Hi I'm Barbie

I am a wife and a mother. I love boating and the hot Arizona summers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife and a mother of awesome and active kids. I have spent numberless hours volunteering in my children's schools and sports programs. I love Boy Scouts and the values it teaches kids. I love living in Arizona and especially the hot summers! Yes, that's right, the 110 days dont bother me. I love to go boating and spending time with my family. I love jokes, and silly movies and TV shows. I guess if I can laugh about something every day I am doing pretty good.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon, I was baptized when I was 8 by my home teacher. My mom was always an active member but my dad drifted in and out of activity. I always attended church and youth group activities, but when it came time to grow up and go to college I knew I had some serious thinking to do about what I believed in. I knew I would be on my own and it would be up to me to decide how I wanted to live. I knew a temple marriage was something I wanted, so I made a list of qualities I wanted in a man and I went to work fixing things about me so I could have that man. Over the years, I have revised the list of things I need to work on as my testimony has grown and I have become stronger. I know Jesus Christ is my savior, I believe the Book of Mormon is true and has the power to change lives. It worked for me!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by continuously striving to be a good person and giving back to those around me. I love the youth, and I work with them weekly. I see value in people and what they have to offer. I try to keep in the forefront of my mind the great example Jesus Christ has set for us in the stories from the New Testament. He truly showed us how to love and accept one another. I try to be optimistic and to remember that the grass is greener where I am standing ;).

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?
