Hi I'm Stephanie

I graduated from Culinary Arts School. I'm a stay at home mother of three. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spend each day with my three wonderful children. I home teach preschool for my two oldest. I want to have a home of learning for me and for my children. I love to read books, sew, crochet, and create things with my hands. I love to cook good food, and love even more when people enjoy the things that I make for them. My favorite times are when I can be outdoors in nature. My children and I love to walk and enjoy the beauty and peace of the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, my parents and older siblings were already baptized members. I was taught the gospel of Jesus Christ since I was a very young child. I always felt that the things that I learned were true, but it wasn't until my teenage years that I truly began my conversion. After years of learning about and reading the Book of Mormon, without ever questioning, I realized the I had built in my heart a knowledge that they were true. I was asked to bear my testimony, to tell of my faith in the Prophet Joesph Smith. It was then, as I spoke aloud the feelings that I had only felt in my mind and heart that I knew, in a deep and profound way, that it was true. My emotions were strong at that moment and are still to this day when I think of it. Truth can lay dormant in your heart for years, but until we act on those feelings, they are not real. They are real for me now, and only grow in conviction and strength over time.

How I live my faith

The greatest way that I live my faith is through my responsibilities as a mother. Each day my children teach me and need to be taught about life and our role in it. I try each day to live the way the Savior would have me, because I know that they are watching me, to see if I believe the things that I teach to them. I also have the privilege of working with some of the youth at church each Sunday. I teach a group of young women between the ages of 16-18. I remember how important those years were for me in forming who I am today. I live my faith for these young woman as well. I live the standards that our given for our youth, and share my love of the Savior and his plan for each of us. I only hope that in some small way I can be instrumental in one girls search for truth and happiness.
