming into contact with.. because of this and other experiences that I have had, I have stayed actively involved in the church. I have experienced peace and joy as I have kept my covenants with God and I have been brought closer to God and Christ. life can be hard and sometimes the challenges I have can seem overwhelming at times I have lost both my parents to Cancer and it has been a hard thing for me and I miss them so much!!, but because of the knowledge that I have, I know that everything will turn out right and that God will never abandon me, and that he is always there. he will always be there for his children. he loves us and he wants us to be happy!! and I know that through God's plan for me,I can be with my family forever!!

How I live my faith

At church I visit and watch over a group of about three women. I keep in contact with them through visits,phone calls and letters, and social media. I have a partner(my hubby!!!!) that helps me to do this. our primary goal is to make sure they know they are loved and to see if we can be of help to them in any way. and to help them stay connected with the church. we may also at times share a spiritual message with them. I have made wonderful associations and friendships as I have done this. I am also currently serving in the primary!!!!!!! which is a children's organization at church. I teach eight to eleven yr old boys about the gospel. each week!! I love working with them! and they always teach me something too!!
