Hi I'm Audrey

Pure Seattle-ite, part-time working mom of 3 boys, love to try new things, create and play outdoors with family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom of 3 energetic boys who loves to play and laugh. I love volleyball, swimming and tennis and recently finished my first sprint triathlon. I have a Bachelors degree in Family History which I try and stay current with. I like to see if I can create or do something myself as good as you can find in a store. I listen to books on tape since I must multi-task to get everything done that I want to! I love to garden, play piano and organ, sing and especially play games. I love girls night out and chocolate. I also love when I get a few hour window to work on one of the many projects I have. I don't understand people who use the word bored because there is so much out there to learn and try!! I love to travel, eat jelly beans, and sleep (not all together). My family is the center of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

The longer I'm alive, the more the gospel makes sense to me. It gives me reason to live, help others and be a good wife and mom to my family. With my creative personality the gospel also helps me to focus on the things that matter most. Born and raised a member of the LDS church, I have had so many experiences of being directly blessed and taken care of by the Lord. The Gospel makes me happy and hopeful. Having a family member dealing with depression, the Gospel helps me keep hope and perspective so that i can be a good support. While the Members of the Church may be imperfect, the doctrines are not. They are solid and unchanging. I love that I have a strong foundation to build my life around. I love that there are living prophets that continue to teach us. Years ago when I tested my own beliefs and prayed to see if I really believed everything I'd been taught, I experienced an overwhelming peaceful feeling and the thought came, "You know this is true. You've known all along." It just all makes sense to me. We are suppose to be striving to become better individuals. We do have a purpose here and we are suppose to be Christ-like and help each other. We are suppose to be together as families so that we can learn and develop. Deep down, that is what will bring the most happiness. If you take it all away, what is there to live for? I know without any doubt that the Gospel is completely true. I really, really know. I didn't just convince myself of this. I know. I have a strong testimony of the Book of Mormon. In the Bible it says "By their fruits ye shall know them". I read from the Book of Mormon and can feel the good. It testifies of Jesus Christ and shows me how I can live my life to become better. Besides if it wasn't true, there's no way a bunch of 19 & 20 year old missionaries could be continually baptizing and converting new members. They are simply the hands of the Lord. His words are what convert people. I hope you read the Book of Mormon for yourself.

How I live my faith

My Faith is part of everyday. Prayers are said daily to start and end the day, for meals, for others and for specific needs. We have one night a week together as a family where we teach Gospel principles and have fun together. Principles of the Gospel are talked about daily with my children as we talk about their interaction with others during school, sports or work. I teach a class on Sundays that helps others to learn how to find their ancestors. I also help in planning fun, inspirational and service oriented activities on both a large and small level for many different age groups. I often play the organ or piano for musical numbers, small choirs, congregation singing or my own families enjoyment. I especially enjoy teaching the children because of their innocence, strong faith and excitement.
