Hi I'm MargeeMay

I am a mother of three spirited children. I am an artist and I love all things vintage. I am an abuse survivor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I currently have started a vintage shop with some friends of mine and enjoy it immensely. I have also been airbrush face painting at different events. I love being in plays and musicals. I volunteer at my children's school, teaching art and helping in the classroom. I really enjoy being active doing zumba and riding my bicycle. But I often find myself overwhelmed with too much on my plate and get stressed. Trying everyday to do my best and remember I am someone important. Growing up as a sexually abused person has been very, very hard. It effects all aspects of my life. Sorrow and pain have been constant companions for all of my life, though I do count myself very lucky to have lived the life I am living. I have been a Mormon all my life and thankfully I have loving parents, a sister and brothers, and my husband who support me. Throughout trying to overcome the effects of the abuse, my testimony of the atonement of Christ and His love for me has grown and deepened to a sure knowledge that this is true. I also know that I have a loving Father in Heaven who wants me to succeed and has placed so many people and opportunities in my life that I may do so. A life after this life here on earth awaits me full of a happiness and joy that I have never known. If I but do my best and follow the commandments I will have freedom from such sorrows and pains.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to be a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ because I find hope, healing, comfort, and a knowledge of why I am here. Also who I am, why good and bad things happen, and life after here on earth. I have found a sure knowledge of the life to come after our mortal death. If I live righteously, follow the commandments, love the Lord with all my heart, mind, and strength, I will have pure peace and joy. This is my time to prove to my loving Father in Heaven that I am willing to be obedient during this life for a greater reward in the next. I also cling to the knowledge of eternal families. That when I lose a loved one, I will be able to see them again. There are no endings. I cannot wait for the day that I can crawl up onto my Heavenly Father's lap and have him hug me and tell me I did good and I am safe at home.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day by praying continually. I am not perfect at reading my scriptures everyday, but I try. I learn so much when I do. There are treasures to be found to apply into my life and help me understand many things. I serve in the church and my community. I am the chorister for children ages 1 1/2 to 11 and love it.
