Hi I'm Audrey

I grew up near Chicago. I'm a wife, mother, teacher, and volunteer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the mother of 4 beautiful children. I volunteer at my childrens' schools, both in the classroom and with the PTA. I love to play the piano and sing. I played the trombone in marching band at BYU, which is where I met my wonderful husband. I taught 2nd grade for a year and am now blessed to stay home with my children.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born after my parents were married in the Salt Lake Temple. I have been a member of the LDS church all my life. I was blessed to have parents who taught me the gospel as a child and modeled how to live a good and righteous life. I have seen first hand the good the church brings to people and I can tell in my own life when I have forgotten to make Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ my anchor in the world. I love to make time in my day for scripture study and prayer. The day just isn't complete without spending time in worship and contemplation. I know that the good things in my life are blessings from my Heavenly Father and that even my challenges are there to help me grow. I am grateful for Jesus Christ's atoning sacrifice for each one of us.

How I live my faith

Right now I am in charge of all the children ages 18 months to 11 years old at church. There are over 100 children. I am blessed with many fantastic teachers, music leaders, and others who willingly share their time and talents to teach them. I have felt the Spirit often when I am among these amazing children. Each one brings their own personality and spirit to the group. My favorite times are when I am planning a lesson and I distinctly feel the guidance of my Heavenly Father - teaching me what the children need to learn and how to teach them. They know so much and have such good hearts. I also feel very strongly about music, especially in church and at home. Music can uplift and teach better than words. I once taught a song to the children that had the phrase "but Jesus is real to me." Every time I heard them sing that phrase I felt the warmth of the Holy Ghost telling me that it is true. It often brought tears to my eyes. I also heard from many of the parents that their children were singing that song at home and they felt the same way. Heavenly Father can communicate with us through music in ways that we cannot even comprehend. I am grateful for my own musical talents and appreciate others who can share their testimony through music.
