Hi I'm Misti

I'm a mom. That's my boy. I love to travel. I love watching sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well, I have 10 siblings and I'm the second oldest in the group but this family is nothing like that of a stereotypical Mormon family; All but one of my siblings is either 'half', 'step' or even 'ex-step'. I'm a single mother to an amazingly beautiful teen son. I have ADD/ADHD and my son has Systemic Lupus Erythematosus but we've both been quite blessed, for the most part, with hushing them and moving on. We both enjoy a vast array of arts. I like to watch football and capture snaps of sunsets, cloudy skies and conceptual structures. Last, but absolutely not least, I love love love love love people. I wish more people just loved people!

Why I am a Mormon

Some of my family are Mormon. However, I wasn't raised by nor did I live near those family members. I was raised by my non-Mormon beloved family members. At age 20, after years without any pressure or pulling from either side, I made the choice to inquire about the Church. The only way to know if a precept is true is to learn it and live it. So that is what did and that is what I continue to do. By continuing to study and follow the doctrines taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, I am blessed with great strengths and preparedness to be a successful mother, wife, sister, friend, co-worker, and neighbor. I'm no longer weak or afraid to fight the battles that we inevitably face throughout our lives. Even through these tough times, I continue to grow happier and more whole with every day.

How I live my faith

If you were reading up above and paying attention, insert smiley face, I'm crafty. One of the most fulfilling ways that I live my faith is through service and love for others. There are countless community organizations that the Church is involved with, such as Red Cross blood drives and donating shoes for homeless children. I also enjoy participating in activities that help our immediate neighbors. For instance, if a family in our neighborhood has a sinkhole that takes down their front porch, we will be there to fix it. They know it and we know it. It's just a matter of picking up the phone and coordinating some volunteers and tools. It's not always hard to do the right thing. If you have the Holy Spirit in your heart it can often be easy and fun as well.
